Camlab is now a BSIF Registered Safety Supplier - 13th March 2018
The British Safety supplier federation ensures that all PPE must be correctly tested and certified to meet the appropriate European standard.The British Safety Industry Federation (BSIF) is the lead association for the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Directive and is recognised as a Competent Authority by the Health & Safety Executive (HSE).
The BSIF has active links with many government departments and over 130 representative Trade Bodies. Set up in 1994, the Federation currently has some 210 members, ranging from manufacturers and distributors of safety products through to test houses, certification bodies and safety professionals.
Membership is accommodated within a number of sector trade associations. Today the BSIF is firmly established as the major independent voice of the British safety industry, helping to both influence legislation and provide industry in general with a source of authoritative information on a range of workplace safety issues, while representing the needs of its members. Supporting all those who keep people safe & healthy at work and passionate to ensure that Safety & Health is a positive force for good.
Some safety items are available that claim CE approval but in reality they have not been appropriately certified. Even worse, some items are in fact counterfeits of existing products. These products just do not perform as they should, putting lives at risk and again exposing the user to prosecution. by using a Registered Safety Supplier you can be sure you will only be supplied with genuine, appropriately approved product and you will receive sound advice without any attempt to mislead you. To assist specifiers and users of PPE to spot potentially non-compliant product, experts from within the BSIF membership have created an easy-to-use checklist.
Camlab have displayed the BSIF certificatefor your reference, and we can be contacted at anytime to give you more information about the benefits of belonging to the scheme.
