Electrical Safety First


The Electrical Safety First is a registered charity committed to reducing deaths and injuries caused by electrical accidents. The organisation is supported by all sectors of the electrical industry as well as local and central government.

The Charity, through its activities and partnerships, aims to ensure that consumers’ needs are recognised and that issues of safety are given the appropriate priority. This includes:

  • promoting changes in attitude and behaviour by raising consumer awareness of the issues and risks;
  • influencing other stakeholders to consider consumer needs;
  • campaigning in areas of risk; and
  • promoting best practice across industry.

As well as running general awareness campaigns and events to help educate consumers about the dangers of electricity, the Charity also runs campaigns and initiatives covering specific areas of risk such as product safety, fire safety and child safety.
