Home Technology Integration – Competence, Building Safety and Raising the Bar
Andy Reakes – Electrotechnical Certification Scheme (ECS)
With the Building Safety Act now in force and the launch of the Building Safety Regulator later this year, there is a huge amount of work and focus on the skills, knowledge and experience of individuals working in people’s homes. In the AV sector, organisations are collaborating on how to raise the bar, improve safety, and enhance recognition of contractors that design, manufacture and integrate technology. We will take a look through what is likely to change and why you should take pride to show off your skills, training and experience in an industry which is better connecting families in the home.
