Think CO

Communicating the dangers of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning to those who work in the homes of vulnerable people.

The Think CO Programme is:

Preventative   Our aim is to enable you to know more about CO poisoning and risks so you can help the people you work with to be more CO aware.
Practical We provide activities and resources to make front-line staff and volunteers more aware of the risks of CO poisoning.
Accessible The activities are all free.  We cover the UK, and we minimise jargon to make the key Think CO messages understandable.
