About Us


We’re Electrical Safety First, the UK’s leading charity on electrical safety. We want to make sure that everyone in the UK can use electricity safely, and regularly work with the media, government, businesses and electrical industry to spread our messages far and wide.

We campaign on issues that include product recall and registration, electrical DIY, the importance of using registered electricians and counterfeit electrical goods. As well as raising awareness with the public, we also work with politicians to ensure that the Government is doing all it can to keep people safe from electrical accidents.

Take a look at some of our proudest moments!

It can be difficult to reach younger audiences through traditional media so we use engaging digital content to target them. If you would be interested in working with us on a campaign, please contact our Communications Director, Emma Drackford, at emma.drackford@electricalsafetyfirst.org.uk
