A HEALTH and safety consultancy in Huddersfield has secured a contract in the Midlands.
Bradley-based Safety Management and Monitoring Services will provide vital environmental support and advice to Brindleyplace, a popular business and leisure centre complex in the heart of Birmingham city centre.
SM&MS will help the award-winning development to achieve ISO 14001 accreditation – the international standard setting out how a company can benefit by an environmental management system in place to reduce its impact on the climate.
Brindleyplace is a mixed-use development comprising shops, leisure facilities, restaurants and bars. It also provides offices occupied by major companies such as Royal Bank of Scotland, BT and Lloyds TSB.
As part of the project, SM&MS is providing support to enable Brindleyplace to develop and submit the appropriate documentation needed for the accreditation as well as helping with the auditing process.
Fiona Loveland, operations and environmental manager at Brindleyplace, said: “We elected to work with SM&MS on the ISO 14001 project because of the health and safety consultancy work they have previously successfully carried out for us.
“We recognise that achieving ISO 14001 is part of a continuous process of environmental management and we will continue to ensure we meet our environmental objectives as part of our overall business priorities.”
Phil Morris, director at SM&MS, said: “We are delighted to be providing support and advice to Brindleyplace regarding the ISO 14001 accreditation. Our expertise in environmental management is second-to-none.”
SM&MS was founded in 1994 and has grown into one of the UK’s leading providers of health and safety services – assisting companies in meeting legislative demands and achieving best health and safety practice.
The company has branches in London and Bristol. Its services include health and safety risk assessments, fire safety risk assessments, disability audits, asbestos surveys, environmental management and training.
