A Halifax company has described linking up with a leading trade body as a demonstration of its professional approach.
Halifax Pest Control Ltd has this week joined the British Pest Control Association – the biggest UK trade body representing organisations involved in the eradication of public health pests.
Managing Directors Phil Johnson & Joanne Cahill insist the move will deliver significant benefits to both the company and its customers in Halifax.
Phil said: “BPCA promotes the highest standards of professionalism within the industry and every business must prove its competence before membership is accepted.
“Joining the association therefore delivers an assurance, both to customers and ourselves that we’re meeting high standards in everything we do.
“It’s likely to provide us with new business opportunities along with a network of communications tools, while we’re also entitled to technical support, business guidance and help with documentation and legislation.
“It’s a win-win situation both for us and our clients and we’re delighted to be on board.”
Halifax Pest Control has been trading in Halifax for over 30 years and has recently established itself as a Ltd company further enhancing its professional standing in the local area.
Simon Forrester, chief executive of BPCA, said: “It makes good sense for any professional pest management company to join the leading trade association in the UK.
“We provide services and support that can be crucial to a company like Halifax Pest Control.”
“We promote best practice in an industry that can be complicated and play a major role in enhancing standards by creating guidelines, developing training programmes and exams, producing publications or research and running exhibitions and conferences.”
Every business keen to join BPCA must abide by strict Codes of Practice and prove they hold relevant liability insurances. They must also be measured against the European Standard for Pest Management Services, which acts as a benchmark of quality throughout Europe.
Every technician employed by member companies must also hold specific industryrecognised qualifications and take part in a Continuing Professional Development scheme such as BASIS PROMPT.
