EnergyUK officially launched its 2017 CO BeAlarmed! campaign in Parliament on Wednesday 29th March. Carbon Monoxide – Be Alarmed! is the national campaign to reduce the number of deaths and injuries caused by carbon monoxide. Since 2008, the campaign has encouraged people to install carbon monoxide alarms in their homes.
Manager of our Energy Safety team, Sara Abuzaid, and Researcher and Project Officer, Jake Botham, both pictured, stopped by to support the campaign on Wednesday.
Research carried out by the Gas Industry Safety Group (GISG) has revealed a disparity in the quality of gas engineer training in the UK. This comes after recent figures show an increase in unsafe gas work, from a volume of 1% to 5%, by recently qualified engineers in the UK.
The GISG carried out in-depth interviews with a range of gas engineers that had qualified within the last 18 months, asking questions about the length of the courses, the weighting of theory and practical aspects, placements with gas engineers and the portfolios they had to complete.
