Having led the charity for over 10 years, Mr Buckle has overseen its extended influence into Government policy; establish a major product safety conference; and create 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.”

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