An Electrician's view - it's all about money!
« on: May 01, 2019, 08:31:26 am »
I was sent this by a professional electrician who is as passionate as I am about poor quality and doing something about it. I have reproduced it below so anyone considering buying a new home, the government is so keen for them to own,  is fully aware.
Obviously this post about electrical test failures from  2013 hasn't!

The electrical industry is completely ruined by the self proclaimed industry leaders.
They are Dame Judith Hackitt, bankers, accountants, CEO’s from Marks and Spencer’s etc and have no respect for our trade or anyone.

All they care about is money.

Together they form the EAS committee and advise the government and industry on standards and entry levels. In short, they have created their perfect cash cow, which is our perfect storm.

They own training companies wirh cheap fast low level training in, telling everyone we have a skills shortage, when in fact the industry is saturated.

Multiple choice questions and candidates are taught to pass the exam, not learn a trade.

Straight into yearly membership, claiming they protect the homeowner and throw out worthless insurance backed warranties that no-one can claim on.

We’ve all tried so many times to help homeowners get the help they deserve and they just ignore us.

Standards are so bad, that we have had a massive increase in electrical fires, where some firefighters even lost their lives!

Rather than raise standards, the manufacturers who they are in bed with, invent products to help prevent fires.

You couldn’t make this stuff up. The gas industry suffers similar problems.

New homes are the worst and everyone in the trade knows it.
What you need to do is contact tradespeople and get them to give evidence and rally behind you.
