FENSA Covid-19 guidelines installers
New set of FENSA COVID-19 guides helps installers plan for a safe return to work in people's homes.

Our colleagues in FENSA have recently released a detailed set of industry-specific guidance documents to help installers adapt to the current coronavirus situation as they plan a return to working in people’s homes:

  • Practical safety precautions when installing windows and doors during the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Guidance on completing a risk assessment (with RA template)
  • Homeowner guide: Having windows or doors installed during the COVID-19 outbreak

The result of a considerable amount of work and research – and benefitting from a great deal of field experience – the guides are an excellent aide to any installation firm looking to safely resume working within Government guidelines.

(For the latest official guidance see gov.uk/coronavirus)  

These documents are free to access for any existing FENSA Approved Installer. Simply visit the FENSA Installer Portal Installer Portal to download the guides.
