Carbon monoxide

Carbon monoxide (CO) is dangerous and can be fatal. This poisonous, colourless, odourless gas kills on average six people in Ireland every year.

How carbon monoxide is produced

Carbon monoxide can be produced by any fuel when it is burning, including coal, turf, oil, gas or wood.  In most cases, people do not know that they are being exposed to carbon monoxide so it is it vital that safety precautions are taken.
