Aico are proud to be supporting Gas Safety Week between 16th and 22nd September 2019. Gas Safety Week is an annual safety week to raise awareness of gas safety and the importance of taking care of your gas appliances. It is coordinated by Gas Safe Register, the official list of gas engineers who are legally allowed to work on gas. Badly fitted and poorly serviced gas appliances can cause gas leaks, fires, explosions and Carbon Monoxide poisoning.
As part of the activities to raise awareness during this important week, Aico’s Mobile Demonstration Units will be out on tour, educating members of the public, about the dangers of Carbon Monoxide and providing information.
Aico’s Regional Specification Managers and members of Aico’s Marketing Team will be visiting Norwich, Luton, Plymouth, Blackpool and Middlesbrough throughout Gas Safety Week. For further information on dates, times and locations, please visit www.aico.co.uk/latest-news-events
Aico have been running their ‘Why Would You Risk It?’ Campaign since March 2019, the campaign aims to highlight the risks associated with Carbon Monoxide, whilst providing information about how to stay safe.
Aico provide a range of free resources via the website and during Gas Safety Week will be releasing a brand new Carbon Monoxide information card, which is free to order from 16th September, the first day of the Gas Safety Week via the Resources area at www.aico.co.uk/technical-support/guides-publications
Carbon Monoxide is otherwise known as the silent killer. This is because it is a highly poisonous gas you cannot see, smell or taste, that can kill quickly. Many people do not know the symptoms of Carbon Monoxide, as they are similar to flu.
