ElectricSafe makes it easy to find a registered, competent electrician that you can trust to work safely in your home.
When it comes to fitting a new boiler or gas fire, most homeowners wouldn’t dream of doing the work themselves or hiring someone that may not meet key qualification requirements. But the same is not currently true in the electrical industry.
Electricity can be just as dangerous as gas and most householders are still unaware that electrical installations are governed by strict Building Regulations – under Part P (Electrical Safety).
Electrocution and electrical fires that result from poorly installed or improperly checked systems are still causing injury and fatalities.* A lack of proper understanding and awareness in this area means rogue traders and misguided DIY enthusiasts could be putting lives at risk.
ElectricSafe exists to tackle this problem head on, providing one recognisable, consumer facing register the general public can trust.
All electricians on the ElectricSafe Register meet strict qualification requirements, are regularly assessed, complying with robust inspection procedures, to ensure their on-going competence.
Look for the name you can trust: ElectricSafe
