What is FASQUAL?
FASQUAL is a fire and security Contractor registration scheme developed by the BSIA and the FIA. The aim of the scheme is to provide reassurance to employers, offering the peace of mind necessary when hiring contractors which proves they are qualified, suitable and low risk. Although often an arduous and time consuming task, vetting candidates and making sure the right one is hired is absolutely paramount in this industry.
FASQUAL is a national database that stores all the information employers require from Contractors in one place, making hiring more efficient and trustworthy while simultaneously providing a legitimacy to the process. By being on the database, Contractors can prove that they are:
- ID verified
- Vetted to BS7858 standards
- DBS checked
- Manufacturer specific trained
- Holders of industry recognised qualifications or proven experience
It’s an innovative solution that removes the irritating hurdles hiring managers dread, instead providing them with a streamlined and reliable alternative.
