Travers Smith LLP has advised The Access Group, the UK's leading provider of software to growing mid-market businesses and charities, on its acquisition of Safety Media.
Safety Media is the UK’s market leader in Health & Safety e-learning and risk management & compliance workflow solutions. Starting business more than 30 years ago as a creator and distributor of safety videos, Safety Media is now the recognised leader for EHS e-learning in the UK market.
Only months after the acquisitions of Unicorn Training, Socrates and Riliance, on which Travers Smith also advised, Access sees the addition of Safety Media to its digital learning and compliance division as yet further confirmation of its intent to be the solution provider of choice to the UK’s thousands of mid-market and growing businesses.
The Travers Smith team was led by Private Equity and Financial Sponsors Partner Emma Havas and Senior Associate Richard Hornshaw. Specialist tax advice was provided by Tax Partner Hannah Manning and Associate Sivanti Devakumar.
