Carbon Monoxide Poisoningprogram focuses on the danger of CO poisoning and the precautions to take in avoiding exposure.Carbon monoxide, it is a gas that can't be smelled, tasted, or seen and virtually all industries count carbon monoxide among their potential hazards. It may arise unexpectedly as the result incomplete combustion of carbonations material. For carbon monoxide, abbreviated CO, may be generated as a normally occurring by-product to decomposition. The incidence of carbon monoxide poisoning is unusually high in auto maintenance garages, foundries, blast furnaces, and certain chemical processes where it is used as a base chemical or generated as a waste product. CO is also a threat in non-industrial settings. In fact, CO is one of the most common chemical killers both in industry and the home. As early as 1970, it was estimated by the National Safety Council that 1600 people died from CO poisoning and at least 10,000 others suffered each year from exposure to the debilitating effects of CO. Many cases, both fatal and non-fatal, remain unreported or incorrectly diagnosed. Symptoms of CO poisoning may be easily confused with the onset of a cold, flu, or other common disorders.
