Securitas gains another industry-leading certification

The UK security leader provides highest Fire Safety standards

Securitas has achieved BAFE (British Approvals for Fire Equipment) accreditation.

BAFE is a scheme that has been set-up to ensure companies maintaining portable fire extinguishers work to a recognised standard.

This standard is principally based on ISO 9001:2015, but specifically shaped to make sure those who maintain fire extinguishers follow strict industry codes.

The UK security leader, and its employees who maintain fire extinguishers as part of their role, are continually assessed to ensure customers receive a professional service that meets recognised standards.

This now means Securitas is certified to ISO 9001 and BAFE SP101, as well as being listed on the official BAFE Register.

Shaun Kennedy, Director of Specialised Protective Services at Securitas, said: “We’re delighted to add another industry-leading accreditation to our repertoire, which will provide the opportunity for new business growth in a specialist market.”

“Most importantly, it provides customers with the confidence that their fire equipment is maintained in a highly professional and safe manner.”

This once again shows the security leader’s commitment to raising industry standards and providing customers with the very best protection.

Earlier this month, Securitas gained FREDD (Free Running Explosive Detection Dog) certification – the EU standard for the use of dogs in aviation cargo security.

This latest accreditation is another positive step for Securitas, as they continue to lead the industry, blending people, technology and knowledge to provide complete peace of mind.
