A PLUMBER in York has become one of the first members of a new association created to reduce the risk of water-borne illnesses.

Alwyn Glover, based in Little Hallfield Road, is one of the first members of the Legionella Risk Assessment and Disinfection Scheme run by the Association of Plumbing and Heating Contractors (APHC).

The company says it has joined the association in a bid to benefit from being associated with a trade body that represents quality and professionalism and identifies it a reputable trader.

Andy Holmes, of Alwyn Glover Ltd said: "Being part of a recognised association provides us with increased credibility and also offers us industry support and advice.

"We pride ourselves on offering a high standard of workmanship and service and hope this accreditation will offer new customers confidence that we are experts in our sector and peace of mind."

Membership of the scheme demonstrates that the trader compiles with the Health and Safety Executive’s Approved Code of Practice and plays an important role in reducing outbreaks of Legionnaires disease, which is a potentially fatal form of pneumonia to which everyone is susceptible to infection.
