An independent organisation reviews the processes of a business, the technicians, the equipment and tools used, as well as other areas. This independent assessment determines that the work practices meets the required specifications.

Risks of using non-independently assessed suppliers

Fire safety suppliers must always put quality and safety first. They must employ trained, qualified and assessed technicians, and are evaluated as such.

Can your business afford to use a company and technicians that do not meet industry standards? That have not been reviewed by impartial, independent bodies?

Independent assessment means the quality of works carried out have been verified as being to a suitable standard.

The costs associated with using a non-independently assessed company can be considerable.

In the event of a fire, an insurance claim may need to be made. If a business cannot prove to insurers that competent service and product providers were used, there could be issues in receiving any pay out.

Why is it important to use an assessed supplier?

It is vital that the fire safety services used in businesses are of good quality and maintained to high standards.
Protecting life and property is extremely important and should be treated as a priority. Businesses have a legal requirement to ensure works carried out on their premises relating to fire safety, are competently completed.
