SAFed Membership

29 October 2016

Responsive now SAFed Members!

We have been working exceptionally hard recently on all things management systems. This has lead us to have many customer audits and gain new work fronts which at the same time has enhanced how Responsive operate as a business.

Recently we have had a successful visit from Richard Hulmes Chief Executive of Safety Assessment Federation. Responsive are committed to safety standards and anything we can do to enhance how we operate within the inspection and testing industry.

We are pleased to announce that in our quest for continuous improvement we have been accepted as associate members of SAFed. Over the coming months we will be looking to seek full membership once we successfully achieve UKAS accreditation as an ISO 17020 independent third part inspection company.

The Safety Assessment Federation (SAFed) was formed in 1995 to act as the trade body for the UK and Irish independent engineering inspection and certification industry.

SAFed was formed from the merger of the Associated Officers Technical Committee (AOTC) and the Independent Engineering Insurers Committee (IEIC).

SAFed was established with the aim of increasing standards of safety in the workplace. Between them, SAFed member companies employ over 2,600 highly qualified engineer surveyors, providing a wide range of inspection services throughout the UK and in the Republic of Ireland.

So why use a SAFed member?

SAFed members operate as independent inspection and certification companies. Our members work with the enforcing authorities and its members to provide a range of services primarily assuring safety of plant and equipment, but also designed to assist clients in understanding their responsibilities and obligations, complying with the law, reducing risk and the consequential costs of accidents.

SAFed Member Companies provide statutory and non-statutory equipment examinations and inspection services to national legislation standards.
