Electrical Safety First’s Phil Buckle retires

Phil Buckle, who led the UK charity Electrical Safety First for more than ten years, has retired from the role of Chief Executive.

During his tenure, Buckle directed the charity as it extended its influence into Government policy, established a major product safety conference and created a series of campaigns placing product safety firmly on the media and political agenda.

“I am, of course, sad to depart from the organisation but I leave with great satisfaction at what has been achieved,” he commented. “And I would like to thank my colleagues for their dedication and support in helping to make the charity what it is today – a key player in UK consumer protection.”

 “We would all like to thank Phil for his hard work and dedication over the last decade,” added Alison Parkes, Chair of Electrical Safety First’s Board.

“Phil has been in the role of Chief Executive at the Charity during a period of intense change – yet one in which the organisation has always punched above its weight. He is leaving the organisation with a recognised reputation in the field of electrical and consumer safety.”
