BPI Certified Repairman Saves Woman's Life by Recognizing Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

BPI recognizes the heroic efforts of BPI Certified Building Analyst Carl Harvey, who saved the life of a homeowner when he detected a potentially lethal Carbon Monoxide leak while replacing a hot water heater. Harvey recognized CO deposits in the piping, and immediately urged the homeowner, who had been feeling sick for weeks, to consult a doctor. The doctor confirmed CO poisoning in the blood at near lethal levels, and the homeowner received immediate treatment. Carl commented that he “was doing what he was trained to do.” The now healthy homeowner alerted local American Red Cross chapter of what had happened, and nominated Carl for the Industrial Safety Award – which he then received at the annual American Red Cross Real Heroes Breakfast in Syracuse, New York.
