Most businesses are required by law to ensure that their premises remain pest free, and the easiest and most effective way to do this is to have regular Pest Control Contract.
Why Have A Contract?
Peace of Mind – A good contract from a reliable contractor should ensure that your premises, your staff and your business will be safe from pests and safe from any bad publicity and prosecutions that can occur if pests are found.
The Law – The Prevention of Damage by Pests Act 1949 requires property owners to ensure that their premises remain free of pests.
The Food Safety Act & Food Hygiene Regulations include further legislation governing business premise that handle food. Closure of businesses, fines of up to £20,000.00 and prison sentences of up to 6 months can be imposed for breaching these rules.
Currently some of the legislation governing food standards is agreed in the European Union, and a good contractor will be aware of any changes or implications relating to the rules governing pest control legislation.
The local Environmental Health Department and your customers will appreciate knowing that your company is proactive and responsible with regard to pest control, and in some cases clients might even insist on proof that a contract is in place.
