Applications open for Safety Innovation Award

Electrical Safety First has just opened applications for its Safety Innovation Award, with the closing dates for entries being 27th April.

Building on the success of last year’s inaugural award, the Charity is inviting applications from businesses that have developed an innovative product – or a project – that has, or will, make a difference to improve consumer safety. Applications must include a detailed description of how the innovation operates, together with supporting evidence of how it will, or has, improved consumer safety.

Shortlisted applicants will be notified in May and the selected finalists will make a presentation to judges at a London venue in August, with the winners being announced at Electrical Safety First’s annual product safety conference, in November.

“We wanted to encourage companies who are putting safety at the heart of their product development process,” explains Phil Buckle, Chief Executive of Electrical Safety First.

“We believe that, just as our annual product safety conference has grown year-on-year, so will the impact of this award – and that both show that product safety is no longer a Cinderella issue.”
