Beko receives safety award

Beko Plc has received Electrical Safety First’s Safety Innovation Award for adding flame-retardant back panels to all of its refrigeration models.

The back panel was selected as this year’s winner due to the way in which it protects against fires spreading in homes. It has been applied to Beko’s full range of built-in and freestanding refrigeration.

Phil Buckle, Chief Executive of Electrical Safety First (pictured right), said: “We established this award to acknowledge those companies which are putting safety at the heart of their product development process and Beko Plc are worthy winners.

“They have developed a solution that reduces risk of fire and increases consumer safety. And they have done so in advance of expected changes to the product standard in this area, which must be applauded.”

The fact that our work to improve customer safety has now been recognised by Electrical Safety First is an achievement that we are really happy and proud of,” commented Andrew Mullen, Quality Manager UK and Ireland at Beko Plc (pictured left).
