Kevin Richards

Managing Director - Step Up Security Services Limited
JAS Associates have provided Security by Design with comprehensive quality management and health and safety consultancy services since 1999, during which time our business has grown and changed a great deal. JAS has been able to tailor its services to meet our needs at all times. Our relationship started when JAS assisted us in gaining ISO 9000 accreditation and put in place a quality management system which was appropriate to our business and has proved to be a valuable tool for our long-term growth. Over the years, we have also successfully achieved many other quality standards and accreditations with the assistance of John and his team. With JAS assisting our quality management is was an easy decision to extend our relationship into the health and safety sector. JAS provide us with a total health and safety service including consultancy, risk assessment, training and advice.

We have worked with John from JAS Associates for many years now and the great thing about that is that he has real time experience in working Quality, BS8418, ARC/RVRC & H&S and can keep us aware and on top of these elements that are so important to our operations now and in the future.

Peter Gould - Onwatch (UK) Limited

Managing Director
I can’t thank John Slade, Steve Brazier and all the other staff at JAS Associates enough for all the excellent work they did for me and my Company. It was a seemingly never ending adventure. We at Humber Security Solutions would have been lost without you in the last minute preparations leading up to our SIA ACS accreditation. It is thanks to you that we achieved a pass on our ACS audit. I would also like to mention that Steve Brazier is a fantastic person who guided us with all the help we needed to achieve the ACS accreditation. I would also like to state that we at Humber Security Solutions fully recommend JAS Associates and will be staying with them for however long we are in business.
