A review of carbon monoxide incident information
This report has been written by Advantica Technology as a
continuation of the work established during the Joint Industry
Programme (JIP) Addressing Carbon Monoxide (CO) Issues, within the
Incident Data project area. It covers the period 1999/00. The aim
of this work is to identify common causes of CO incidents related
to appliance and system design, installation and maintenance. This
information can then be used to further improve customer safety, to
target expenditure on CO incident prevention and to identify
further research work.
As part of the JIP project a national data collection scheme for piped natural gas and LPG CO incidents, which occur within Great Britain, was established by Advantica Technology. This was with the support of the HSE and the gas industry. This report provides information
collected via this national data collection scheme and analysed by Advantica Technology.
Historical data has also been used within the report, from previously unpublished internal company reports, to show incident trends.
Some of these research reports are very large. For information about expected download times please see our FAQs pages.
