Health & Safety

In recognition of the risks our people face in their day-to-day practise on site, SVM embarked on a significant training programme and have re-written details supporting our health and safety policies as well as the method statements for the typical scenarios our people face.

The following provides a brief summary of our credentials in health and safety:


National Britannia
SVM commissioned National Britannia to undertake an independent audit on our management of health and safety. The result of this was that we achieved a satisfactory standard of compliance with Health and Safety Executive Guidance HS (G) 65: Successful Health and Safety Management.

ContractorPlus Accreditation
SVM have successfully achieved accreditation status under the national ContractorPlus scheme, administered by SM&MS.

This accreditation has been awarded following an assessment of our health and safety documentation in comparison to the ContractorPlus standards. This accreditation has been awarded for the following services:

  • 'Principal Designer'
  • Project Managers
  • Lifts and Escalators
  • M&E Inspections
  • Energy Management
  • Facilities Management
  • M&E Consultants


SVM are also members of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).

As members, we support RoSPA's mission to save lives and reduce injuries. We also benefit from being kept up to date with the latest best practice in safety and accident prevention.


Induction and Method Statements
Personnel who work for SVM are inducted in accordance with our standard Health and Safety procedure.

During this process individuals are provided with a detailed method statement for the typical scenarios that they are likely to be faced with.


SVM have engineers that specialise in HVAC systems, electrical systems, lifts, escalators, platforms and cradles who are qualified with NEBOSH General Certificates in Occupational Health and Safety.

We are currently appointed as 'Principal Designer' on a large number of projects, including services related projects and more general construction and refurbishment projects, working alongside professional practices we regularly partner with.

Recognising and managing relevant project risks and communicating to those people who need to know is at the heart of CDM Regulations 2015.

The powerful combination of NEBOSH qualified engineers, together with current best practice on all of our CDM related commissions enables SVM to apply best practice throughout all aspects of our work.
