Learn the six main symptoms of carbon monoxide (CO ) poisoning - headaches, nausea, dizziness, breathlessness, collapse and loss of consciousness and teach them to others.  Unsafe gas appliances can put you at risk of CO poisoning, gas leaks, fires and explosions.

Be more cautious with your gas appliances at home

Check gas appliances for warning signs that they are not working properly e.g. lazy yellow flames instead of crisp blue ones, black sooty marks or stains on or around the appliance and high levels of condensation in the room.
