||The aim of this work was to identify common causes of carbon monoxide (CO) incidents related to appliance and system design, installation and maintenance, for the purpose of improving customer safety, targeting expenditure on CO incident prevention and identifying further research work. A national data collection scheme for CO incidents which occur within the United Kingdom was established. This report provides information collected through this data collection scheme, and covers the reporting period 2001/02. During this period, there were 55 piped natural gas incidents and 10 LPG incidents reported, involving 13 fatalities and 109 non-fatal casualties. The data are expressed by time of the year, type of appliance or system and likely cause of the incident.
