Ian Andrew is chief executive of the British Pest Control Association (BPCA) and is also on the board of the Confederation of European Pest Management Associations (CEPA). Ian is therefore one of the key leaders in our industry’s associations.
Ian appreciates that pest managers have doubts and fears regarding the current risks concerning the Covid-19 situation and details how pest control managers can plan to overcome them. BPCA has recently launched a set of guidelines for those working in pest control which we discuss together.
Exclusively, Ian informs us about the new survey BPCA has just done with its members. Very insightful and shocking, this reveals that 44% of respondents claimed they were, or had, suffered from mental health issues. In the interview we discuss why this is and what people can do to overcome this problem. Ian has some positive thoughts on this topic and his suggestions and ideas should be heard.
Ian also discusses what the UK pest control sector might look like post Covid-19. A very likely result is surely the increased use of all sorts of „digital“ items of communication. Ian is a strong supporter of these, having introduced with his team webinars, video meetings, digital events, info hubs on the website, guidelines and much more – actually so much good and profound information that we would consider the BPCA as very go-ahead and hence maybe the best association for communications in the world.
