This report covers accidental CO poisoning incidents resulting from the use of piped natural gas for the period 1st April 2000 to 31st March 2001. Data for incidents up to 1994/95 come from Advantica's own incident recording system. Following the restructuring of British Gas, insufficient information was collected to enable the statistics for 1995/96 to be calculated. From 1996/97 the information is obtained from incident reports and investigation forms completed on behalf of gas suppliers. If any additional reports should be received after publication of this report, they will be included within updated annual statistical tables in future reports.
