Safety Seymour – on a mission to help you stay safe from carbon monoxide

Safety Seymour is a fun and colourful character who has an important message to share about gas safety in the home, and the dangers of Carbon Monoxide (or CO) poisoning in particular.

Developed by Cadent, the largest gas distribution network in the UK, the Safety Seymour sessions are usually presented in schools by trained arts workers.

At Northern Gas Networks we thought that Safety Seymour was so great that we have now introduced it to schools in our North of England region. Our trained Customer Care Officers present the session free to Year 2 and Year 3 classes. There is also a new website at packed with fun activities to support learning.

More information


We offer Seymour visits to your school and it is totally free. The half-day session is facilitated by trained arts workers and focuses on educating children in a fun and engaging way on the dangers of carbon monoxide, what the symptoms are and also how to stay safe.

We’ve also put together an informative pack for schools to help teachers deliver the messages to children themselves.

CO Safety competition

We’ve partnered with the UKs gas distribution networks to look for young artists to help us spread the word on the dangers of carbon monoxide (CO), the silent killer.

We are looking for entries from children aged between 5 and 11 in any form of media that are informative and accurate in warning of the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning.
