NAPIT Trade Association Release Guidance on Returning to Work Safely

NAPIT Trade Association have created detailed guidance for tradespeople, offering support and direction for a safe return to work in the building services industries.

During the nationwide COVID-19 pandemic, NAPIT have been delivering regular updates to members to ensure they are up to date with the latest industry news and COVID-19 developments. Moving forward, NAPIT wanted to be able to provide tradespeople with some guidance that would help relieve the stresses of returning back to ‘normal working life’, whilst making sure they have the most accurate advice to hand to do so safely.

NAPIT’s website now contains the newly published ‘Working During COVID-19 – NAPIT Guidance Document’. The 19-page document includes details on carrying out work in people’s homes safely, deciding when to return to work, contracts and insurance, and general COVID-19 safety information. It also includes specific guidance for tradespeople in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland who are following slightly different restrictions to England.

Frank Bertie, NAPIT’s Chief Technical Officer and Trade Association Charmain commented:"The safety of NAPIT members, others working in the industry and consumers is paramount right now. COVID-19 still poses a risk to us all, particularly the vulnerable in our society so the aim of this guidance is to help settle any confusion tradespeople may have when returning back to work in these unprecedented times, and help them to provide confidence to their consumers that they are following due process."
