Expansion plans come to fruition for compliance experts OHS


"We've added new accreditations, services and software and invested in new offices and lab facilities in Manchester ... so clients have peace of mind their portfolios are ticking over smoothly."
Manging Director at OHS, Andy Fowler



 Under a new management team, compliance consultancy OHS has expanded over the last year with new offices and a laboratory in Manchester, and new software that will enable it to offer facilities managers and duty holders improved asbestos, fire and water services.

OHS recently achieved UKAS ISO1725 accreditation for asbestos testing and analysis, and four stage clearance, which complements its ISO1720 certification for asbestos surveying and inspection.

In addition, OHS has also commissioned a new, bespoke software platform to further streamline services for facilities managers and duty holders.  It will allow greater visibility and transparency, plus real time benefits so they can see what is happening across their whole portfolio. Alongside the usual asbestos module for property owners, the new software – designed by OHS and developed by Shine Vision – has been expanded to include air testing, fire, water, health and safety and asset management tools, offering a real time data stream, live dashboards and interactive CAD drawings.

Headed by Managing Director, Andy Fowler who works alongside director, Aaron Dodd, OHS has moved into a new 20-person office in Manchester and has added a purpose-built laboratory to it for asbestos sample analysis and air testing.

The compliance consultancy aims to recruit around 20 more staff in 2021, across all departments and regions, and aims to grow revenues of up to £5m in the next five years with new acquisitions and winning more work in the education, healthcare and manufacturing sectors.  The compliance consultancy also has offices in Yorkshire, where it has a loyal client base.

Speaking of the newly expanded business, OHS Managing Director, Andy Fowler said:  “We’ve come a long way since acquiring the business in 2020, and in just year one of our five-year plane we’ve added new accreditations, services and software to our offering and invested in new offices and lab facilities in Manchester.  This is all to ensure our clients receive the highest quality service from us and have peace of mind that their portfolios are ticking over smoothly. 

“We’re building a strong senior leadership team, with a successful track record, so facilities managers and duty holders can be sure they’re getting the experience and expertise they need.”
