The Electrical Safety Foundation International was founded as a nonprofit organization in 1994 in a joint effort by the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA), Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). The Foundation was established to promote electrical safety in the home, school and workplace through public education about electrical hazards and the preventative measures we can take to avoid property damage, litigation, personal injury and death due to electrical accidents. The foundation's main annual activity is sponsorship and promotion of May as National Electrical Safety Month.
Formerly known as the National Electrical Safety Foundation the name was recently changed to better reflect the foundation's growing reach, and the global relevance of what they preachthat of all the hazards people face day-to-day, electricity remains uniquely unforgiving; the smallest mistake can be fatal.
