Industry marks World Plumbing Day

World Plumbing Day is celebrated on 11 March each year as a means of promoting the important role played by the plumbing industry throughout the world.

SNIPEF president Fraser Lawrence said: “In the UK it is legally possible for anyone to practise as a plumber whether or not they have been trained or hold any qualifications and television programmes regularly publicise the activities of so called ‘rogue traders’, many of which are in the plumbing business.

“Although the numbers may not be on the scale of those in developing world, many in the UK have become seriously ill as a consequence of plumbing work which has not been undertaken competently and professionally”.

Mr Lawrence added: “On World Plumbing Day, 11 March 2013, please take a moment to think about the critical role played by SNIPEF, its members and others aiming to promote excellence in the plumbing industry and consider what life might be like if we did not enjoy access to the professional plumbing facilities which are widely available to us”.
