How do we teach children about Carbon Monoxide?

We know the importance of everyone knowing the signs of a carbon monoxide leak and what to do if you suspect a carbon monoxide leak in the home. This doesn’t just apply to adults; we’re also on a mission to educate our nation’s children and help them understand the risks posed by carbon monoxide (CO).

For the past 5 years, we have been delivering a Carbon Monoxide Awareness initiative to years 2 and 3 in schools across the country to help raise awareness around carbon monoxide (CO). This has been, and continues to be through our caped crusader, Safety Seymour.

Safety Seymour now has help to support his mission to raise awareness of CO. The CO Crew are a crew that helps educate KS2 children in years 5 and 6 children.

We also run an annual CO Safety competition where children aged between 5 and 11 are asked to create a piece of media, in any format, warning of the dangers of Carbon Monoxide.
