NAPIT campaigns for a better industry

Published:  27 May, 2015

NAPIT has launched a campaign to promote the interests of registered tradespeople across the UK.

The new campaign seeks to address some of the most pressing issues faced by NAPIT members and the wider industry today, by proposing simple solutions to government and influential organisations in the building services sector that practically align with the current economic and political climate.

NAPIT hopes the campaign will offer a unique insight into the way big policy decisions affect the lives of hardworking tradespeople across the country.  

NAPIT Trade Association chairman Frank Bertie said: “From proposing a nationwide solution that would allow registered electricians to safely remove service cut-out fuses to offering new policy ideas to stabilise the Green Deal supply chain, NAPIT is committed to tackling the key issues that directly affect the working lives of our members, head on.”

“Together we are stronger, and we are using that strength to make a positive impact on safety, stability and job creation. We’re taking a stand to push the priorities of the trades we represent higher up the political agenda by echoing the voice of our members on a national level.”

The NAPIT campaigns team will be promoting these pioneering proposals to key ministers and interested organisations over the coming months. The project will put the day-to-day concerns of registered tradespeople at the heart of pragmatic policy making.

To support the campaign, a set of infographics have been produced, covering: Electrical Safety in the Private Rented Sector, Building Regulations Enforcement (Part P), Service Cut-Out Fuse Removal for Safe Working, the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) and Feed in Tariff (FiT), Green Deal and Energy Company Obligation (ECO).
