Eaton, Schneider Electric and Siemens joined forces with Electro-Federation Canada to raise awareness of the risks and hazards associated with counterfeit and unsafe electrical products.
“Many counterfeit electrical products are unsafe and may not have been tested and certified safe to use by testing agencies like CSA International who, among other Canadian certification laboratories, tests and certifies billions of products for the safety of the public,” reads the press release.
The campaign includes print ads, postcards and buttons. (You’ll see those print ads in Electrical Business and L’industrie électrique). Packages containing information materials and awareness buttons were sent to distributors, informing and encouraging them to spread the word during the month of May to their customers.
