Gen up on safe isolation requirements with APHC workshops

If you need to find out more about the new requirements for safe electrical isolation, the Association of Plumbing and Heating Contractors (APHC) and Travis Perkins will be hosting a series of workshops across England and Wales next month (March 2020).

The free workshops will update gas engineers on the forthcoming requirements on safe isolation, as well as looking at the skills gap for alternative heating technologies.

APHC CEO John Thompson says: “Gas engineers will learn how the heating market is already changing in terms of alternative heating technologies and how their knowledge and skills will have to develop to keep up with the industry.

“Plus attendees will learn about new legal requirements for the safe isolation of electrical products, with which employers and sole traders need to be able to demonstrate they are compliant.”

APHC will give an overview of what employers and sole traders need to do to comply with new requirements for safe electrical isolation, part of which requires employers and sole traders to demonstrate they have the required knowledge to work compliantly with the incoming standards. All attendees will receive a certificate to show they attended the APHC Safe Electrical Isolation Workshop.

Travis Perkins will provide a valuable insight into how the market is developing with regard to the sales of heat pumps and other alternative heat technologies as the industry develops to help the UK meet its zero-carbon target.

There will also be a technical overview on working compliantly with the Water Fittings Regulations and Bylaws.
