Professional Electrician & Installer – Join the (Third) Party

In the latest edition of Professional Electrician & Installer, NSI CEO Richard Fogelman sheds light on today’s dynamic fire safety landscape highlighting the crucial role of third party approved electricians and installers in safeguarding lives, property and business reputations.
