NAPIT supports new Industry initiative to enhance electrical safety

In response to a lack of data on the level of unsafe, non-compliant and dangerous electrical work uncovered in home across Great Britain, the Electrical Safety Roundtable and Trustmark have teamed up to create a tool for homeowners, tenants, and electricians to use to report these instances. Taking inspiration from the Health and Safety Executives tool for reporting of injuries, diseased and dangerous occurrences (RIDDOR) and the tool for Collaborative Reporting for Safer Structures (CROSS), the aim of the tool is to quantify and help to reduce the level of unsafe and non- compliant electrical work in homes across Great Britain.

The Electrical Safety Roundtable was founded on a mission to improve electrical safety within the home. TrustMark provides a mark of Government Endorsed Quality to tradespeople who undertake work in and around people’s homes.

The reporting tool has been widely supported by participants of the Electrical Safety Roundtable and we at NAPIT support this initiative. The straightforward and simple forms are quick and easy to complete, and we encourage anybody who comes across unsafe or dangerous electrical installations to use it to help enhance electrical safety standards.

Commenting on the new Industry initiative, Mike Andrews, CEO of NAPIT said: "As long-standing participants of the Electrical Safety Roundtable, we are delighted to support their latest campaign to enhance electrical safety standards in homes. Whilst much progress has been made over the last decade to improve electrical safety, there is always more that can be done. The data collated through this online reporting tool will no doubt support future initiatives to enhance electrical safety standards and we are encouraging our 16,500+ members to use this tool to record unsafe and non-compliant electrical work which they find in homes to help gather a strong evidence base of the level of risk."

Commenting on the launch Simon Ayers, CEO TrustMark said, "This is a really important initiative which will help to identify areas of electrical safety risk in homes across Great Britain. Having this data provides the opportunity to improve the standard and quality of electrical installation work where it’s needed, and help to tackle key areas of skills, knowledge and training."

Commenting on the tool, Chris Pack, Chair of the Electrical Safety Roundtable in the Home said: "It’s great to see this initiative reach fruition. As an organisation it is our mission to enhance electrical safety and the results from this tool will help us understand the major areas of electrical risk in homes and provide quantifiable data on the level of risk posed by unsafe and non-compliant electrical installations. We are looking forward to reviewing and anaylsing the data over the coming months and using that information to maximise our impact."

Alongside the reporting tool, a new webpage on the Electrical Safety Roundtable website has been developed to provide consumers with up-to-date guidance on the steps they can take to seek rectification of unsafe or non-compliant electrical work.

It is hoped that the data gathered through this reporting tool will be used to influence government thinking and assist with policy discussions, as well as inform industry initiatives and ultimately electrical safety standards throughout Great Britain.
