A FIRM in Huddersfield has won a three-year deal to provide health and safety services to the UK’s biggest commercial property consultancy.
Bradley-based Safety Management and Monitoring Services will carry out health and safety, fire and flood risk assessments as well as asbestos surveys and online data management for 350 managed properties on behalf of Lambert Smith Hampton.
SM&MS has been working with LSH for more than four years, having gained “preferred supplier” status to provide asbestos surveys on a national basis in 2004.
Since then, it has completed more than 500 asbestos surveys on behalf of LSH and has provided expert health and safety advice to many of the regional offices as required.
In addition, SM&MS provides its bespoke online contractor management system, ContractorPlus, to LSH. This allows the company to vet the health and safety documentation of all contractors it uses in order to reduce risks in using such contractors.
Sue Morris, director at SM&MS, said: ‘We are delighted to have been awarded such a prestigious contract with LSH.
“This is a reflection of the expert advice and support we have provided them on health and safety matters in the last few years and is a further indication of our continued success in the commercial property market.’
LSH provides a broad range of commercial property services and advice to clients in both the public and private sector. It has a network of 28 offices spanning the UK and Ireland.
Robert Faulkner, head of asset and property management at LSH in London, said: ‘We are very happy that SM&MS will be supporting our health and safety requirements over the next three years.
“As a company we have a comprehensive health and safety policy and with the involvement of SM&MS we will ensure that our teams work safely and securely, with no risk to themselves or those around them.”
As part of the new contract, SM&MS will also supply LSH with its innovative PropertyPlus system, which links into ContractorPlus and will enable the company to assign tasks to approved contractors, get fee proposals and raise purchase orders for tasks derived from risk assessments.
