NICEIC and ELECSA’s live cinema event saw a broadcast on the new 18 th Edition wiring regulations beamed via satellite to 40 cinema screens simultaneously. It was the first time ever such an event had taken place in the sector with contractors<br /> from Aberdeen to Plymouth getting involved and many more in between. Several of the 40 cinema screens sold out in advance with Leeds, Sheffield, Birmingham, Southampton, Bristol and Leicester all recording more than 200 attendees at each location.</p> <p>NICEIC and ELECSA’s marketing Director, Mark Smith, commented: “The introduction of a new standard within the industry is an important time for every electrician “We wanted to do something unique, affordable and easily accessible to help contractors gain an improved insight into the forthcoming changes. “It was a genuine world first and I am delighted that contractors came along and got involved. We hope they enjoyed the experience of learning and developing their knowledge in this different format.”</p> <p>The 18 th Edition seminar was broadcast from the world famous Faraday Theatre, in The Royal Institution. Hosted by industry experts Darren Staniforth and Alan Wells the talk focused on the changes included in the new regulations and what it will mean for electricians in their day-to-day work.</p> <p>It also included a section on the history of electricity, and how Michael Faraday demonstrated his discoveries to the public way back in 1824. “We wanted to create a cinematic experience that was technical based and informative with a bit of fun also,” added Mark.</p> <p>“Since we were broadcasting from the iconic Faraday centre there was a natural link to provide viewers with some historical context about electricity, and the job contractors play in carrying on the work he started.”</p> <p>The seminar was hosted by BBC TV star Ore Oduba and featured some key insights from industry experts including; Mark Coles, head of technical regulations at the IET, Robin Earl from Dehn, Simon Rawlinson from Siemens and David Garrett from Electrium.</p> <p>The seminar went through all seven sections of the new book with discussions on the major changes in each section. This included discussions on the introduction of Arc Fault Detection Devices (AFDDs) and Surge Protection Devices (SPDs) which have been included as recommendations to improve safety within certain electrical installations.</p> <p>Mark added: “We wanted to try something new and on a grand scale, however, the most important part was that everyone got to see the same seminar and that we were able to communicate a single, consistent message to the industry, which will only increase electrical safety.</p> <p>“The live cinema event was just another example of NICEIC and ELECSA leading the way in the industry to promote electrical safety.”</p> <p>For more information about the 18 th edition, including a technical overview of the changes, visit 18edition.com</p> </div></div> </div> <div class="field field-node-field-news-categories field-entity-reference-type-taxonomy-term field-formatter-entity-reference-label field-name-field-news-categories field-type-entity-reference field-label-above"><h3 class="field__label">News Categories</h3><div class="field__items"><div class="field__item field__item--_8th-edition"> <span class="field__item-wrapper"><a href="/news-category/18th-edition" hreflang="en">18th edition</a></span> </div><div class="field__item field__item--niceic-live"> <span class="field__item-wrapper"><a href="/news-category/niceic-live" hreflang="en">NICEIC Live</a></span> </div></div> </div> <section class="field field-node--comment-node-news field-formatter-comment-default field-name-comment-node-news field-type-comment field-label-hidden display-mode-threaded comment-bundle-comment-node-news comment-wrapper"> <a name="comments"></a></section> Tue, 10 Jul 2018 13:58:41 +0000 gazza 8485 at https://www.mylocalelectrician.uk https://www.mylocalelectrician.uk/news/more-6000-electrical-contractors-witness-18th-edition-live-cinema-event#comments Buzz grows for live 18th Edition cinema experience https://www.mylocalelectrician.uk/news/buzz-grows-live-18th-edition-cinema-experience <span class="field field-name-title field-formatter-string field-type-string field-label-hidden">Buzz grows for live 18th Edition cinema experience</span> <div class="field field-node--field-image field-formatter-image field-name-field-image field-type-image field-label-hidden has-single"><figure class="field-type-image__figure image-count-1"><div class="field-type-image__item"> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/large/public/17946-Live-Cinema-FB-1200x628.jpg?itok=PkcCnXTe" width="480" height="251" alt="" typeof="foaf:Image" class="image-style-large" /> </div> </figure></div> <span class="field field-name-uid field-formatter-author field-type-entity-reference field-label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">gazza</span></span> <span class="field field-name-created field-formatter-timestamp field-type-created field-label-hidden">Tue, 06/19/2018 - 13:54</span> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field-node--body field-formatter-text-default field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden has-single"><div class="field__items"><div class="field__item"><p>Over 2,500 tickets already sold with just two weeks to go! There is now just two weeks to go until NICEIC and ELECSA’s 18th Edition Live Cinema broadcast. More than 2500 tickets have already been snapped up for the one-off event, which will be a world first for the electrical industry. Some cinema locations are already close to selling out with Bristol, Southampton and<br /> Nottingham currently leading the way.</p> <p>“The reaction so far has been brilliant,” commented NICEIC and ELECSA’s Marketing Director Mark Smith. “This is something totally new for our industry. It’s a new concept but contractors have embraced the idea and we can’t wait to get going. “It promises to be a chance for electricians and business owners to have a day out and learn about the changes with like-minded professionals in a relaxed environment.”