FREE CARBON MONOXIDE AWARENESS WORKSHOP IN PLYMOUTH ON 9TH AUGUST 2017

7th July 2017 By

The Gas Safe Charity is running a series of free morning workshops across the UK aimed at ANY organisation that delivers services in the homes of vulnerable people.

Low levels of carbon monoxide have been linked to increased risk of falls and dementia.

Front line staff and volunteers have a key preventative role but there is also a duty of care for employers. A range of organisations have attended past ThinkCO workshops and have now introduced carbon monoxide awareness into their induction and general training. There is usually only one place per organisation per workshop and each participant will receive a training pack, buffet lunch and a free CO detector for each organisation.

To learn more and to get a booking form please click HEREor email thinkco@gassafecharity.org.uk.

Any questions please call Hilary on 07813 977798 or Simon on 07549 956376.
