About the Gas Safety Trust

The Gas Safety Trust, established in 2005 as a registered charitable body, has become the UK’s leading gas safety research charity with the key objectives of further improving gas/fossil fuel safety for the public and industry throughout the UK and reducing the incidents of death and serious injury from carbon monoxide (CO) exposure. The Trust does this through the funding of research and data collection relating to carbon monoxide poisoning.

We provide grant funding, advice and support to any organisation to carry out research and evidence gathering relating to gas safety. Our current projects look at (but are not limited to) the following areas:

  • The possible link between CO and neurological conditions
  • CO exposure risks to pregnant women and the foetus
  • CO in the leisure environment
  • CO emissions from solid fuels

Since 2013 we have awarded £1.5 million to a variety of programmes and projects relating to gas/fossil fuel safety and carbon monoxide.
