GF Electrical Ltd has just had its annual assessment for BAFE and again passed with flying colours. We have been accredited with BAFE since 2017. BAFE has set the industry standards for fire protection industry for more than 25 years. They provide annual independent and unbiased assessments of our competency to deliver quality, professional, accurate advice and ensure we are working to the most up to date relevant standards and best working practice. So why use a BAFE registered company?
What does the assessment involve?
The assessment is carried out over two consecutive days; Day one, the Assessor goes onto a selection of different sites. Accompanying Jack, our Qualified Supervisor and Designer to check the workmanship and knowledge of SP203-1.
Day two, is spent in the office, looking at paperwork and issued certification, checking background qualifications and training logs, KPI’s, how faults and recommendations are monitored and most importantly ensuring that we are fully informative with our clients.
Duty of care to employees and customers
Businesses have legislations that they have to follow to be complaint and have a duty of care to their employees and customers. Using a company that is BAFE registered when it comes to maintaining fire safety equipment, gives peace of mind as they know that everything is being completed accurately and to the relevant standards. Having an accredited company for fire protection services is strongly recommended by Government.
BAFE is the independent registration body for third party certificated fire protection companies across the UK. BAFE has schemes to support quality standards for fire protection companies to achieve and become Third Party Certificated. This Third-Party Certification is gained through a successful assessment from a UKAS Accredited Third Party Certification Body. However, businesses are only able to become BAFE Registered if the assessment is successful.
