The Building Safety Group opens new office in Scotland


THE BUILDING Safety Group (BSG) has opened a new office in Scotland. The opening follows a recently agreed partnership between BSG and the Scottish Decorators’ Federation (SDF).

BSG will be working from SDF’s Stirling based premises to support members operating in Scotland, as well as grow its overall membership base throughout the region.

Stephen Bell, Managing Director for BSG, commented: “At a time when there is so much economic uncertainty, I am delighted with our partnership with SDF. The new office means we can strengthen our community ties in Scotland by continuing to support local construction businesses in the area and at the same time look for new opportunities to grow BSG.”

Neil Rogers, Chief Executive for the Scottish Decorators’ Federation is also pleased with the new working relationship. “We felt it was important that SDF looked to work closely with a recognised and reputable safety group with the resources to drive up health and safety standards for our members. I have no doubt that SDF will benefit greatly from the advice, expertise, and wealth of support available through BSG.”

Located in Castlecraig, Stirling, the office will be run by BSG’s Safety Adviser for Scotland, Scott Lynch, who will be available to advise members on how to best manage health and safety in construction. In addition, Scott will continue to provide site inspections for membership companies based in Scotland.

The new office will also be used as a training facility for running CITB and other industry approved courses.  The Building Safety Group trains over 10,000 operatives throughout the UK every year.

As well as being representative of BSG’s long term plans for Scotland, the partnership is also part of a strategic national objective to connect with other membership organisations who share similar aspirations for the construction sector.
