Why choose an SSAIB firm?

Why choose an SSAIB firm? – Confidence!

When it comes to protecting your property from the potentially devastating impact of crime or fire you can’t afford to take any chances. The correct choice of security protection system and service provider is vital.

Having a security systems provider in whom you can trust will ensure peace of mind for you and demonstrate to your insurer that you have acted responsibly to protect your home or business. This need not be a matter of luck; it can be an informed choice if you select an SSAIB certificated firm.

Confidence

SSAIB (Security Systems and Alarms Inspection Board) only certificate companies who demonstrate competence and financial probity in the management of their business. Certificated providers must also demonstrate technical competence and ethical conduct when it comes to providing fire detection and alarm or security services to your business.

SSAIB certification means that you can be confident in the quality of service provided to protect your business from the potentially devastating consequences of fire or crime.

Increasingly insurers require evidence that all reasonable steps have been taken to mitigate risk and ensure the safety of personnel and assets within the workplace. SSAIB certificated providers will meet or exceed your insurer’s requirements.

For increased confidence when buying a security system you should:

  • Use only SSAIB certificated companies.
  • Always agree a written specification.
  • Ascertain what repair or call out cover is provided.
  • Ensure that you are given a Certificate of Conformity for your system. This confirms that the system has been installed to all relevant standards.
  • Confirm whether you have bought or leased the system.
  • Have your system regularly maintained; this may be a condition of cover.
  • Seek and follow up references.
  • Ensure that your Intruder Alarm System provider obtains a police unique reference number for monitored installation as this will be used to verify the alarm and initiate a Police response. Only certificated providers are able to obtain Police URN’s.

The SSAIB check the following so that you don’t have to:

  • Personnel have been screened to the relevant British Standard
  • Competence and experience of management and staff
  • Insurance cover is relevant to the level and nature of work undertaken
  • Premises are adequate for their activity and that the security of documentation and records is ensured
  • That best-practice standards are maintained.
  • That sufficient staff and resources are employed to provide the services offered
  • Compliance with all relevant standards and codes of practice, British or European
  • Identity cards are carried.
