Safer Sphere continues to grow after 5 years in Construction Health and Safety

North West based Construction (Design and Management) Regulation 2015 (CDM 2015) Advisors, Safer Sphere celebrate their 5th year in Construction Health Safety this December. The CDM Health and Safety experts have gone from strength to strength over the past few years, not only doubling their client base but have also doubled in size too. The business has hired 4 new team members to add to their existing team in the past year, with more hires planned in the New Year.

Although CDM support is niche, all construction projects must adhere to CDM 2015 regulations and it is this requirement that has seen a high demand for the Safer Sphere team.  Since the company started in 2012 they have been involved with numerous high profile projects and more recently, have been appointed on projects such as Media City’s Alchemist, Noma Angel Meadows, Timber Wharf and Advisors to cardboard Manufacturer, Prowell, on their new mega-plant in Ellesmere Port.

Mike Forsyth, Managing Director, Safer Sphere said “Safer Sphere delivers a niche service to assist the construction industry and CDM duty holders enabling them to effectively discharge their duties applied to them by the CDM Regulations, and related health & safety legislation. Our year on year growth is in part down to the changes from CDM 2007 to CDM 2015. These new regulations, brought in by the HSE on the 6th April 2015, apply to the whole construction process and projects from concept to completion. These regulations must be adhered to by law but can also be very complex and we have been able to support and educate our clients so that they meet their legal obligations. Our team are not just Health and Safety experts but are experts in their field, as we have experienced Architects, Surveyors and Civil Engineers all under one roof. The Safer Sphere team has doubled in size and I am pleased to see the business grow as the demand for our services increases.

We continue to support clients and projects of all sizes in the industry and we are finding that our clients are coming back to us, which is credit to the expertise of our team.”

Safer Sphere operates nationwide from their office in the North West. Mike Forsyth will be sharing his expertise on the subject at the up-and-coming National Housing Maintenance Forum conference in January.
