Blake Fire and Security Systems

What Does Our Dedication to Accreditation Mean For You?

Date: 23 March 2023

Blake's have long held a dedication to accreditation. If you look at the bottom of our home page you'll see our trophy cabinet. It's the collection of badges and logos we're allowed to display.

These are things we in the security industry work hard for. But you see this kind of thing everywhere. Vans, shop windows and websites carry all kinds of stickers and banners. So how is anyone meant to know what they mean? Or, more to the point, what they're worth!

What is "accreditation"?

It's more than a club attendance certificate. And you can't just buy them! Blake's are SSAIB and NSI Gold accredited. The National Security Inspectorate (NSI) is...

"...the leading certification body for the security and fire protection sectors in the UK. For over 40 years, we have helped protect businesses and homeowners by providing robust, high quality audits of home and business security and fire safety service providers.

Businesses and homeowners who choose NSI approved companies have the reassurance that their chosen contractors will work to the highest industry standards demanded by the Police, Fire and Rescue Services and the insurance industry"

The standards of the SSAIB are just as high:

SSAIB’s schemes comply with all Police policies (England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic) and insurers - often as a condition of their underwriting - place particular demands on security and fire safety system providers.

So not just anyone can display their badge! It's the mark of a security professional that has proven their standards to industry authorities.

How do Blake's earn and keep them?

To be awarded we have to pass a robust, high quality audit. That means we prove to independent auditors that we meet the standards they require. Areas checked include:

  • How we recruit and train our engineers
  • Quality of equipment we supply
  • Standards of work we do

Every area is checked against tough British and industry standards. Once we've done that we have to show that we don't just uphold that standard - we constantly seek to improve!

The world moves fast and security is no different. To keep our SSAIB accreditation, there are regular surveillance audits to pass. We have to show that we stay up to date with our skills and knowledge - there's no resting on our laurels!
