The Professional Association of Self caterers UK and South West Councils have partnered with Devon and Somerset Trading Standards to release a free series of bite-size webinars and a toolkit to help operators of hot tubs deliver a safer and more enjoyable experience for their customers. The package has been designed with both experienced and new operators in mind and also with the aim of providing an introduction for staff at all levels tasked with operating and maintaining the equipment.

Here are the PASC UK Hot Tub Papers:

Joining PASC will give the professional self-caterer access to all that is happening regarding the taxation and regulatory landscape in which we work. A professional team will be lobbying on your behalf to try achieve a fairer balance of taxation and regulation for the professional self-catering sector. We have PR and lobbying partners to assist us in carrying out this role.
