Global HSE, specialist in Fire Engineering solutions, is one of the few companies to be named a preferred installer as part of the Hilti Accredited Firestop Specialty Contractor (HAFSC) programme in the UK.
Hilti undergo a rigorous process of selecting contractors, who also need to be certified by a third party such as FIRAS or the Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB). This means that they work to agreed industry standards, employ trained operatives and are subject to on-site audits and inspection of representative samples of the work carried out to ensure compliance with manufacturers’ recommendations and Building Regulations.
Only a handful of UK companies have made the grade says Hilti’s Stefano Paino. “We selected Global HSE because of their company culture and values, which aligns with Hilti’s values. They take an active role in educating and informing the market about fire safety and how to stop fires. They do the right things in the right way.”
Hilti and Global HSE have been working together on a number of projects over the past year, giving Hilti good opportunity to see the business in action. Hilti say they are impressed with Global HSE’s commitment to the industry, and their professional approach to Corporate Social Responsibility, Quality Assurance, and ongoing employee training.
Andrew Cooper, Managing Director of Global HSE says “We are thrilled to be recognised by an international leader in the industry, and to be selected as an accredited partner in the UK. This acknowledges our commitment as a team to delivering exceptional fire safety services with the aim of safeguarding people, premises and businesses.”
