Ensuring Your Physical Security Firms Credentials

Although physical security firms are not measured, as such by a governing body, to be an official construction company they should be a CIS Member. CIS is ran by HMRC and is a good indication as to whether the firm you're dealing with is authetic. If they aren't paying thier taxes correctly, the chances are they could be short changing thier customers too - or worse!

Last year in October, a Farmer in Manchester was crushed to death by an ill fitted roller shutter, the firm who fitted the shutter were charged under the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 and wound up thier company. You can find out more here
