Sweep Safe Signs Up
For a number of years HETAS has recognised three chimney sweeping associations as a route for chimney sweeps to become HETAS Approved. In June we formally welcomed a fourth association as Sweep Safe signs up with HETAS.
HETAS has a long standing relationship with three chimney sweep associations, APICS, Guild of Master Chimney Sweeps and National Association of Chimney Sweeps. Having worked with these associations we have verified their association’s processes from assessment and induction through to terms and conditions, enabling their members to become HETAS Approved Chimney Sweeps. In June HETAS welcomed a fourth association, Sweep Safe.
Sweep Safe was conceived in April 2018 as a new type of chimney sweep association for the UK and Ireland. Sweep Safe works to build a recognisable consumer brand, a powerful identity (Logo, name, colours and presence) in the market place and ensure their certified chimney sweeps are the prime beneficiary from this brand power. The association is highly digital and marketing driven, both to promote its members to consumers and promote itself in the industry. Sweep Safe requires prior experience working in the industry before acceptance of membership. For more information on Sweep Safe visit www.hetas.co.uk/sweep-safe or visit the Sweep Safe website.
HETAS offer the H003 training course or the H009 training course, and attending one these courses is a pre-requisite towards registration, but not the only criteria. If you wish to become a HETAS Approved Chimney Sweep you must apply to us as a registered member of one of our nominated trade associations. Click here to find out more.
