With a reputation for high quality fire safety services and products, Elite Fire work hard to ensure that we provide first rate work for all clients. Our focus is on safety and industry compliance when we work, which is reflected by the accreditations that we hold.
Below, we have included further details regarding some of the certification and qualifications that we have obtained, as well as their importance to the industry.
The British Approvals for Fire Equipment (BAFE) organisation work as an independent body to regulate the sale and usage of fire safety equipment by third party companies. It is crucial to have BAFE certification for specific services offered. Here are a couple that are held by Elite Fire:
BAFE Modular Scheme SP203
This scheme focuses on the design, installation and upkeep of fire alarm systems, ensuring that the setup fitted at any premises is properly suited to the requirements of that environment. When using a fire safety company that holds this accreditation, customers can be confident that they are in the hands of knowledgeable professionals.
BAFE BS 5306 Part 3 – Portable Fire Extinguisher Maintenance
As with the modular scheme, BS 5306 is about instilling confidence in the customer that they are dealing with qualified professionals. Part 3 relates to the commissioning and maintenance of portable fire extinguishers, ensuring that the correct extinguisher is installed at a premises in respect to the makeup of potential fuels present.
The British Fire Consortium
The British Fire Consortium have been acting as the industry’s premier provider of details for customers looking for accredited fire safety equipment and service providers. British Fire Consortium membership shows potential clients that a company has been through the stringent checks and vetting process required to join.
For the last hundred years or so, the British Standards Institution has been the last word in regulating excellence at a wide variety of businesses. The BSI offers its members advice and assistance when it comes to improving their operations – not just when it comes to remaining in compliance with regulations, but also when it comes to performance and quality of service.
The Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS) is widely recognised as the industry standard when it comes to the assessing of best practices carried out by businesses operating within these sectors. As the fastest-growing scheme of its kind in the UK, CHAS work with their own client base to ensure that they are well supported when it comes to keeping to superior health and safety practices, and CHAS accreditation is a must-have for all contractors.
A well-established health and safety compliance assessor, Safe4Site is another trusted name among contractors and customers alike. Safe4Site membership is a stamp of approval for all businesses looking to instill confidence in their health and safety practices at work, and Elite Fire are proud to be accredited by the organisation.
Focusing on putting buyers in touch with suppliers across all sectors of industry, Constructionline provide customers with detailed and validated information about the hundreds of companies they have within their membership. Not only does this allow customers to easily locate and contract a company suited to their needs, it also ensures that stringent regulations and checks have been applied to that company in order for them to be vetted by Constructionline.
The Fire Industry Association (FIA) is the biggest trade association dealing with fire safety in the UK with over 700 members. As they state in their own words, their “objective is to promote, improve and perfect fire protection methods, devices, services and apparatus.” It operates with impartiality, meaning that customers can be sure they are receiving accurate and unbiased information about the companies within the association.
The FIA has such sway within the industry that some of its members are even involved in influencing regulations and legislation, and all associates receive top level training and guidance when it comes to fire safety practices.
With over 27,000 members on its books, SafeContractor can certainly lay claims to being one of the largest databases of contractor information in the UK. A SafeContractor member company, such as Elite Fire, can provide its clients with the peace of mind that comes with being thoroughly audited by one of the most trusted names in the industry.
