What are the Risks?
The effects of CO poisoning look similar to flu – with symptoms like headaches, nausea and fatigue. Small leaks can leave lasting damage on a persons brain if exposed over long periods of time. In bad CO leaks a person can be left unconscious and dying within minutes.
Why do i need CO2 Alarms?
As a landlord you have a Duty of Care to the people living in your
property. Part of that means giving your tenants the earliest possible warning of CO to enable them to escape and call out a Gas Saferegistered engineer to find the leak.
It’s key to remember that you cannot see, smell or taste CO. an alarm is the only way to detect of this serious risk. You as a landlord could be held liable for any injury or harm caused to your tenant in your property if there is a CO leak, so make sure you are covered.
Common sources of CO include the following wood, oil or gas fuelled appliances:
- Room heaters
- Charcoal grills
- Cooking ranges
- Water heaters
- Vehicles run in closed garages
- Portable generators
- Wood burning stoves
