Free Gas Safe Training for frontline staff and volunteers

The Gas Safe Charity provides free hour-long Zoom training course to raise awareness of carbon monoxide (CO) risks, aimed at front line staff who provide support to vulnerable people in their own homes. Already thousands of people have attended these courses but we want to promote it even more widely, as it is such an important topic, particularly at the moment. It could save lives.

As we move into Autumn and heating is switched back on, risks increase. It has never been more important for front line staff and volunteers to be more aware of the risks of CO in the home. The cost of living crisis is increasing those risks, particularly to vulnerable people who may be using unsafe heating practices in their home or not having their gas appliances checked in order to save money. New legislation about carbon monoxide detectors for landlords is also becoming law later this year, which is covered in this training.

Aimed at front line staff and volunteers, they help people who work in the homes of vulnerable people to be more aware of the risks and to help prevent poisoning taking place. The interactive workshop lasts an hour. To find out more and to book, please click on this link: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/115618952399
