June 21, 2006
ROSSLYN, Va. - The Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI) has announced the launch of its redesigned Website, www.electrical-safety.org, which the organization says provides improved search functionality, a new look-and-feel for better clarity, as well as added features.

"With this new design and structure, consumers at home and in the workplace will have better access to information on electrical safety hazards and precautions," said Brett Brenner, ESFI president. Along with the added enhancements, visitors to the site are able to sign up for free seasonal electrical safety tips via e-mail.

A new Hot Topics section highlights ESFI's most recent news releases and important electrical safety reminders, as well as recalls and other printable safety materials. The Website also includes a new section that features Spanish versions of ESFI's Indoor and Outdoor Electrical Safety Check booklets. In addition, ESFI is publishing new electrical safety information for the workplace under the moniker "Test Before You Touch." All of ESFI's electrical safety information and materials will continue to be offered for download free of charge.

Founded in 1994 through a joint effort between Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL), the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), and the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA), the Electrical Safety Foundation International is a nonprofit organization dedicated exclusively to promoting electrical safety in the home and workplace.
