New Chairman for Electrical Safety Council

Bill Wright MA C.Eng. FIET and Corporate Energy and Environment Manager for the John Lewis Partnership has taken over the reigns as Chairman of the Electrical Safety Council for a two year tenure, effective from 1 April 2009.

As Chairman, Bill heads the Electrical Safety Board, which has responsibility for setting the overall strategic direction of the Electrical Safety Council, and the group’s performance.

Commenting on plans for the Electrical Safety Council, Bill said: “This is an exciting time for the charity which aims to strengthen its position as the country’s leading independent body in the field of electrical safety. The next few years will see the charity continue to evolve, expanding its work in the field of product safety and looking at other areas where it can have real impact on improving safety standards for consumers and industry.”

Bill has been a member of the charity’s Board of Trustees since 2001 as the nominated representative of the Institution of Engineering Technology (IET), and has held the office of deputy chairman for the past two years. He sits on a number of the charity’s committees and has been involved with several IET and BSI panels including the Joint Wiring Regulations Panel.

Bill takes over from David Dosset, who has held the office of Chairman since 2007 and continues to have an active role on the Board.
