Being a BS10125 workshop (formerly known as PAS 125) means they are a forward thinking bodyshop and have adopted industry wide standards to enable them to carry out work to the highest standards. This standard is recognised by leading insurance companies as the gold standard.

As part of this standard,  technicians need to be tested and assessed every three years on there skills by an independent IMI centre. This is where BWS LTD comes in. We carry out this service onsite ensuring the high standards Sapphire Garage and BS10125 are maintained.

BWS being an approved IMI test centre carry out this service on the customers premises. This onsite testing is preferred  by many body repair centres, not just Sapphire Garage as it enables the technicians to be tested in an environment they are familiar with and  tools/equipment they use everyday. 

It also saves on costs as each technician is not away from the company and can  still be a little productive. 

Testing onsite is not only easier, quicker and less stressful for technicians it also helps in in the technicians passing the course.

BS 4872 MIG/MAG Welding,  and BS 1140 Spot welding testing  are also done onsite and this meets AOM - 009 certification.

If you require  personnel testing and would like us to do this for you onsite then please contact us for more information.
