The Product Safety Conference Comes to Town

06 November 2014

Electrical Product Safety Conference

Electrical Safety First’s fourth Product Safety Conference, Time for Change, is taking place on 12th November, at Church House, Westminster – and tickets are selling out fast.

Chaired by former Working Lunch presenter and leading business journalist, Declan Curry, the event promises to be one of the industry’s most relevant and popular conventions.

Tackling the increasingly high profile issue of product recall and traceability, the conference has attracted a host of distinguished speakers, encompassing leading manufacturers and retailers, to trade bodies, enforcement agencies and  non-governmental organisations.

Presentations will include a review of the changing shape of product safety legislation and its effect on both the supply chain and consumers, and how supply chain complexity impacts on every stage of the development and production process, from design and manufacture,  through to retail and the end user. 

A key feature of the day will be the launch of a new report by Electrical Safety First, which will offer a number of recommendations for improving recall rates and traceability through enhanced consumer engagement.

“We undertook research last year which indicated that around two million people had knowingly ignored a recall notice, with a further million admitting to currently owning an electrical item that has been recalled”, explains Phil Buckle, Director General of Electrical Safety First. “So we are very clear that it is not only the industry which needs to improve its approach – consumer education and clear and accessible communications are vital in enhancing product safety.”
