Danger, Danger, High Voltage!

22nd January 2019

Danger, Danger, High Voltage!

With the substantial rise in new electric vehicle (EV) sales, which only looks set to continue and increase further in coming years, ChipsAway – the UK’s leading minor automotive repair specialist, has taken the bold decision to ensure only specialists who are fully trained, will be able to carry out work on these types of vehicles.

To enable this, and in the interest of safety and protecting their network, customers and general public, specialists will be required to complete a City & Guilds Level 3 in Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Repair and Replacement course.

With the help of Automotive Training Solutions, ChipsAway has already trained a substantial number of the network and have training planned in for each month of 2019, as this will be a continuous program – training new starters and head office staff too. Promoting awareness of safety is a big part of the business culture at ChipsAway and something instilled in their specialists from the first day of training.

Commenting on their progressive approach to the changing industry needs, ChipsAway Managing Director Tim Harris said:

"It is clear to us the direction that the car market is going, and that’s electric! Figures from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) show that plug-in vehicle registration has grown from around 500 per month in 2014 to 5,000 per month in 2018. It is therefore imperative that we take action to ensure our network are up to speed and ultimately safe when working on hybrid and EV’s.

The Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) have already made various recommendations to the government as to how work on EV’s should be regulated to make sure motor vehicle technicians aren’t endangering themselves by working on Electric and Hybrid vehicles. We’re certain that a ‘licence to practice’ is imminent and so by implementing this training programme, we’re not only ensuring we stay ahead of the game in terms of industry standards, but, and even more importantly, we’re ensuring the safety of our network and customers alike.

ChipsAway has always taken the safety aspect of our work very seriously, and we’ll continue to work closely with our training providers going forward, to not only maintain, but also improve upon our service standards."
