ESF product safety conference details announced

In Industry News On

This year’s Electrical Safety First (ESF) product safety conference, entitled Product Safety First – Time for Change, will be held on Wednesday November 12, at Church House, Westminster. The Conference will be chaired by former Working Lunch presenter and business journalist, Declan Curry.

Key themes are scheduled to include the changing shape of product safety legislation, identifying trends and emerging issues, recall effectiveness and the issue of behavioural change in consumers. ESF says that a highlight of the event will be the launch of its research project on consumer behaviour – and how this impacts on traceability and product recall.


Previous research shows that consumer indifference and an underestimation of the danger of recalled products make a significant contribution to low recall rates. Nearly two million adults have knowingly ignored a recall notice, with a further million admitting to currently owning an electrical item that has been recalled.

“This is the fourth Product Safety Conference we have run and over this period we have seen increased demand for an event of this nature,” explains ESF director general Phil Buckle.

“The Conference has become a major forum for ideas and information around product safety, as it brings together key stakeholders from across the board – manufacturers, retailers, consumer safety professionals and government bodies – to ensure consumer protection benefits from the industry’s collaborative approach.”
