The BSS has just published a new handout as an essential guide to all the new requirements and background information. It covers what is required and how the checks will be carried out by BSS Examiners and how the alarms will help keep crew members safe, including:
- CO alarm makers guidance about where to place a CO alarm to achieve best protection,
- What type of CO alarm to buy,
- What to do if a CO alarm goes off,
- What to do if carbon monoxide poisoning is suspected.
Many people don’t realise the dangers of Carbon Monoxide poisoning, or CO as it’s known. It only takes one faulty appliance, blocked flue or a build-up of engine exhaust gas to potentially harm you and your family. This series of videos helps you understand the what Carbon Monoxide is, the symptoms of CO poisoning, how to choose the right alarm to protect you and your family, and importantly what do if your alarm goes off.
