About Us

Your Trusted Health and Safety Partner

At PERSES, we serve a range of national and global clients supporting them in achieving their vision and goals. We do this by breaking down health and safety rather than employing a one-size-fits-all approach.

Our subject matter experts are also skilled advisors who fully invest in understanding your business drivers and unique culture. This combination of expertise and client investment consistently yields the best possible results and highest levels of client satisfaction.

Our core principle is that health and safety need not be overwhelming, and should compliment businesses of all sizes.

PERSES health and safety consultants understand what it takes to help our clients make a positive impact on their safety culture. We recognise there isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution. Creating and implementing effective and impactful , health and safety solutions is about understanding our clients’ business, their risk tolerance, available resources to support and sustain implementation, corporate goals, and culture. We build custom, fit for purpose solutions with the goal of having a noticeable and measurable impact on our client’s bottom line, and most importantly, the health and well-being of their employees.

Our Values

These are our core beliefs which hold us true and to account.

  • 01
    Safety is an Inherent Quality

    Safety is not merely a number one priority, but it is an intrinsic part of PERSES culture. We allow nothing to compromise our safety standards. To ensure the safety of our employees, our clients, and everyone within the vicinity of our sites is why we exist.

  • 02
    Together to Become Better

    We always strive to be better at what we do. We generously share our expertise, and we accept critiques with open arms. We work together internally as a team, and externally with our clients to improve our services, to provide the best services.

  • 03
    True to our Word

    We acknowledge our fallibility as humans. Therefore, we take our decisions after careful deliberation. We deliver our promises, and take full responsibility for the consequences of our decisions. 

  • 04
    Prioritising Client Satisfaction

    We are our clients' most trusted advisors. We make sure to take them on a fun, memorable journey that culminates with satisfaction, success, mutual respect, and an ever-lasting friendship.

  • 05
    Care for the Environment

    Demolition is often misconstrued to be harmful to the environment. While there is truth in that, we believe that being involved in demolition places us in a fundamental position to contribute to the environment. We do this by spreading awareness of sustainability amongst our team and our clients, and through the implementation of the principles of the circular economy.

  • 06
    Creativity and Innovation

    Most projects we are engaged with are challenging and demand dynamic solutions to remove risks and increase productivity. We work as a team to come up with bespoke solutions to our clients through advanced technology and profound practical experience.


Our team is a tight-knit, talented group with a shared vision of delivering consistently great results for our clients, as well as ensuring that PERSES is a fun, inclusive, challenging place to work and develop a rewarding career. We’re very proud of the team we’ve built – there’s more than ten of us now but it still feels like it did when there were just two of us.

PERSES has always been a consultancy defined by bringing together talented people with a shared vision and passion for helping us to be the best we can be for our clients. All of our employees are unique individuals who are united by a set of core values that apply to everything we do within PERSES.
