Shining the spotlight on safety innovation

Currently in its sixth year, the Safety Innovation Award from industry charity, Electrical Safety First, puts the spotlight on those individuals and businesses who put safety at the heart of their work, while incorporating sustainability and innovation.

The charity is inviting applications from businesses, community groups and individuals who have developed (or are developing) an innovative product – or a project – that can enhance consumer safety.

So do you have an innovative electrical project or product which improves (or seeks to improve) consumer safety, that you want to bring to a wide professional audience?

Entries for the award are now open, and the deadline for submissions is 31 August 2022. Applications at all stages of development, including design and concept, are welcome.

The winner 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 highly respected Technical Team – explaining everything you need to know to deliver your idea or get your product to market.

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 internationally recognised Annual Conference, which takes place each November, is attended by over 200 delegates, from throughout the electro-technical industry – and beyond.

This year, the event will be held in person once again at Church House, Westminster on 23 November 2022.

“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.”
