Electricians Encouraged to Give Safety messages

Those in the electrical industry can play a big part in helping to get the message out about electrical safety measures to the public, say the Electrical Safety Council.

They have been campaigning heavily recently to increase awareness of electrical safety issues after research and reports found that there was a general blasé attitude to electrical safety among the public.

And with figures currently standing at 70 deaths and 350,000 serious injuries every year due to electrical accidents, it’s important that these safety messages reach their target audience.

ESC say that the simple message electrical contractors can convey is to always use registered electrical contractors, upgrade to a consumer unit with RCD and get electrics and any relevant appliances checked regularly.

They have also produced a number of documents to help electrical contractors get the message out, including leaflets and web banners.

Also, there are free packs available, which give additional electrical safety advice, for electrical contractors to hand out to their clients and homeowners. Each pack contains 25 Electrical Safety Council Leaflets which will be useful to hand out to clients and those in need of electrical safety advice.

To get your hands on a pack visit the ESC website.
