Aesum Case Study
Health and Safety for a Growing Construction Company
Aesum is a growing residential and commercial construction company with big ambitions. Offering services such as commercial property maintenance, residential building work and rural estate maintenance. Aesum’s current Health & Safety arrangement was not feasible for long-term success.
For Aesum, finding the right Health & Safety provider was not just about compliance, but finding a partner that understood their vision of exuding professionalism, win bigger business, be prepared and ultimately, ensure a safe working environment for their staff and clients.
The perfect opportunity arose to discuss their requirements when a mutual client required a risk assessment from Aesum.
The Right Solution for Aesum
Following an initial meeting with our team, Aesum explained their current Health & Safety arrangements and stressed the need for ongoing compliance for all future projects.
Sureteam were able to provide a range of outsourced, consultancy, and training-based solutions which met the exact needs of the two directors, Paul Aubrey and Jake Fisher, and their growing team.
Our solutions included:
- Creation of a robust Health & Safety policy.
- Development of risk assessment templates for clients.
- Creation of relevant method statements.
- First Aid Training for relevant members of staff.
- Manual Handling Training for relevant members of staff.
- Ongoing support to ensure key members of the Aesum team understand their obligations in terms of Health & Safety.
As well as the existing relationship that existed through networking, Aesum were confident in choosing us as their Health & Safety provider for a number of reasons including:
We provided a special offer, whereby when they signed up as a client, they received risk assessment templates for future use on their construction sites.
Our team have previously worked with other construction companies of similar size and like Aesum we have had the pleasure of watching them grow. Part of this has always been contributed to effectively implementing and managing Health and Safety in this potentially high-risk environment.
For any business in the construction industry, being able to present your safe working systems and Health and Safety procedures demonstrates a level of professionalism and security, which could ultimately make the difference between winning or losing a job.
Feedback from Aesum
Since taking on Aesum as a client, we are delighted to say that they have already been winning new business as a result of having a robust Health & Safety process in place. When asked whether they had CDM and Risk Assessments in place, Paul was able to mention our partnership which contributed to the success with the enquiry.
“It was nice that Peter recognised our vision and he was attracted to the potential of our company and understood how his services could benefit us moving forward”
Paul Aubrey – Director, Aesum
As well as our shared interest in growth, Aesum have frequently commented on how impressed they have been with our quick response times, helpful advice and being a great team to work.

“I had an urgent request which I contacted Sureteam about on a Friday afternoon and they were able to complete this request by Monday, I couldn’t have been more pleased”
