Arctic Hayes, one of the UK’s leading suppliers of professional plumbing tools and equipment, including Carbon Monoxide and Smoke Alarms, is marking Gas Safety Week (11th to 17th September) with a message to installers to protect themselves from the threat of Carbon Monoxide poisoning by carrying a Personal Carbon Monoxide Alarm.
“As well as raising the awareness of gas safety amongst homeowners, the safety of Gas Safe engineers must be a priority – not just during Gas Safety Week, but at every site visit. Carrying a personal Carbon Monoxide Alarm could save your life and provides peace of mind whilst on site” says Lee Parsons, CEO of Arctic Hayes.
The Arctic Hayes SleepSafe® Personal Carbon Monoxide Alarm is a lightweight, compact alarm for the early detection of carbon monoxide and is ideal for heating engineers at work, at home or on holiday. The alarm activates when the carbon monoxide level exceeds 30ppm with a 75dB audible alarm and LED indicators, and it can be worn on belts or hung on bags with its hook. With a durable and shock-resistant casing, this personal alarm is a Gas Safe Registered engineer’s first defence against the potentially deadly effects of carbon monoxide poisoning.
“These are high quality alarms that clip and sit nicely on workwear and will be your first line of defence against an invisible threat,” continues Lee. “We will be giving away a number of SleepSafe® Carbon Monoxide Alarms via our social media channels over the course of Gas Safety Week.”
According to the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence there are approximately 4,000 attendances to A&E each year, 440 hospital admissions, and according to the Office of National Statistics 116 people died from the toxic effects of Carbon Monoxide poisoning in 2020.
Arctic Hayes SleepSafe® range of Carbon Monoxide and Smoke Detection safety products is well known amongst professionals. These alarms give audible and visual alerts, also available are Aerosol Alarm Tester Sprays to check the devices are in working order. Arctic Hayes also supplies over 450+ products geared towards the professional heating and plumbing engineer.
