Important Changes to Safety Guidance

Following a coroner’s verdict and in conjunction with HSE, HAE is changing the wording of all safety guidance leaflets relating to tools with internal combustion engines which produce CO (Carbon Monoxide).

The wording to be included under Work Area point 2 and approved by HSE is:

Using this equipment indoors or in confined spaces could cause fatal carbon monoxide poisoning. Never use it in domestic premises and only use it in other indoor situations if its suitability and the ventilation required has been fully assessed. Mechanical extraction ventilation will almost always be required.

The following leaflets are affected and members are encouraged to review those in use and where necessary replace them with the latest version from Print on Demand, or consider ordering new stock.
