The Parliamentary launch of 'From Awareness to Action' - the APPCOG's new inquiry report - took place on Monday 19th January in Parliament.
Attendees heard from inquiry co-Chair Baroness Finlay of Llandaff, and other contributing Advisory Board members, including David Palferman (HSE), Scott Darroch (Gas Safe Register), Roland Wessling (Cranfield University) and Barry Sheerman MP (APPCOG). A short Q&A session followed the speeches, focussing on the best ways of taking forward the 21 recommendations within the report.The report is available to download here, and printed copies can also be sent out on request. The report follows a 9-month inquiry process, undertaken by an Advisory Board of academics, industry figures, parliamentarians and others. Carbon monoxide gas can come from many sources and exposure can happen in numerous different environments, and so the inquiry took evidence from a range of organisations and individuals. This means that myriad behaviours were considered in designing interventions to promote CO safety, and the report reflects this. The inquiry report provides recommendations and guidance for improving carbon monoxide safety in the short and long term.
