Battle against deadly CO poisoning from gas heaters heading to Melbourne

Friday, 24 August 2018

A statewide program to enhance the skills of plumbers who install and service gas heaters, ensuring households are not at risk from carbon monoxide poisoning, heads to Melbourne next week.

Training sessions will be held in Melbourne on Monday, 27 August and Tuesday, 28 August.

The Victorian Building Authority, along with Energy Safe Victoria and Master Plumbers, will host a series of training sessions providing expert advice to registered and licensed gasfitters and Type A servicing plumbers on the latest techniques to accurately test for carbon monoxide spillage and identify negative pressure situations.

Almost 1900 gasfitters have already registered for the eight free training sessions being held in Melbourne early next week, but some places are still available across the two days.
