Damian Walters, CEO of the British Institute of KBB Installation (BiKBBI), has urged the industry to approach the relaxation of Coronavirus restrictions “with extreme caution” as England prepares for changes to safety regulations on 19th July.
Speaking to the BBC, Walters, pictured, urged tradespeople in particular not to fall foul of the changes next week, saying “this pandemic is not over”. He added: “We’re all keen to banish COVID to the history books, but we’ll only be able to achieve this if we’re sensible about the next few weeks and months.”
Updated Government advice to tradespeople as to how they may operate safely as the measures are relaxed after 19th July are to be published over the coming days. In preparation, the BiKBBI has published updated advice to tradespeople on its website, including supporting the continued wearing of face masks when working with others in a confined space.
BiKBBI said that it will continue to monitor changes in all UK countries and provide updated advice to the industry.
