It shows our dedication to strengthening CORGI’s electrical safety division and with Chris’ years of experience and dedication to the job in hand, he was the perfect choice to spearhead the electrical safety team.’
Chris holds an extensive portfolio of electrical qualifications. His wealth of knowledge and expertise in electrical safety and compliance sees him very well placed to support the needs of housing associations and local authorities with regards to safe and compliant electrical management processes.
