Safety award for interiors firm

Have your say

BURY St Edmunds-based Service Group Interiors has joined a leading scheme, designed to improve safety records.

The firm, which has been trading for more than 40 years, has been accredited with SAFEcontractor, a programme which recognises very high standards of health and safety practice among UK contractors.

The company specialises in the supply and installation of office partitioning, glass walls and storage wall systems. It says the new accreditation will help it attract new custom, and lower its insurance costs.

John Kinge, head of risk at SAFEcontractor, said: “Major organisations can no longer run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove that they have sound health and safety policies.

“More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that Service Group Interiors has done.

“The firm’s high standard has set an example, which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector”.
