Shopfitting contractor Shopmate has earned accreditation from SAFEcontractor, a third-party scheme that recognises very high standards of health and safety practice amongs contractors.

Simon Wagstaffe, managing director at Shopmate, said: "At Shopmate we have always given health and safety a high priority. We are constantly working on other people's property and our clients need to be reassured that we have sound health and safety procedures in place. The SAFEcontractor certificate of competency acknowledges our high standards in this area."

Under the SAFEcontractor system, businesses undergo a vetting process, which examines health and safety procedures and their track record for safe practice. Those companies meeting the high standard are included on a database. John Kinge, head of risk at SAFEcontractor said: "Organisations can no longer run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove that they have sound health and safety policies."
