Following the GGF’s ‘first to market’ launch of the Safe Guide for Homeowners during the COVID-19 Crisis, the Federation has now launched a complementary Safe Guide for Home Improvement Companies.
The new Guide has integrated the most recent and relevant Government Guidance and includes direct links to the Government Risk Assessment Toolkit.
Although several parts of the most recent Government Guidance issued were queried by GGF Members, the GGF, on behalf of its Members, sought and gained clarification from the Department of Business & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) before publishing this new Guide.
This new publication has been produced in collaboration with a diverse cross-section of Members, GGF Staff and Government officials, to ensure this Safe Guide is the most comprehensive and authoritative in the industry.
James Lee, Director of External Affairs (pictured below), commented: “The GGF focus has always been on delivering high quality information that can be trusted by the industry and consumers alike. Both Safe Guides reflect the expected GGF high standards.”
The new GGF Safe Guide for Home Improvement Companies during the COVID-19 Crisis is available to all companies in the industry, for free download and viewing via the GGF website.
