Previously EEESafe’s CEO had worked for a Charity in the Reuse and Repair Sector for over 12 years.
He discovered many things that prevent some great reuse and repair organisations from doing a better job helping their own communities. Waste Prevention was and still is too costly, and doesn’t fully benefit the communities where waste arises.
In particular, Electrical Appliance Repairs had no 3rd Party Competent Persons independent scheme or standard to provide consumers with assurances they deserve. Many are left with household dangers due to incompetency and a distinct lack of the right depth of knowledge of how an Appliance works.
Whilst they are good practices, PAT Testing does not make an appliance safe to use and nor does Function Testing. If you don’t know what you’re looking for, then you’ll easily miss dangers that could cause serious accidents and fires.
Additionally, with no system to ensure Product Recalls were monitored on a 24/7 basis, we felt we had to take action. Product Recalls are a known Fire Risk and research shows that 80% of all recalls are unknown.
We love Reuse and Repair and because of the dangers in a lack of regulation and standards on Electrical Reuse, EEESafe was put in place.
So we’ve put together solutions to help all stakeholders. We are currently promoted by the UK Fire Service and the Insurance Sector and we talk with government on Social Justice, Waste Prevention and Climate change matters. We are even promoted in Local Authorities particularly through our National Appliance Safety Register, which is also available to households.
If you are a Charity, Landlord, Housing Association, Community Group or an Appliance Repair business then we invite you to work with us. We have many ways of helping you achieve your objectives and provide revenue streams during the process.
