About Us

PEMCO was established in 2010 by our director and founder Keith West, to provide a range of essential safety risk management support services to businesses and organisations.

Our focus is on providing services which make a positive difference to our clients and thus, in turn, allow you to focus on providing excellence in your own business or organisation.

Our Ethos

At the heart of our business is a belief that by applying safety risk management as a moral ‘duty of care’ to ourselves and our fellow humans, we can tick all the boxes, legal or otherwise, for our clients.

We strongly believe that safety, health and environmental management should be throughly integrated into your wider business activities and not simply an ’after thought or add on‘ in order to comply with legislation.

We’re realists, not ambulance chasers, and we understand the commercial realities and pressures involved in running a modern business or organisation.

We therefore adopt a highly pragmatic and proportionate risk–centric approach towards safety risk management that provides realistic, affordable and legally compliant solutions.

Hands–on Experience

Our senior management team have decades of experience managing both safety compliance and operational management issues in some of the UK’s largest commercial properties including retail shopping centres, hotels, leisure facilities, high–tech industrial and prestigious office environments.   Our experience includes acting as lead auditors when undertaking audits against the management standards ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001.

However, all our advisors have have solid hands-on experience in the risk management business – we’ve made this a minimum PEMCO requirement.   When recruiting staff into our team, we place a high value on individuals that don’t mind getting their hands dirty and have solid experience of delivering sensible and workable solutions to real life risk management issues.

Multi-skilled Compliance Team

We've also invested heavily in cross–training members of our safety compliance team to allow individual members to become multi–skilled and thus able to deliver multiple compliance service items during a single site visit.   In fact we encourage our team members to work together on compliance projects as often as possible to enable the sharing of professional knowledge and experience and we also encourage the practice of ‘peer review’, allowing a culture of open professional collaboration to flourish.
