Electrical Safety First is now accepting entries for its Safety Innovation Award, with the company looking for those who have an innovative electrical project or product which improves (or seeks to improve) consumer safety.
The award is specifically designed to put a spotlight on those individuals and businesses who put safety at the heart of their work, while incorporating sustainability and innovation. This year represents the sixth year the award has been given, with entries accepted up until August 31. Applications at all stages of development, including design and concept, are invited to enter.
The winner of the Safety Innovation Award will be announced at Electrical Safety First’s annual product safety conference, where they will have a platform to discuss their innovation with the audience. They will also be offered ongoing support via media coverage, tailored newsletters and, where applicable, a half day of coaching from Electrical Safety First’s Technical Team – explaining everything you need to know to deliver your idea or get your product to market.
Additionally, all short-listed applicants will also be offered a space in the conference networking area, where they can network and give demonstrations of their work.
Electrical Safety First’s annual product safety conference will take place this year at Church House, Westminster, on November 23. Over 200 delegates are expected to attend from the length and breadth of the electro-technical industry.
“During this period of uncertainty and rapid technological change, there is a huge opportunity for innovation and creativity in product safety”, explained Martyn Allen, Technical Director at Electrical Safety First.
“We want to hear from individuals and businesses of all sizes, as well as community groups. And we are not only interested in a market-ready product or project – we also want to hear from people who have a design or concept which, with some support, can make a significant contribution to improving consumers’ electrical safety.”
For those of you wanting to get in on awards season, don’t forget that the Electrical Review and Data Centre Review Excellence Awards are also still open to entries.
