Chimney Safety Group

Chimney Safety Group Formed

Chimney Safety GroupOrganisations responsible for the safety and maintenance of chimneys and flues have come together to form a Chimney Safety Group to promote and offer solutions to chimney related problems in the UK.

HETAS (Heating Equipment Testing & Approvals Scheme) is joining forces with APICS (Association of Professional and Independent Chimney Sweeps), The National Association of Chimney Sweeps (NACS) and The Guild of Master Chimney Sweeps to influence legislation, organisations, government departments and standards committees.

The group will draw on the strengths of the independent organisations and will meet to deal with common safety concerns and support awareness initiatives, such as Chimney Safety Week. The unique access of chimney sweeps will be used to influence consumer safety and awareness.

The partnership of equals creates a stronger voice for educating the UK public on chimney and flue issues, with the core aim of reducing air pollution and chimney-related accidents.
