staff and resources

Our international team of consultants are handpicked for not only their technical competence, but also their enthusiastic and dynamic approach to delivering consultancy and training services.

Where in-house resources are not available directly, for example, specialist noise surveys, services are networked with a small group of similar independent partners known to provide a reliable high quality service based on established working relationships. In this way all our valued clients receive a ‘One-stop’ service for their health and safety management needs.

our dedication to you

We have a wealth of experience in Health & Safety training and consultancy services gained through years of dealing with SME's to large corporate organisations.

We recognise the importance of excellent customer service and our commitment to quality, innovation and performance is as paramount to us as our commitment to providing dynamic, yet seasonable, safety solutions.

our story

  • 2008 - SMC is established

    The company was set up by the current Directors Steve McClean and Michelle McClean. Steve, an international health and safety professional for more than 25 years, started SMC Ltd to bring his dynamic yet pragmatic approach directly to client businesses.

  • 2009 - Accredited Training Centre status

    We receive approval from IOSH and NEBOSH to deliver their courses. Our training centres increases to 5 locations throughout the UK. Our consultancy client base grows and we recruit more consultants to join the team.  

  • 2011 - CITB accreditation

    We achieve accreditation to teach the CITB Site Safety Plus courses, including the SMSTS and SSSTS courses. We increase our client base in the construction sector and add CDM services to our consultancy services.

Exceeding Expectations

"If you were to ask me what makes SMC so different, I would say that its the high quality and engaging style of our training and consultancy services. We go that extra mile to deliver dynamic, yet pragmatic health and safety solutions that specifically meet the needs of our clients to ensure we exceed their anticipated expectations.

For most companies that need health and safety support or training, our highly professional, yet common sense approach makes a refreshing change !"
