We have prepared the attached Rethinking Electrical Contracting with Electrical Licence to Practice 2017 Progress Report for your interest and consideration. The SparkSafe Electrical Licence to Practice initiative has emerged from a lengthy consultative rethinking exercise by the local industry. Sub-economic tendering, slackness in the supply chain and negative outlook have driven the development and introduction of the first universal online Electrical Worker gatekeeping system in the UK.
The online gatekeeping system has been designed to connect the competency of employed and sub-contracted Electrical Workers by Licence type to specific construction projects. Each worker is assessed and provided with one of three Licence types based on accredited and industry approved qualifications, as well as relevant and up to date employment experience.
The system is well established and presently specified on circa one billion pounds worth of commercial and industrial public sector construction projects. We have designed the system to achieve the following outcomes.
We thank you in anticipation of you taking time to read the attached report. Please feel free to enquire with us should you require further information.
