Super Rod Safe Isolation survey is back!

Professional electricians and installers are risking their lives everyday by not following basic safety procedures before starting work. 

2,044 installers were surveyed in 2022 about their safety habits and although the findings show some positives, as an industry, we have a long way to go with an average of 13 fatalities, and over 220 serious injuries, many of which could have been avoided if safe isolation was in practice.

This survey was inspired by Michael’s Story. Michael Adamson was just 26 when he died after coming into contact with mains voltage power in an incident at work in August 2005. He was an experienced electrician but there were a number of health and safety failings on the site where he was working – including the failure to implement safe isolation procedures and a failure to provide lock off devices and testing equipment – which would eventually lead to his tragic death.

We need you!!!! 

We are now running the survey again, 6 years on, to try and gauge whether or not safety has improved among electricians in the workplace. 

So, if you are an electrical apprentice, electrical installer, electrician, or maintenance worker please take a few minutes to complete the survey. We need your feedback!

(You Have Until 31st August to Enter)

Everyone who completes the survey will be in with a chance to win a Klein Tools Tradesman Pro Tool Bag kit including tools + a Super Rod Mega Set worth over £500 trade.

  • 1 x Tradesman Pro Tool Bag Backpack

Has anything changed in 2024?

That’s what this survey is going to tell us when we publish the results in September. 

Michaels story’s mission statement: to stop anyone else from losing a life or a loved one in a work-related incident which could and should have been prevented. This is such an important statement so please help us raise awareness about safe isolation so everyone takes the necessary precautions to prevent any incidents.
