Topic: Is Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Truck Drivers?
Virginia Chomo, a volunteer of Trucker Charity,
will be our guest to discuss her discovery that there exist no carbon monoxide detectors for semi-trucks, despite standards that require the device in homes, boats, RV's and airplanes.
Truckers live in their trucks; most of them must idle for comfort control or have an Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) that reduces emissions. Either way, emissions are still an effect to the occupants.
Thanks to Virginia's work, the Underwriters Laboratories (UL) is now developing and setting standards for Smoke and Carbon Monoxide detectors with truckers in mind.
Join us as she shares her findings and her work with manufacturers regarding the special needs of these detectors as related to semis.
