Carbon monoxide can be a deadly substance and is found in many industrial workplace settings.
Too much exposure and it can cause brain damage and in some cases, death. If you or a family member has been affected due to the negligence of your employer then it is possible you could make a carbon monoxide claim.
I’ve never been in an accident before. I was hesitant about making a claim. First Personal Injury sorted it all out and explained everything.

Carbon monoxide claims predominantly originate from the workplace but there are instances where you can be exposed to the deadly gas in the home.
Your employer has a duty of care to protect you from the risk of being exposed to harmful substances under Health and Safety legislation. In particular, there are rules relating to the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health which forms part of the legislation (CoSHH).
Under the CoSHH, there are particular rules relating to poisonous substances used on a regular basis. For example, your employer will have to provide proper ventilation for workers who may come into contact with carbon monoxide.
Employers also have to ensure risk assessments are carried out routinely and there are many more things an employer needs to do to be compliant with Health and Safety legislation.
If you believe you or a family member has not been given the correct protection in terms of health and safety then it is worth investigating if you should begin a personal injury claim.
