Abbey Fire, Always First
When you think of an industry that’s entire focus is “Fire Safety”, you automatically think of people and saving lives. Our business is synonymous to protecting people working in all types of environments.
We have acquired a vast wealth of experience through many decades of working within the dynamic, fire industry. We fully understand the imperative nature of all aspects of fire safety and work to exacting standards to ensure the highest level of quality service to all of those that we work with. Every service that we offer MUST ALWAYS and WILL ALWAYS be performed in a professional manner because a missed point on a check list, an unnecessary oversight or a negligent mistake can, ultimately, lead to a serious fire hazard within a business.
Our customers must trust us 100% to get the job done properly, competently, professional and, importantly, to comply and meet all industry standards. We have been doing what we do best since 2002 and a great way for new (and existing) customers to have absolute trust and confidence in what we do is through our third-party accreditations.
Third-party accreditations are a tangible way in which companies can demonstrate their competence. We stringently train and measure our staff’s capabilities in line with these third-party, industry standard accreditations. We train, test and tutor our staff to become fully accredited and we continue to develop and pay for our staff to maintain and retain these accreditations.
So, what industry standard accreditations do we have I hear you ask?
We are proud to be partnered with and have accreditations with:
- Safe Contractor
- British Approvals for Fire Equipment
- Construction Line
- Isoqar ISO9001
So, who are they and what do they do?
Here’s a little bit of information about some of our accreditations and why we need them as a Stamp of Approval for our company to maintain our well-earned reputation in the fire industry.
BAFE is the independent registration body for third party certified fire protection companies across the UK. A national independent register of quality fire safety service providers. BAFE develops schemes to support quality standards for fire protection companies to achieve and become third party certified. This independently acknowledges their competency to provide specific fire protection services. If you require fire protection services for your premises then you need BAFE to be sure that the companies that provide them meet all the appropriate standards and are independently audited. BAFE is completely independent and therefore is a totally unbiased party to help competent companies and people in need of fire protection services find each other. There are registered companies across the UK and are both large nationals and smaller regional businesses who have all achieved the same high-quality standards.
