    UMbutho WaseMerika Womnqamlezo Obomvu ucacisa uthi

    Carbon Monoxide (CO) ayibonakali, yaye ngekhe ulive nevumba layo, futhi ayinambala. Ibakho xa kuvutha ixesha elide izinto ezifana nepetroli, iinkuni, amalahle, ezinye iigesi ezinyingozi neoyile. Nezixhobo zasendlini zokuzishushubeza zinokuyivelisa le gesi, kuquka iindawo ezinjengeziko, ihita esebenzisa amanzi nezinye iihita zasendlini, ingambulala umntu carbon monoxide xa ininzi endlini. Yintoni onokuyenza:

    • Mazibe pha phandle, kude neminyango, iifestile, nezinye iindawo enokungena icarbon monoxide.
    • Ukuvula iminyango okanye iifestile okanye ulayite ifeni, ukuyenzi ingagcwali apha endlini icarbon monoxide. Nangona carbon monoxide ungenakuyibona okanye uyinukise, ingakhawuleza ikuyobe yaye ikubulale. Nokuba usenokungavi msi unukayo, usenokuba sengozini yokurhaxwa yicarbon monoxide.

    • Mazisoloko zihlolwa iibhetri zezi alamu ukuba zisasebenza na, futhi zitshintshwe xa kufuneka njalo.
    • Ekhe yakhala le alamu, khawuleza uphume phandle okanye uvule ifestile okanye umnyango okuphumisa ngaphandle. Ungaze ungayihoyi le alam xa ikhala; iyabulala icarbon monoxide yaye yaye umele uphume uyokubethwa ngumoya. Biza abezonyango olukhawulezileyo ukuba bazokunceda ngoxa usami kuloo ndawo ubalekele kuyo.
