The Key Safe Company achieves industry certification

June 20, 2022


The Key Safe Company has been named as the first supplier to attain Technology Enabled Care industry’s Qualification Standards certification.

To pass the TEC Quality Standards Framework (QSF) audit, the access provider had to demonstrate that the QSF requirements were met and fully integrated into the company’s working practices and processes.

The business has achieved maximum compliance in the 10 common standards, which form the foundation to excellence in the TEC sector.

These are: use and servee experience; user safety; effectiveness of service; information governance; partnership working and integrated services; workforce; business continuity; ethics; performance & Contract Management and Continuous Improvement & Innovation.

In addition, The Key Safe Company also achieved compliance in the Supply Sector/Solutions Provider service delivery module.

CEO David Ogden said: “Providing the best possible products and services is engrained in our DNA and certification from QSF means a lot to the entire team.

“The principles of the QSF align perfectly with our vision and purpose to enable better lives and deliver reliable and useful products and services that contribute to society while acting lawfully, ethically and with integrity.

“The certification is not just testament to our ability to deliver excellence which our customers have come to expect of us. It’s also the assurance to our business partners and our often vulnerable end users that they are centerstage in everything that we do.”

As a TSA founder member, the QSF award marks a continuation in ‘industry-firsts’ for The Key Safe Company. Europe’s first ISO approved company to sell key safes, the organisation worked closely with the world’s leading building science centres to help regulate the industry and to develop the Police Accredited Standard.

Police Crime Prevention Initiatives (Police CPI) is a police owned organisation which delivers a wide range of crime prevention and demand reduction initiatives across the UK. The extensive Police CPI portfolio covers a variety of crime prevention initiatives, of which Secured by Design is the most well-known, with all initiatives designed to keep the public safe from crime and to reduce the demand on the police service.

Secured by Design (SBD) operates an accreditation scheme on behalf of the UK Police Service for products or services that have met recognised security standards. These products or services – which must be capable of deterring or preventing crime – are known as being of a ‘Police Preferred Specification’. 

There are many hundreds of companies who produce over 7000 individual attack resistant crime prevention products in more than 30 different categories that have met the exacting Police Preferred Specification. This includes doors, windows, external storage, bicycle and motorcycle security, locks and hardware, asset marking, alarms, CCTV, safes, perimeter security products and many others.

SBD is the only way for companies to obtain police recognition for security-related products in the UK. Pictured here are
