Entries close soon for ESF Safety Innovation Award

Electrical Safety First’s Safety Innovation Award is now open, with the closing date for entries on Friday 30 August.

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 September and the selected finalists will make a presentation to judges at a London venue in October, with the winners being announced at Electrical Safety First’s annual product safety conference, on Thursday 28 November.

“We wanted to encourage companies who are putting safety at the heart of their product development process,” explains Martyn Allen, Technical Director of the Charity. “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.”
