Carbon Monoxide


Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colourless, odourless, tasteless, poisonous gas produced by incomplete burning of carbon-based fuels, including gas, oil, wood, and coal. CO is often referred to as ‘The Silent Killer’, because you can’t smell, hear or see carbon monoxide, yet it is a highly toxic gas which can have devastating consequences. CO is present in several different industries, such as steel works, manufacturing, electricity supply, coal and metal mining, food manufacturing, oil and gas, production of chemicals and petroleum.
