Electrical Safety First supports calls from LFB on recall process

In Industry Comment, Industry News On

Campaigning charity Electrical Safety First has commented on the letter to Rt Hon Theresa May MP from the London Fire Brigade, which was supported by London Mayor Sadiq Khan.

Electrical Safety First chief executive Phil Buckle said: “One year on from the Shepherd’s Court fire, we fully support London Fire Brigade’s call to Government to urgently address the issue of ‘white goods’ fires. In England alone over five fires a day are caused by white goods. These fires can have devastating effects as we have seen at Shepherd’s Court, Lakanal House and of course Grenfell Tower.

“As members of the government’s Working Group on Product Recalls and Safety, we have offered our recommendations on an improved product safety system, including the introduction of a centralised recall database. Now we, along with the London Fire Brigade, the Mayor of London and other safety campaigners would like to see these recommendations put into action. Otherwise, every day white good fires put more lives at risk.”
