Ductwork and ventilation maintenance specialist System Hygienics has joined forces with Compliance Air and Water, following their attainment of IFSM (The Institute of Fire Safety Managers) accreditation for a fire damper testing training course.
The IFSM is a professional body which raise awareness of fire safety, promoting fire prevention and overall reduction of risk. It previously did not endorse any training courses in fire damper testing .
The institute’s support of the Compliance Air and Water course illustrates that it welcomes its independence and recognises the role played by fire damper testing in maintaining fire safety within commercial buildings.
Compliance Air and Water MD Paul Downing said: “It’s exciting to offer companies in the UK this standard of testing and accreditation as it’s something which the industry has been missing. Finally, we can provide the reassurance building owners and managers need to confidently comply with the British Standard.
“We’re also delighted to be working with System Hygienics and are looking forward to having their engineers being the first in their field to hold our independent qualification.”
All System Hygienics engineers attained the certification in August.
Mark Poultney, owner and MD of System Hygienics, said: “We are immensely proud to be the very first company to have our engineers accredited via this course. It’s so important to us that we help our clients meet their safety responsibilities and this independently verified high standard of training ensures that we can continue to deliver so much more than any other service providers out there.”
