Health and safety specialist Lincsafe will join PIB’s new risk management division
PIB has announced the acquisition Lincolnshire-based health and safety specialist Lincsafe.
The deal, PIB’s 15th investment since it started first acquiring in February 2016, will see Lincsafe join the consolidator’s new division ‘PIB Risk Management’.
The division was created earlier this year through the bringing together of existing businesses Ford Risk Management and Sigerson Associates.
Brendan Mcmanus, chief executive for PIB Group, said: “The business has been established in the health and safety sector for 25 years and their specialist skills and experience are a great addition to our growing risk management division.
“We have around 30 consultants representing a wide range of risk management services that we can provide to our clients. We fully intend on investing more over the next 12 months.”
Lincsafe was formed in 1993 to provide a specialist health and safety advisory service from large blue chip national companies to small local businesses primarily within the construction sector.
Over the years it has developed to provide a nationwide health and safety management service and training to clients throughout the UK and Ireland, as well as a number of overseas projects.
Their primary focus is on project inspections and training staff on all matters relating to health and safety.
In addition, the firm is a Construction Skills, UKATA (UK Asbestos Training Association) and IOSH (Institution of Occupational Safety and Health) approved training provider, which means that any training given is to a recognised national standard.
John Lacey, past president of IOSH and well respected with in the safety profession, founded Lincsafe and will remain in the business following completion of the deal.
And Lacey added: “I’m delighted that Lincsafe is joining forces with PIB Group.
“We will continue to enjoy serving our clients across the UK for their health and safety needs, however, the opportunity to become part of a wider group and access further resources and investment is very exciting.
“We are looking forward to working closely with the PIB Risk Management team to further broaden their services and start exploring opportunities and synergies.”
