Think CO – An introductory workshop to carbon monoxide (CO) risks at home

The aim of this virtual Zoom workshop is to raise awareness of carbon monoxide risks for people who work in the homes of vulnerable people

Book your place

You may not really have thought about carbon monoxide (CO) risks in your day to day work, both to your clients and to you. There is a duty of care to both of you. This online, hour long workshop is aimed at front line staff and volunteers from social care, NHS, FRS, voluntary and private sectors working in the UK who visit vulnerable people in their homes every day.

The Think CO online workshop will tell you more about the sources, signs and symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning, how to help prevent it and what the implications are to you and your client. In particular, we focus on long term, low level risks which can have serious consequences and help you spot and address the risks. As more vulnerable people are spending time at home, the risks increase.

The online workshop is a mix of presentation, scenarios and practical exercises. Only the presenters will be on video, but participants can ask (or type) questions as we go along. The Chat function also enables you to answer questions and respond to real scenarios.

We expect the workshop to last just over an hour, but there will be an opportunity to ask further questions at the end. We will send you a Zoom link at least 24 hours before the workshop starts.

If you would prefer to do an e-learning course instead, covering similar topics and please email us on e-learning@gassafecharity.org.uk to receive log on details.

By signing up for this workshop you agree for us to contact you again in relation to issues relating to carbon monoxide awareness in the homes of vulnerable people, as and when relevant and useful information becomes available. Please contact us directly to opt out if you would prefer not to hear from us again.
