The Carbon Monoxide All Fuels Action Forum was launched this week in Parliament. The new body aims to bring together all key figures throughout industry, government and charities that are working towards the common goal to eradicate deaths caused by carbon monoxide poisoning.
The group will emphasise that carbon monoxide poisoning can occur whenever a fossil fuel is burned, whether that be gas, oil, wood or coal. The group will share and spread knowledge of the dangers of carbon monoxide, coordinating awareness campaigns and inform policy making.
This new body was one of the recommendations by the All-Party Parliamentary Carbon Monoxide Group. It is hoped that the two groups will be able to bring together a cohesive attack on carbon monoxide poisoning involving Parliament, industry representatives and charities.
