Site visit to BDS Fire


This May we were thrilled to have the opportunity to take part in a visit with our client BDS Fire onsite at Wimbledon.

Site visit to BDS Fire

Last year Compliant delivered ISO certification support for BDS Fire to standards ISO 14001 and ISO 45001, with ongoing maintenance and surveillance support.

Fire detection and alarm experts, BDS Fire met with us at the All-England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club (known to us as Wimbledon) to show us what they get up to on a day-to-day basis. The Surrey based company were awarded the maintenance of the fire alarm systems at Wimbledon back in 2018 and we got to see first-hand the maintenance regime, on site project management and their full engineering support.

The tour was led by BDS Fire, Compliance Manager, Graham Hawkins. Graham comes with a wealth of experience in fire advice, risk assessments and compliance. Showing us round the grounds Graham explained “we manage over 15,000 devices here onsite and are moving to a 24 panel network; it’s constantly expanding. At the minute the site covers 56 acres, with 900 call (call)points and court 1 alone has a 12,500 seating capacity.

Having ISO 14001 and 45001 in place ensures that we are complying with health and safety regulations and considering the environment in all of our activities. Compliant have been a great support and we look forward to a successful ongoing relationship.”

Compliant Director and Lead BSI Auditor, Mark Henderson commented “This has been another great site visit for the Compliant team. We take pride in meeting the staff from the companies that we support and getting to see where and how our management systems are being implemented.

The team at BDS have been extremely thorough and we were able to see for ourselves at this impressive site that the environment and health and safety are being considered at every stage of their processes.

We are excited to visit more of BDS Fire’s clients and see how the certifications that we facilitated are being embedded across a range of different locations.”

Digital Marketing and Internal Audit Manager, Danielle Barry added “It’s great to be out and about again after the restrictions and it was fantastic to visit another client on such a prestigious site. Seeing how our management systems are ensuring that the highest standards are met at such a prominent location has been extremely rewarding.

Not to mention it’s always exciting to meet the teams that are implementing our framework in real life situations. These site visits give us a greater understanding of the requirements of the documents that we are developing and how we can make future improvements. Thank you to Graham, BDS Fire and the staff at Wimbledon.” If your business is looking for ISO certification support or guidance complete our FREE ISO calculator here today and one of our team will be in touch.
