What are the most common farming accidents?
Over 300,000 people in Britain work in the agricultural sector today. Many farmers and farm workers were raised in farming families or communities and are proud of the rewarding work...
This week we are proud to be supporting Gas Safety Week (17 – 23 September) to raise awareness of gas safety and the importance of taking care of gas appliances.
Coordinated by the Gas Safe Register, the official list of gas engineers who are legally allowed to work on gas, it aims to educate the general public about the dangers of badly fitted and poorly serviced gas appliances, which can cause gas leaks, fires, explosions and carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning.
Every year, thousands of people across the UK are diagnosed with carbon monoxide poisoning. It is a highly poisonous gas that can kill quickly with no warning because you cannot see it, taste it or smell it.
By taking care of your gas appliances properly, accidents, ill health and potential fatalities can be prevented.
The Gas Safe Register offers the following 6 simple checks to help you minimise the risks:
For gas safety advice and to find or check an engineer visit the Gas Safe Register website at GasSafeRegister.co.uk. Alternatively call the free helpline on 0800 408 5500.
More than 50 people die and 200 are left seriously ill by carbon monoxide poisoning every year in the UK.
If you believe you or a family member has been exposed to CO poisoning due to somebody else’s negligence, you may be able to make a claim for compensation. You can phone or email us for a free chat.
