BAFE ACCREDITATION FOR INTEGRAL’S FIRE DIVISION
Safety accolade gives leading maintenance company‘s customers “peace of mind”
[UKPRwire, Wed Sep 02 2009] Following a rigorous assessment Integral‘s Fire Division has been awarded the prestigious BAFE (British Approvals for Fire Equipment) accreditation.
The BAFE accreditation, the very highest in the industry, is recognised and endorsed by all the major regulatory and enforcement bodies, including Government departments, fire authorities, insurance companies and the Health and Safety Executive.
Carl Redfern, National Operations Manager for Integral‘s Fire Division, said that because the BAFE-accreditation was the industry benchmark it would give customers peace of mind that they were receiving the very best service.
“You can test equipment as much as you like, but until an incident actually occurs you have no idea whether or not the equipment you have paid for will do the job of protecting property and human life,” he said.
“However, one way people can be sure their fire equipment is installed and maintained to the highest possible standard is by choosing a BAFE-accredited company like Integral and its Fire Division.”
Mr Redfern added that in today’s business world, with the increased emphasis on responsibility and self-assessment, being BAFE-registered was also a valuable commercial asset.
“It gives Integral an additional visible level of professional competence which sets us apart from many of our competitors and gives our customers and prospects the peace of mind that they are buying from a reputable company which has achieved the highest benchmark possible,” he said.
“Choosing fire protection from a BAFE registered firm means you know that its products and services conform to rigorous standards and, with the increasing responsibility for safety falling on the owner/occupier, it is more important than ever that the quality of fire protection is fit for purpose and installed and maintained by competent people.”
Bryan Glastonbury, Integral‘s Managing Director, said: “I am delighted that Carl and his team in the Fire Division have achieved this prestigious accreditation which builds on Integral‘s growing reputation for providing the very best property maintenance services on the market.
“At the core of what we do is to offer the very best in customer service but without cutting corners or compromising quality, and all underpinned by our market-leading client retention levels, currently running at 87 per cent.”