</p> <p>On July 4th NICEIC and ELECSA will be transmitting a live talk on the 18th Edition which will be beamed via satellite to 40 cinema screens simultaneously. It is the first time such an event has ever taken place in the construction industry. The 18th Edition seminar will be broadcast from the world famous Faraday Theatre, in The Royal Institution. Hosted by industry experts Darren Staniforth and Alan Wells the talk will focus on the changes included in the new regulations and what it will mean for electricians in their day-to-day work.</p> <p>“When the 17th Edition was launched in 2008, a lot of industry myths emerged because multiple messages were communicated by different speakers. The advantage of broadcasting to all four corners of the UK on a single day is that we can communicate a single, consistent message to the industry,” commented Darren Staniforth.</p> <p>“We believe this will benefit the whole industry and increase safety standards as a result.” The live seminar and cinema event will take place from 9am on Wednesday, 4Th July. Tickets cost just £5 for the biggest electrical conference ever staged and can be booked online at a cinema close to you now by visiting www.18edition.com/cinema</p> </div></div> </div> <div class="field field-node-field-news-categories field-entity-reference-type-taxonomy-term field-formatter-entity-reference-label field-name-field-news-categories field-type-entity-reference field-label-above"><h3 class="field__label">News Categories</h3><div class="field__items"><div class="field__item field__item--_8th-edition"> <span class="field__item-wrapper"><a href="/news-category/18th-edition" hreflang="en">18th edition</a></span> </div></div> </div> <section class="field field-node--comment-node-news field-formatter-comment-default field-name-comment-node-news field-type-comment field-label-hidden display-mode-threaded comment-bundle-comment-node-news comment-wrapper"> <a name="comments"></a></section> Tue, 19 Jun 2018 12:54:03 +0000 gazza 8481 at https://www.mylocalelectrician.uk https://www.mylocalelectrician.uk/news/buzz-grows-live-18th-edition-cinema-experience#comments Quotatis Brings In Big Savings for Electricians with New Smart Savings Account https://www.mylocalelectrician.uk/news/quotatis-brings-big-savings-electricians-new-smart-savings-account <span class="field field-name-title field-formatter-string field-type-string field-label-hidden">Quotatis Brings In Big Savings for Electricians with New Smart Savings Account</span> <div class="field field-node--field-image field-formatter-image field-name-field-image field-type-image field-label-hidden has-single"><figure class="field-type-image__figure image-count-1"><div class="field-type-image__item"> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/large/public/perkboxing.jpg?itok=ubNQ5ltv" width="480" height="320" alt="" typeof="foaf:Image" class="image-style-large" /> </div> </figure></div> <span class="field field-name-uid field-formatter-author field-type-entity-reference field-label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/11346" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">erivers</span></span> <span class="field field-name-created field-formatter-timestamp field-type-created field-label-hidden">Wed, 06/13/2018 - 11:31</span> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field-node--body field-formatter-text-default field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden has-single"><div class="field__items"><div class="field__item"><p>Quotatis, Europe’s leading home improvement marketing service, have announced the launch of their new Smart Savings account.

Entitled ‘Ban the Bravado’, the campaign will look at some of the dangerous DIY electrical jobs people will take on around the home. Former footballer and TV star Dion Dublin will front the campaign which coincides with the May Bank Holiday weekend – when traditionally more DIY jobs are carried out around the home.</p> <p>Research carried out by NICEIC and ELECSA shows that men are particularly more prone to taking on this type of work, with around 61% saying they would have a go, despite having no prior experience – compared to just 8% of women. This blokes’ bravado attitude is also reflected in further research which shows that 89% admit they won’t ask others for help and 58% stating they can do everything themselves. Just over a third (36%) believe men should be self-sufficient and not need to call on others.</p> <p>Paul Collins, Communications Manager at NICEIC and ELECSA commented: “Male machismo often means men will try to tackle most things around the home to save face.</p> <p>“However, this can often lead to a DIY disaster whereby they not only put their own safety at risk but that of their family or loved ones too.</p> <p>“It is perhaps even more common these days as people have simple access to how to guides or DIY videos on the internet.</p> <p>“We want to put an end to the bravado and get men to admit there are times when it’s only right to call on the help of a professional.”</p> <p>Former Aston Villa and England star Dublin will be fronting the campaign on a series of radio interviews. He will be using his experience as a footballer to talk about macho attitudes. He will also use his own experiences as a property developer and presenter on TV show Homes under the Hammer to discuss what work should be carried out by registered tradespeople.</p> <p>He will be joined by NICEIC and ELECSA’s technical expert Darren Staniforth. A webpage has been set up at www.niceic.com/banthebravado to support the campaign. Visitors to the page will be able to find three short video clips looking at what people search for when it comes to carrying out electrical work in the home.</p> <p>Contractors are encouraged to share the films to show their support for the campaign. Additional material on the webpage also includes a case study of NICEIC registered contractor Kevin Tallis who was called out to fix a job that went wrong. Along with a gallery of images sent in by contractors of bodge jobs they have come across in their day to day work.</p> <p>“The message has to be clear – while it is all well and good giving something a lick of paint there are certain jobs left well alone.
