THE ELECTRICAL SAFETY REGISTER IS LAUNCHED

The Electrical Safety Council (ESC) and Electrical Contractors’ Association (ECA) have announced the launch of the Electrical Safety Register – a joint venture between the two organisations that will serve as a one-stop-shop for anyone looking for the services of a competent electrical contractor.

The Register, which features both domestic and commercial contractors, also brings together the well known NICEIC, ELECSA and ECA certification schemes, whose contractors are currently responsible for 80% of all domestic electrical work. 

Over 33,000 contractors are registered with these schemes, which cover the whole of the UK, including Northern Ireland. As all contractors will have been assessed against rigorous technical standards, the online register offers protection to both householders and commercial consumers alike.  

Until now, the ESC’s main source of funding has been its trading subsidiary the Ascertiva Group, which incorporates NICEIC.  The new partnership will increase this funding, and so enable the Charity to reach more people with campaigns that aim to increase awareness of the dangers of electricity and its grant schemes that support home improvement projects run by funded partners such as Fire and Rescue Services and Trading Standards.

“With this partnership, the benefits to the consumer and electrician are significant,” comments Charles Tanswell, chair of the ESC. “In particular, for the consumer it means more can be done to raise awareness of the benefits of using registered electricians and we’re delighted that this partnership ensures solid industry support for the charity and its work.”   

Paul McNaughton, President of the ECA comments: “The Electrical Safety Register is the result of the key players in the electrical sector coming together to offer clarity and assurance to the consumer. We intend that the Register will become the definitive, trusted resource for anyone looking to employ a competent electrical contractor, whether in the domestic or commercial environments.”
