Monday, October 31, 2011 at 16:00PM

As the report from a parliamentary inquiry into reducing the amount of carbon monoxide poisoning is published, Energy Networks Association (ENA) welcomes the recommendations for greater support for alarms to help warm people about the silent killer.

ENA Chief Executive David Smith said:

“The recommendations from this report are very important and point to the need for increased support and cooperation between the industry, Government and health professionals.

“A lot of work is being done to address this and raise awareness but the numbers affected by this silent killer show that there is room for improvement by including greater detection and developing better regulation.”
