Welcome to SG World, Leaders in Visitor Management & Health & Safety Solutions


From Safeguard Systems to SG World

Safeguard Systems and Safeguard Systems EuropeSG World, formerly known as Safeguard Systems and Safeguard Systems Europe, has supplied market-leading health and safety compliance solutions to public sector and commercial organisations in the UK and Europe for over 40 years.

The company was formed in Crewe in 1969 under the name Safeguard Systems, eventually expanding into Europe with a head office in Ireland trading as Safeguard Systems Europe. Originally selling accounting and finance products, the business soon expanded to provide solutions for health and safety needs, such as equipment inspection, visitor management, safeguarding solutions, contractor management and permits to work and accessories including inspection status tags, lanyards, and identification cards and ID card holders.

Following a management buy-out of the company in 1997, SG World retained the rights to the Safeguard Systems and Safeguard Systems Europe names. In 2007, the decision was taken to rebrand Safeguard Systems as SG World to better represent the company’s wide range of business solutions and international positioning.

SG World’s product range currently includes our best-selling visitor pass system, contractor management solutions including permits to work and authorisation, inspection solutions and software. SG World’s visitor pass system, a Safeguard Systems best-seller, helps companies comply with the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 by informing visitors about site rules, emergency evacuation procedures and other safeguarding information through providing the details on the visitor pass that a visitor must sign to receive. SG World’s inspection solutions include forklift truck inspection pads, scaffolding inspection pads, pallet racking inspection pads, and the option to customise or create bespoke inspection solutions. SG World also offers display paddles to place on your forklift truck, ladder, scaffold or other piece of equipment to show the inspection status of it and whether it is safe to use. SG World also provides a range of safeguarding solutions specifically for schools including accident and incident reporting pads and registers, latecomers’ registration, authorised absence systems and visitor and contractor management systems customised specifically for schools.
