The Institute of Kitchen, Bedroom and Bathroom Installers (iKBBI) has partnered with NICEIC and ELECSA to promote consumer safety within the KBB installation market.
Assessment and certification bodies NICEIC and ELECSA represent more than 37,000 registered enterprises and promote safety, integrity and technical excellence in the electrical contracting industry.
Paul Collins, technical services manager at NICEIC and ELECSA, said: “We are pleased to be working alongside the iKBBI to look at ways that NICEIC and ELCESA can support the iKBBI and help achieve its aims. Many NICEIC, ELECSA and iKBBI registrants will already be undertaking work in the kitchens, bedrooms and the bathroom sectors, so it makes sense to come together and look at ways that we can support installers and promote consumer safety to ensure that work is completed to a high standard by competent installers.
“NICEIC and ELECSA are both committed to improving safety within the home and, by working with other industry partners, we can share experiences on a range of initiatives, such as training, complaints and recommended standards, to improve safety for consumers looking to employ competent and reliable installers.”
The iKBBI already works with a range of partners across the consumer and retail sectors.
iKBBI chief executive Damian Walters (pictured) commented: “The safety of our members and their customers is of paramount importance to our organisation and something we are passionate about. Our latest strategic partnership with NICEIC and ELECSA is another important milestone and a relationship we are incredibly proud of.
“Our members can operate in potentially dangerous environments on a daily basis, often working with a combination of gas, electricity and water. It therefore makes perfect sense to partner with those whose specialist subject is safety in the home.”
