The Electrical Safety Roundtable launches new website and resources

The portal makes available a new framework of home safety checklists and certificates for the first time. They provide a means for landlords to keep track of the important steps necessary to meet their duty of care and comply with key legal obligations while giving tenants the chance to make informed choices and rent with confidence.

Commenting on these milestones, chairman Chris Bielby said: ‘Ensuring consumers are aware of the risks posed by hazards in the home and understand the steps they can take to reduce those risks are the most important challenges faced by our industry today. We have expanded the range of issues the roundtable considers, creating safety guidance that covers electrical safety alongside other important household checks.’

The Electrical Safety Roundtable has also recently made the case for electrical product labelling. Currently, specialist electrical equipment such as fuse boards, can be purchased over the counter without warnings or guidance regarding safe installation.  A voluntary agreement has recently been reached by a number of retailers, through the British Retail Consortium, to label electrical goods clearly with standardised wording.
