Smoke and carbon monoxide alarm manufacturer Sprue Safety Products, has won the Gas Safety Initiative of the Year Award at the year’s Association of Gas Safety Managers Awards ceremony in Leicestershire.
The company’s national campaign Project SHOUT, won the award for raising awareness of the life threatening dangers of CO poisoning and how the simple solution of installing a CO alarm can help save lives.
Using a combination of TV advertising, social media and partnerships with other stakeholders, this awareness campaign is helping to spread the word about CO, its dangers and deadly consequences.
Robert Lyon, head of UK marketing and creator of the campaign, said: “We are very proud to have won this prestigious award and it’s a great testament to all the hard work and effort put in by everyone at Sprue Safety Products.
“In the UK, approximately one person dies from carbon monoxide poisoning every week. With more than 16 million households without a CO alarm installed, the need for increased awareness is absolutely imperative.”
Sprue Safety Products were the first company to develop CO diagnostics and are currently the only manufacturer that offers an out of the box radio frequency (RF) CO solution.
The campaign was launched in September 2015, to raise awareness of the dangers of CO.
