An Antrim company has been praised by Finance Minister Simon Hamilton MLA for backing the SparkSafe Licence to Practice initiative.

A procurement pilot, which began last month, requires electrical contractors tendering for specific Government construction contracts to ensure that, if successful, only electrical workers that are Licensed to Practice will be deployed on site.

The six-month pilot has been developed to stamp out unqualified operatives describing themselves as electricians and also to improve electrical safety standards.
