We're part of a fire industry registration scheme
Right Action Fire never cuts corners. The fire extinguishers we supply, and our engineers who work on your behalf, are accredited and registered to BAFE Schemes SP101 (covering competency of portable fire extinguisher organisations and technicians).
What is BAFE?
BAFE is a completely independent third party registration body that exists to assess and approve, to recognised quality standards, companies working in the fire protection industry. It is not an accreditation body in its own right, but works closely with UKAS-accredited certification bodies geared to ISO9001 and equivalent Quality Management systems. It is truly independent and is governed by a Council made up of all major stakeholders in the fire protection industry, including consumer interests, enforcement authorities, insurers, certification bodies and trade representatives.
BAFE seeks to help end-users make informed decisions about goods and services that do have third party certification. All its schemes have paperwork against which organisations, products, services and service engineers can be independently assessed.
What that means to you:
SP101 BAFE accreditation means Right Action Fire:
- have proved that all our work complies with Codes of Practice BS 5306 part 8:2012 and BS 5306 part 3:2017
- supplies only fire extinguishers manufactured to BS EN 3
- produces quality assurance and documentation to meet ISO9001:2008, Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 and Health and Safety requirements
Our accreditation means that to provide our customers with sound advice our engineers have:
- in-depth experience of equipment maintenance
- detailed understanding of the theory of fire risk and prevention
- a thorough knowledge of health and safety law, relevant British Standards and current fire and safety regulations
Why you should choose a BAFE-registered company
Business owners and managers have legally-enforceable responsibilities to ensure the fire protection in their companies is 'fit for purpose'. (The detail is in the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005) Buying goods and services from a BAFE-registered business is an assurance that you are complying with the law, both in terms of the equipment you have bought and the way you have had it maintained.
The Department for Communities and Local Government says in its industry guidance notes: "Third party certification schemes for fire protection products and related services are an effective means of providing the fullest possible assurances, offering a level of quality, reliability and safety that non-certificated products may lack."
Furthermore, the fact that you have worked with a BAFE-registered company will prove to a court's satisfaction, should the need arise, that you have met your responsibilities under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.
