COVID-19 INFORMATION FOR CHIMNEY SWEEPS
RPS have put together this web page of information with regards to guidance on returning to work for sweeps, this can be used to help with promoting your business to customers and what you are doing to ensure their health is being considered when entering their property.
Obviously if you are a member of a chimney sweep association or trade organisation then they may already have set guidlines. This page will be updated as we progress with the lock down and so any other information that you think may be helpful to sweeps then we can add it to the web page, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
COVID-19 EXIT STRATEGY
Chimney Skills Training Ltd have put together a very good guide for appropriate control measures to be put in place to reduce the risk to an acceptable level against Coronavirus infection.
W.H.O. FREE ONLINE TRAINING
The World Health Organisation are offering a free Infection Prevention & Control for Coronavirus online training course. After you have completed this training you are issued with a training certificate, which is something to show customers and organistions that you have carried out some form of infection control course.
CARBON DATA CERTIFICATE APP
Using paper chimney sweep certifcates is now a risk of cross contamination and so using a digital chimney sweep certificate is the way forward we believe. Carbon Data are now offering their digital chimney sweep certificate free on Android devices and £0.49 per month on Apple devices for the next 3 months.
HSE - Your Mask Can Protect You
The Health & Safety Executive have a very good training presentation of how to wear Respiratory Protective Equipment correctly and explain the benefits of wearing RPE in the workplace and how to fit the mask correctly with a tight seal.
A safe antibacterial coronavirus disinfectant spray for your sweeping kit or surfaces.
