PIB Group buys health and safety training business Lincsafe

May 30, 2018

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 Construction Skills, UKATA and IOSH approved training providers, 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, who founded Lincsafe will remain in the business following completion of the deal. The business will continue trading as Lincsafe, but join PIB’s new division ‘PIB Risk Management’ which brought together two existing businesses (Ford Risk Management and Sigerson Associates) earlier this year.

John Lacey, commented: “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 broarden their services and start exploring opportunities and synergies.”

Brendan Mcmanus, CEO for PIB Group, commented: “I’m very pleased to welcome John and his team to PIB Group. 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.”
