HSB launch new consultancy services to help improve health & life of equipment

  • New specialist technical services focused on equipment efficiency and health and safety practices
  • HSB is using its technical expertise to expand its equipment inspection services into a wider offering for customers
  • HSB’s consultancy services are available in the UK and Ireland
  • Services cover the areas of equipment condition and performance, vertical transportation and health and safety.

HSB is expanding its engineering services to deliver consultancy services that enable businesses to improve efficiency and meet their compliance obligations.

Using the technical knowledge and expertise of its engineers, HSB’s new range of consultancy services will provide businesses with improved analysis of their equipment and health and safety practices. This will enable companies to understand and maximise operational efficiencies; helping them to reduce breakdown and risk, as well as lessen maintenance and energy costs.

The new consultancy services include:

Equipment Condition and Performance Services

The services are aimed at reducing breakdown, maintenance and energy costs with vibration and thermography technology used for leak detection.

Vertical Transportation Services

Aimed at improving lift and escalator efficiencies and reducing maintenance and energy costs, these specialist services cover the complete life cycle of a lift or escalator - from pre-handover of a new lift through to lift maintenance audits and disability access surveys.

Health and Safety Services

Focused on improving health and safety management systems and practices, the services cover areas such as lighting, noise, work equipment and safety management.

Announcing the news, Paula Homan, Director of Engineering Services, said: “We know that businesses are looking to optimise efficiencies, reduce costs and most importantly, operational downtime. The launch of our new consultancy services is part of our strategy to make equipment not only compliant and safe for use, but to provide our customers, across all industry sectors, with additional added value services to help them improve the overall health and life of their equipment, and safety of their employees.”

Gareth Bendelow, Technical Director, added: “Our suite of consultancy offerings use the technical expertise and experience of our engineers to deliver competitive and compelling services that offer real and tangible benefits to customers. Having the ability to understand how equipment assets are performing and where equipment might be failing is a key benefit for businesses looking to optimise equipment and operational efficiencies.”
