The Electrotechnical Certification Scheme (ECS) has appointed Phil Wilbraham, formerly of Heathrow Airport Limited, as the new Chair of its Steering Committee. Mr Wilbraham replaces Newell McGuiness, who took on the role of Chair in 2018.
The ECS Steering Committee sets the strategic direction, maintains and develops the training, qualification and occupational competence standards for individual certification across a range of disciplines.
Representatives on the committee come from a range of organisations spanning the entire electrotechnical industry, including contractors and electricians together with representatives from Unite, ECA, SELECT, IET, Electrical Safety First and the HSE.
Phil Wilbraham said, “I am delighted to take up the role as Chair of the ECS Steering Committee and I look forward to working with the committee to continue to creatively develop the strategy that will deliver the ECS plan and more. I am keen to ensure that the safety of the built environment is at the heart of everything we do.”
