Pest Controllers announced as Key Workers
22nd April 2020
If you are in the pest control industry and have been concerned about trading during the Covid-19 Pandemic, the good news is pest management has been confirmed by the UK government as an essential service.
George Eustice, Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) has confirmed that pest management is covered within the key worker list. The good news being that it is highly likely that those working within the pest management sector would be able to continue work should further lockdown procedures ensue.
This comes as a breakthrough for the industry, after lobbying local MP’s for official confirmation that Pest Management services are deemed essential.
As with all trades and work within the current pandemic, it is as important as ever to ensure yourselves and any staff are working safely and following all relevant government guidelines regarding social distancing.
