Following a rigorous audit, the award certifies that Skyguard is working to the very highest standards of both product and service provision.
The National Security inspectorate (NSI) is the recognised leading certification body for the UK’s Security, Fire and Facilities Management industries, offering a multi-tier approval scheme.
Previously, Skyguard had held the Guarding Silver award which audits against lone worker sector standards, such as BS 8484:2011. However, Guarding Gold was achieved after the company’s Quality Management System surpassed BS EN ISO 9001 requirements in addition to the ‘Silver’ standards already met.
NSI Gold is widely recognised as the highest level of certification across the security industry as well as the Police, Fire and Rescue services.
Skyguard’s own purpose-built, UK based 24 hour operated Incident Management Centre had already achieved the top level ‘Gold’ award for Alarm Receiving Centres back in 2009, as it was the first in the UK to be audited to BS 8484.
Becoming Gold Standard certified offers a number of advantages to businesses eligible for the accreditation. Fundamentally, it provides customers with evidence of the company’s ability to offer the highest quality services, products and working practices.
“Achieving NSI Gold demonstrates the high levels of quality and commitment we have to our customers,” said James Murray, Skyguard’s Chief Executive.
“Now Skyguard is covered by the NSI’s top accolade and along with the coveted ‘Secured by Design’ product preferred specification on our lone worker alarms and Incident Management Centre, there’s no higher accredited lone worker safety service in the UK.”
