SSAIB, the UK’s leading fire, security and telecare certification body for organisations, has recruited two new regional auditors to carry out inspections of existing, and potential new, registered firms. News of their appointment follows the recent retirement of a long-standing, well known and respected SSAIB inspector for the north-west of England, Adrian Lupton.
SSAIB Chief Executive Geoff Tate welcomed the new auditors joining the organisation, Peter Cowell and Anthony Collett. Peter has nearly 30 years’ security industry experience with companies including Thorn Security and more recently was MD of HSG Security. He will now be inspecting companies in Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire, Herts, Bedfordshire and Northants.
Meanwhile, Anthony has also been working in the industry for a similar time in roles including an alarm engineer and contracts manager for firms such as Secom and Bell Security. As a regional auditor for SSAIB, his patch covers the counties of Kent, Sussex and Surrey.
Peter recently attained a quality management systems lead auditor qualification and Anthony will be attending a similar course run by the International Register of Certificated Auditors later this year. “We’re delighted to have two inspectors with such a broad span of knowledge, all of which is now available to our existing registered firms as well as businesses actively considering the many benefits available through certification by SSAIB,” Geoff Tate comments.
