Engineering Safety and Efficiency

 
 

Our History

HSEC is a privately owned business that has been successfully delivering expertise and knowledge since 1990. Over these years it has grown organically into a significant provider of engineering health and safety consultancy services delivered into diverse market sectors.

Health, Safety and Engineering Consultants Limited (HSEC) was founded by Robert Mitchell and Angus Currie, both mechanical engineers with a background in the mining industry. With the structural changes in British Coal, HSEC was able to employ 16 of its engineers and specialists from the Bretby facility in Burton-on-Trent, and then enter into a service contract with British Coal with the objective of diversifying their skills across different industries. Some of these original services, such as winder testing and manager’s rules assessments, are still being provided to UK Coal.

In 2008, HSEC acquired the leading UK litigation and expert witness service providers RHMA, and Dom Barraclough joined the Consulting team as a Principal Engineer. With the natural synergy of the two brands, the business was structured so that HSEC and RHMA then became the trading brands for consultancy and expert witness services respectively which leveraged further strong organic growth.

Planning for the future

In March 2012 Dom Barraclough acquired the business including the HSEC and RHMA brands. Now a subsidiary of an engineering services business, Dom Barraclough restructured the Board and put into place an investment plan to leverage further growth.

Dom Barraclough sits as Managing Director on the Board which benefits from the guidance and wisdom of John Crabtree OBE, our Chairman and a respected corporate lawyer; Rebecca Walton CA, our Financial Director with expertise in high growth SMEs and Patrick Kelly, an internationally recognised expert in Consultancy businesses. 

With a strong ethos of 'evolution not revolution' and a clear understanding that our reputation and relationships with clients are at the heart of what we do, our strategy is to drive growth by investing. This ensures our team of consultants and administrators are strongly supported and developed to have the skills and resources to help our clients manage and control engineering health and safety risk and solve problems.
