SAFEContractor

SAFEcontractor was initially developed as a bespoke project for a Property Management client who wished to outsource the annual vetting of contractors on its approved list. Interest shown by other similar clients identified the potential for a standardised system that could be offered to the whole of the company's client base.

SAFEcontractor is the fastest growing health and safety accreditation scheme in the UK, with more than 160 major clients and almost 18,000 contractor members.

Registered members with the SAFEcontractor scheme include clients and contractors from a wide range of professional disciplines working within a number of industry sectors.

Campaign for Responsible Rodenticide Use

Under the banner Think Wildlife, CRRU promotes best practice and responsible rodent control, thereby protecting wildlife from rodenticide exposure.

Demands of consumers for high quality and safe food mean that there is a need for ever higher standards in all stages of food production. These include the need for highly effective control of rodents, which otherwise contaminate and destroy food at every stage from the farm to the supermarket shelf. At the same time, government agencies responsible for the regulation of rodenticides have raised concerns that many species of wildlife are being accidentally exposed to these products. These agencies have called for better stewardship of rodenticides to prevent wildlife exposure.
