The BAFE SP101 scheme is to ensure that organisations and the technicians they employ are competent to provide fire extinguisher services including:
- Sourcing (the correct selection of fire extinguishers for your building)
- Commissioning (on-site checks to ensure fire extinguisher is fit for purpose prior to installation)
- Siting (correct positioning and installation of fire extinguishers in your building)
- Maintenance/Servicing (regular checks to ensure fire extinguishers are in efficient working order and ready to use in the event of fire)
The objective of this scheme is to increase the quality of fire extinguisher service organisations and their technicians working in the field, providing the consumer with confidence they have selected a competent and safe service provider. These technicians will have been awarded the BAFE Diploma which includes asbestos awareness/health and safety training to ensure they work to the safest and highest standards within the industry.
