Prevent Death From Carbon Monoxide
Carbon monoxide—an odorless, tasteless and colorless gas—
causes the needless death of many persons each year. As a guide
which may save lives. Plant Safety Director Alvin Riley offers the
1. Make certain that there is plenty of oxygen available
wherever you may be—either at home on in an automobile.
2. Check automobiles from time to time to safeguard against
faulty mufflers or exhaust pipes.
The Safety Director points out that a large portion of the ex
pected fatalities from gas poisoning are likely to occur in the fall
and winter months.
“In cold weather, people tend to close their windows and
overheat their houses. Because of this, victims are usually found in
a tightly-closed, unventilated room with some kind of open-flame
heating device,” he said.
THOSE EXPOSED to the poison gas are seldom aware of its
presence. One of the best ways to detect carbon monoxide is by the
feeling of sleepiness which accompanies poisoning from this gas.
According to statistics, most fatalities occur in homes, but
faulty exhaust systems or broken mufflers often allow the gas
to penetrate the floor board of a vehicle, causing death.
Carbon monoxide acts on the red corpusles of the body. Scien
tists say that the time it takes for the gas to kill a normal human
being varies according to the conditions present and the general
health of the individual concerned.
