Electrical Safety Register. Great news for the industry!

Posted by Carl Bennett on 19th November 2012

The Electrical Safety Register is finally here. It is a voluntary licensing system for electricians and a first step in the right direction.

At last the electrical industry is starting to get itself organised and probably not before time we hear you say, considering all the recent discussions on various forums and talk boards. 

A licensed system for electricians along the lines of what Gas safe is for gas engineers is something we have supported and in fact championed. The idea seems to carry favour with many Sparkies with whom we talk. An electrical safety register is a licencing system in all but name and is voluntary, which may not be what everyone wants but is certainly better than what we have at the moment.

Of course during times of austerity good businesses get better and focus on the important issues that concern them and this appears to be what has happened with the electrical industry. Something positive is being done and must be welcomed.  With big announcements from the big 3 in the industry the NICEIC, ELECSA and the ECA  this morning regarding their Electrical safety register, essentially a voluntary rather than mandatory licensing system is a first step but one that would be welcomed I assume, given the poll vote on the ECA Linked in discussion group forum.

As far as Tradeskills4U is concerned, anything that helps hard working men and women support their families is good with us and this initiative looks to do just that.
