The Gas Safe Charity provides free hour-long Zoom training course to raise awareness of carbon monoxide risks, aimed at front line staff who provide support to vulnerable people in their own homes. They have added new dates to our sold-out programme, including some into September. The UK is facing a fuel poverty crisis, which will increase the risks of carbon monoxide poisoning. They want to help front line staff and volunteers to be more aware of these risks and help prevent poisonings.
The Gas Safe Charity continues to offer more of its popular and free carbon monoxide awareness workshops. Aimed at front line staff and volunteers, they help people who work in the homes of vulnerable people be more aware of the risks and to help prevent poisoning from taking place.
The interactive workshop lasts an hour.

About the Event
You may not really have thought about carbon monoxide (CO) risks in your day to day work, both to your clients and to you. There is a duty of care to both of you. This online, hour long workshop is aimed at front line staff and volunteers from social care, NHS, FRS, and voluntary and private sectors working in the UK who visit vulnerable people in their homes every day.
The Think CO online workshop will tell you more about the sources, signs and symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning, how to help prevent it and what the implications are to you and your client. In particular, we focus on long term, low level risks which can have serious consequences and help you spot and address the risks. As more vulnerable people are spending time at home, the risks increase.
The online workshop is a mix of presentations, scenarios and practical exercises. Only the presenters will be on video, but participants can ask (or type) questions as we go along. The Chat function also enables you to answer questions and respond to real scenarios.
We expect the workshop to last just over an hour, but there will be an opportunity to ask further questions at the end. We will send you a Zoom link at least 24 hours before the workshop starts.
