The Association of Electrical and Mechanical Trades (AEMT) is supporting its members with forums and advice during the COVID-19 outbreak. The organisation has released a concise COVID-19 guide that details essential information for businesses, as well as hosting a bi-weekly COVID-19 member forum to share key updates.

Thomas Marks, Secretary of the AEMT, said: “We have been in contact with many of our members during this challenging time. Some of the primary concerns include keeping staff healthy and safe, maintaining service with reduced staff, ensuring cashflow, processing information on company support and even webinar fatigue!"
“Consequently, we want to reiterate to our members that we are here to offer advice and support throughout the crisis. To help our members, we have consolidated all relevant information into our concise guide to COVID-19. We will continue to work with our members as the situation develops, as it is essential that we continue to share information.”
The AEMT has compiled a key worker letter to share with employees during the lockdown, supporting the continued work of AEMT service centres. Many provide critical repair and maintenance support to essential facilities that have stayed open throughout the crisis. A benchmarking survey was also conducted with members, measuring key statistics such as turnover, sick pay, repairs vs sales, in-house stock and productivity.
We will notify all of our members regarding the schedule of our bi-weekly COVID-19 forums,” Thomas explains. “Additionally, we will be distributing key information through social media and mailshots so all our members can stay up to date."
“For specific questions and further requests for information, we urge any of our members to contact us with their concerns.” You can contact the AEMT by visiting https://www.theaemt.com/contact, calling +44 (0)1904 674 899 or via email at email@example.com.
