Fraudulent claims: the need for vigilance

When it comes to choosing a compressed air supplier, increasing numbers of end users are looking for the security and expertise that comes with using a BCAS member.

When it comes to choosing a compressed air supplier, increasing numbers of end users are looking for the security and expertise that comes with using a BCAS member.

A key role of the Society is to help educate operators on the safe use of compressed air, and BCAS leads the way in the UK and Europe in specialist compressed air training, education and management.

The recent trend in using a BCAS member for the supply of compressed air equipment has led to an increase in the number of companies fraudulently claiming to be a part of the Society. It's becoming increasingly common for companies to use the BCAS logo on the side of vehicles, buildings and any forms of external communication in the hope of picking up more business.

To help customers choose a genuine BCAS member, the Society has developed the AirSAFE registration scheme. Using the online system, customers can read reviews on BCAS members' performance from their industry peers and find a recommended compressed air distributor local to their business.

The system enables customers to make an informed decision on which compressed air supplier to select, based not just on locality or price, but on important factors such as reliability of service, technical expertise, helpfulness and environmental diligence.

If end users are in any doubt about the legitimacy of their compressed air suppliers' BCAS membership, they should visit the 'Find a member' area of the BCAS website, or contact the Society directly.
