Guidance on test and trace procedures for pest management companies

BPCA has released a free guidance document for pest professionals considering implementing a test and trace procedure during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Guidance on test and trace procedures for pest management companies by BPCA Covid 19 guidance

With the easing of social and economic lockdown measures, the UK Government currently advises that many sectors including hospitality, leisure, close contact services should have a test and trace system in place.

Currently, there is no requirement for trades to have a test and trace system. However, BPCA believes it’s good practice to implement a procedure to help stop the spread of the virus and protect your staff and clients.

The document covers help and advice for all pest management companies, including sections on:

  1. Monitor staff
  2. Maintaining records
  3. Testing staff for Covid-19
  4. Disclosing information to track and trace
  5. Template: record of employee movements
  6. Further support for BPCA members.

As responsible citizens and business owners, we should all be doing our best to minimise the risk of spreading Covid-19 and prevent the NHS from being overwhelmed.

Ian Andrew, BPCA Chief Exec

AVAILABLE TO EVERYONE

This guidance has been made public, meaning members of the British Pest Control Association (BPCA) and non-members can access our support. We have chosen to release the guidance to everyone to help the whole public health pest management sector minimise the spread of Covid-19.
