Electrical Safety Roundtable Makes Strides Toward Electrical Safety

This year has seen the Electrical Safety Roundtable (ESR) make great strides in campaigning to raise awareness of electrical safety across the UK and seeking the introduction of mandatory electrical safety checks in the private rented sector.

Across the country, homeowners use rating websites to find electricians in their local area, yet are often not provided with information about their qualifications and competency.

Moving forward, the Roundtable is looking to work with rating websites in an effort to provide consumers with more guidance and information on the installers listed on their websites.

With these changes, the Roundtable is hopeful homeowners will be able to make informed decisions about the tradespeople they employ. To tie in with this, it has also been actively engaging with consumer facing websites in a bid to make the information available on electrical safety consistent and further emphasise the importance of using competent electrical installers.

Improving electrical safety standards in the private rented sector is also a key campaigning focus for the Roundtable, who are currently promoting the introduction of Electrical Installation Condition Reports (EICRs) to be completed at least every 5 years within the sector.
