Safety Ireland First Response Ltd has been named Defibrillator Distribution Company Of The Year by the All-Ireland Business Foundation.

The Terenure business is Ireland’s largest safety and healthcare training company and has established itself as a one-stop-shop for all medical, health & safety requirements.

Safety Ireland First Response Ltd has been recognised for its outstanding contribution to quality and standards in Irish health and safety.

Business All-Star Accreditation is an independently verified standard mark for indigenous businesses, based on rigorous selection criteria. The Accreditation is overseen by the prestigious All-Ireland Business Foundation, whose adjudication panel is chaired by Dr Briga Hynes of the University of Limerick and Kieran Ring, CEO of the Global Institute of Logistics.

Reacting to the announcement Safety Ireland First Response Director James Butler said:

On behalf of the Safety Ireland First Response team I am delighted to accept this accreditation. I see it as a fantastic acknowledgement of all our hard work and the contribution we are making to safety standards in Ireland. We have a fantastic team and loyal customers and we are delighted to know that we are providing a best in class service.

Deputy Chair on the Adjudication Board Kieran Ring said in support of the announcement: “Safety Ireland First Response Ltd has achieved AIBF All-Star Defibrillator Distribution Company 2021 Accreditation. The Accreditation is in recognition of the company’s outstanding contribution to quality and standards in defibrillator distribution. Furthermore, we wish to recognise Safety Ireland First Response Ltd’s conduct in the areas of trust, commitment, performance & customer-centricity. Safety Ireland First Response Ltd is hereby included in the AIBF Register Of Irish Business Excellence for a third successive year.”

Managing Director of the All-Ireland Business Foundation Kapil Khanna said the accreditation, which is now held by over 500 firms, is needed by the thousands of small and medium businesses which operate to their own standards but have nothing to measure them by.

He said: “We evaluate a company’s background, trustworthiness and performance, and we speak to customers, employees and vendors. We also anonymously approach the company as a customer and report back on the experience. The business goes through at least two interviews and is scored on every part of the process against set metrics.”

The All-Ireland Business Foundation (AIBF) is an autonomous national accreditation body tasked with enterprise development and the promotion of Best-in-Class in Irish business.

The Foundation actively engages and supports its network through peer dialogue, collaboration, mentoring and enterprise development activities. Companies are qualified for accreditation by completing an enterprise audit and are identified by their use of the AIBF’s Business All-Star Marque.
