Policies and Research

At Electrical Safety First, we maintain a robust evidence base to support our campaigning activities.

We work closely with the respective UK and devolved governments to improve electrical safety standards in UK homes. This includes campaigning on issues such as housing, online sales of electrical goods, protecting vulnerable people, preventing fires and considering the future use of electricity in the home.

As well as our annual consumer survey that looks at general attitudes towards electrical safety, we carry out research on specific areas of interest, including product safety and standards in the private rented sector.
