WORKING IN HEIGHT SAFETY SINCE 2006
SafeClimb started as a PPE distributor in June 2006. The company needed a sales specialist to help grow and employed Liza Collard, a height safety specialist, from one of their manufacture suppliers, North Safety Products. North, at the time, was developing a Climbing Wall Descender and found a wall builder to distribute it in the UK. However, it became apparent that a specialist service agent was required to support these customers and SafeClimb was asked to take on the distribution and service of the CWD due to their past relationship and Liza’s expertise.
In 2010 Liza decided to push the North auto belay having secured an exclusive deal with North and launched a website just before the recall of MSA’s Redpoint auto belay withdrawing it from the market. SafeClimb, for a while, became the only distributor in the world to supply a climbing wall descender, or auto belay, and dedicated its business to this alone.
To be the best support to our customers offering polite, consistent and easy service in all aspects of our business. To build relationships and partnerships to the benefit of our customers, agents and suppliers for a good working balance.
WE LOVE WHAT WE DO
Since 2014 SafeClimb has been completely dedicated company to the design, manufacture and maintenance of height safety equipment, in particular the SafeDown auto belay, a specifically designed auto belay to replace the CWD that was no longer in manufacture. Liza now runs the company with the sole focus on safety in the leisure markets worldwide. Liza and her team will continue to look at avenues to improve safety at height in the leisure and industrial markets while supporting customers with an attentive maintenance package offering onsite as well as in house servicing.
MEET OUR TEAM
HEIGHT SAFETY SPECIALISTS
With 28 years of experience in the height safety industry, Liza’s dedication to height safety equipment is in the after care, rather than the sale, of the equipment. Liza believes this is where most incidences occur and therefore runs a focused maintenance regime for anything she sells. Liza has been known to remove a customer’s equipment if they won’t get it serviced due to the danger this could put a user at! Not a lady to be messed with! 😉
Debbie has been with SafeClimb for a year and works part time offering admin and PA support to our Managing Director when she isn’t in the office.
Debbie is responsible for ensuring that all the correct paperwork is in place for the servicing, invoicing and exporting amongst other administrative tasks. She is also good at keeping the team supplied with tea and coffee (and homemade cakes when she has time!)
Dan’s role had changed within the company to reflect new and exciting changes to the way we operate. With the growth of international partners SafeClimb are in a position to have time to develop new and innovate products. He has a long list of projects, some of which are under test now.
Dan is also under the mentoring of our CEO to develop his business management skills and take over the day to day running of the business. He has a passion for all things height safety, coming from the wind turbine industry, including mechanical engineering and climbing indoors or out!
Tim has been looking to further his role into a management lead, but still has his eye on quality and standards SafeClimb presently enjoy. His promotion will require him to manage quality standards within SafeClimb and the height safety sector. He is keen to develop safety in the leisure industry, where he expects growth to continue in the near future.
SafeClimb also prides itself on a high standard within its servicing and maintenance offering and Tim hopes to improve this even further by offering a full support service for our servicing agents, worldwide. Tim is presently developing an on line operation for reporting servicing to offer our service agents an easy and effective way to record activity.
Paul has been working with SafeClimb since 2011 and is responsible for keeping everyone on their toes and in good order, accounts-wise. He’s a stickler for detail and makes sure that customer, supplier and compliance accounts are up-to-the minute and accurate. Paul is everyone’s favourite in the company (well, on payday, anyway). His primary mission is to help Liza make SafeClimb the very best it can be, at everything it does.
When not working at SafeClimb Paul likes to relax (ha!) in his garden and get out for long
walks with his grand-doggies.
Phil & Josh are our outsourced marketing support, working with Liza and the team on all SafeClimb's promotional ideas.
Phil and Josh's company, HeyStrategy, is a Wirral-based marketing agency who work with companies across Merseyside. Whenever Liza has a crazy idea, they know that Phil and Josh will be able to turn it into reality (or talk them out if it, if it's too crazy!)
