About Safeguard Engineering Ltd

Safeguard Engineering Ltd (SEL) was established to meet a growing demand for an engineering delivery partner that was independent, expert, provided value for money and operated with integrity, openness and trust.  That is the ethos with which SEL continues to operate today and it has grown from the original two founding Directors to a team of 20 highly experienced engineers and environmentalists who share the Directors’ vision and goals.

At SEL we don’t believe in over complicating Safety or Environmental management. Our approach is expert, thorough, pragmatic and time sensitive. We work to agreed time and budget considerations, giving support at all stages of a project lifecycle, helping to keep key projects moving forward to meet their delivery objectives.
