- Chair of the GST Board of Trustees
- GST Trustees
Under the leadership of Chris Bielby, the current Chair, and our Board of Trustees the Trust has become the leading gas safety research charity and is committed to becoming the trusted sources of evidence-based information relating to CO. This evidence is used to inform and implement far reaching safety initiatives for the betterment of safety in the UK. Since 2013 we have awarded £2.5 million to a variety of programmes and projects relating to gas/fossil fuel safety and carbon monoxide exposure.
Chris Bielby will be stepping down around the end of this year after 10 years as Chair but will remain a trustee, and we are now seeking to appoint a new Chair. The Board of Trustees of the Gas Safety Trust is responsible for the Governance of the Trust and is the ultimate decision-making body. Supported by Adrian McConnell as Head of Charitable Operations, it is responsible for overseeing the delivery of the Gas Safety Trust’s aims and objectives.
The Gas Safety Trust is committed to diversity and providing equal opportunities for all. Experience of operating at a strategic level in an organisation, and across a wide range of stakeholders, including government, and a broad knowledge of gas/fossil fuel safety and specifically CO risks would be an advantage.
The deadline for applying is Friday 27 November 2020.
The CO Portal is the definitive place to find information, updates and learning from our members’ research into carbon monoxide (CO). It brings together the experience in the UK with the developments around the world to help reduce incidences of CO poisoning. The CO Portal has three sections:
- CO Documents, which holds a variety of standards, legislation, academic resources, and data and reports that have been funded by GST.
- Downstream Incident Data is a database of reported casualties of CO since 1996. It has been kindly provided by the HSE, British Gas and the Gas Safe Register.
- Other Data provides a list of links to other data sets, tools and websites related to CO.
