CIPHE Safe working practices

Safe working practices Covid-19 Working Practices

The CIPHE has produced resources on safe working practices for members of the plumbing and heating industry as they get back to work following the Covid-19 lockdown. This includes looking at recommended behaviours, approach towards personal protective equipment and considerations when working in domestic properties.




Risk assessment 

We have also created a template for a Risk Assessment for working during the Covid-19 pandemic. This is intended to be expanded upon by a user to incorporate their own identified risks and can be expanded to include other matters requiring assessment of risk such as highlighted in the editable Word Document available below:

BEAMA, CIPHE, CORGI, HHIC and the NHIC have all come together to support this safe working practice animation to help communicate that by working together safely, the necessary business of the plumbing and heating industry can be restarted and consumer confidence can be rebuilt.
