Electrical Safety Council sets up Scottish office 12/11/08
 
Campaigning charity the Electrical Safety Council has set up a dedicated office for Scotland.

The charity was established in 2005 with the aim of reducing deaths and injuries caused by electrical accidents at home and work.

It provides guidance on the electrical safety of products, equipment and installations and promotes best practice among electrical installers.

Now the council has recruited Tony Maskens, previously a manager at the British Standards Institution, to spearhead consumer and industry campaigns for the charity north of the border.

Tony is based at the Walled Garden, near Edinburgh – also the headquarters for SELECT, the Scottish Electrical Trade Association.

"The Electrical Safety Council has a UK-wide remit to help reduce the approximately 8,000 house fires, as well as electric shocks, accidents and injuries that happen each year as a result of faulty electrical appliances or installations,” said director of charitable affairs Phil Buckle.
