Thank you to Malcolm Duncan Super Rod Ltd and our industry panel – Gary Hayers EFIXX, John Lorimer, MIET, Aaron McDonald and Mark Allison for their input on how we can take steps to improve safety and protect lives.

The emotional impact of this video was profound, emphasising the urgent need for improved electrical safety awareness in our industry.

The second industry insight event examined the industry’s journey to NET Zero. It was great to hear first-hand from Mark Allison about his personal journey and transition to the renewables sector.
