Installer community vital for UK success, says CIPHE
The CIPHE has launched its manifesto to stakeholders with a pitch that the industry is vital to UK success.
The formal launch in March came with a call for Parliament and Whitehall departments to work with the institute to meet environment and safety objectives. They were offered “an open door for Government to engage with the industry”.
Moving to campaign mode followed months of reviews and meetings with CIPHE members and IAs to shape objectives and agreeing key messages before it was signed off.
Covering major issues such as the safety, health and welfare of the public, the environment, education, and regulation and licensing; the CIPHE’s manifesto sits the plumbing and heating industry in the centre of many key areas of Government policy.
The team will now engage with ministers, advisers, Whitehall officials and industry leaders to take the manifesto forward.
You can help by sharing the manifesto with contacts, your local MP and council leader. This will help the Institute reach decision-makers and industry influencers faster.
Kevin Wellman, CIPHE CEO, said, “The last 12 months has only served to highlight the critical role played by members of the plumbing and heating industry. In fact, as many areas of the economy were closed or at least drastically reduced, it was tradespeople who continued to provide vital public services and prioritise the health, safety and wellbeing of others.
He added: “Now is the time for our collective expertise to be sought and acted upon.”
