Heating & Plumbing Engineers – you’re Eligible For COVID-19 Testing
Posted by: J L on: 19 May 2020
Over the coming weeks the UK economy needs to safely be kick started, and that means getting people that can, back to work.
As an essential service, heating and plumbing engineers with symptoms of corona virus (and their households) are eligible for COVID 19 testing.
Frontline work to repair and maintain the supply of heating and hot water to UK homes, schools, hospitals and businesses, has been allowed to continue during lockdown, and in general, the building services sector will be one of first industries to return to business.
Often solitary and key to keeping Britain moving, social distancing and appropriate hygiene measures can be fairly easily implemented in our sector.

At the time of writing, the UK is slowly coming out of lockdown, with the government advice to go back to work if safe to do so.
Plumbing and heating installers can work, but safety for yourself and the customer is the priority:
Gas installers must keep their Gas ACS up to date where possible. We’re still offering Gas ACS Re-assessment and refresher training, with some elements now available online.
The gas ACS re-assessment is mainly paper based so it’s easy to keep you safe in our classrooms, sticking to government social distancing guidelines.
If you need refresher training, we’re doing this bit ‘virtually’. You get the support and guidance of one of our trainers but from the comfort of your own home.
