It is important for you as the appointed person responsible for fire safety within your building is confident that the organisation you use are competent. After specifying a BAFE SP101 Registered Organisation to provide fire extinguisher services, it is also important to know you can also check the fire extinguisher technicians that will be completing this work on-site are BAFE SP101 Registered. To do this you can demand to see their BAFE ID card (example shown below). Please note this is a strongly recommended action to exercise due dilligence.
This card will feature their name, organisation and ID card number. You can contact BAFE Head Office on 01608 653 350 or email email@example.com quoting these details to verify their Registration is valid, and working for the appropriate BAFE SP101 Registered Organisation.
A valid BAFE SP101 Registration for fire extinguisher technicians ensures they continue to follow best practice, have regular refresher training, and on-site assessments* to demonstrate ongoing competence.
*on-site assessments are performed by BAFE appointed field assessors.
