BAFE: Improving Standards in Fire Protection
Established in 1984, BAFE is a non-profit making organisation dedicated to improving standards in Fire Protection. It is supported amongst others, by government, trading standards and the Health & Safety Executive. BAFE adopts third party certification schemes developed by independent certification bodies and where there are not relevant schemes in place, develops its own.
Why Use a BAFE Registered Company
With current fire safety legislation based on risk assessment, the onus of responsibility for fire protection is on the employer/owner/occupier. BAFE gives the peace of mind that companies are carrying out their legal “duty of care” responsibilities by insuring fire protection equipment is installed and maintained by “competent persons”. The benefits of third party certification are widely recognised as vital by enforcement authorities, insurers and government.
We at EFL Fire are assessed continuously and are audited annually to check that we are meeting the standards. The check involves on site visits to all of our engineers making sure that they are servicing to the standards set. Our paperwork processes are also checked to make sure that we can prove if necessary that we have the competence to carry out our duties.
EFL is currently SP205 approved for life safety fire risk assessment.
EFL Fire first gained BAFE Accreditation in 2002
ISO 9001: 2015
ISO 9001 is the standard against which the Quality Management System of a business is evaluated. It can be applied to all companies; therefore it is worded to allow it to be adaptable and non-prescriptive. It is however, intended to demonstrate that a business can provide a consistent standard of quality.
We at EFL Fire are assessed on our activities of our business that directly affect the quality of our products/service to our clients. This applies to our initial contact with our clients from quotation to completion of any business. We have processes in place for all of the services we offer, which means that all of our clients have peace of mind that we are doing everything we can to make sure everything runs smoothly.
Our certification is reviewed annually and any major non-conformity will mean that we would lose our membership and would have to re-apply.
EFL Fire gained ISO 9001:2008 Registration in 2002
Why use an SSAIB firm?
SSAIB (Security Systems and Alarms Inspection Board) only certificate companies that can demonstrate technical and managerial competence through an inspection of the processes and procedures they operate.
SSAIB certification means that you can be confident in the quality of service provided to protect your business from the potentially devastating consequences of fire or crime.
Increasingly insurers require evidence that all reasonable steps have been taken to mitigate risk and ensure the safety of personnel and assets within the workplace. SSAIB certificated providers will meet or exceed your insurer’s requirements.
