SpaceWorks and Well Dressed Tables – part of the Arena Group – has been awarded accreditation from safecontractor for its commitment to achieving excellence in health and safety, June2013.

Safecontractor is a third party accreditation scheme which recognises high standards in health and safety management amongst UK contractors.

Employing over 60 people, Well Dressed Tables and Spaceworks Furniture Hire is principally involved in the major events industry.  Specialising in the hospitality and events industries, clients include Table Talk, Blue Strawberry, The Recipe, Goodwood, Lawn Tennis Association, IMG, British Racing Drivers Club, and Aintree Racecourse.

The company’s application for safecontractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business.

Christopher Piggott, managing director said:We’re proud to be recognised as one of the growing number of businesses in our industry that take health and safety very seriously. We take great measures to ensure all of the relevant procedures are adhered to in order to keep our staff safe.”

Under the safecontractor scheme, 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, which is accessible to registered users only via a website.

John Kinge, technical director of safecontractor said, “Major organisations simply cannot afford to run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove that they have sound health and safety policies in place.”

safecontractor plays a vital role in supporting our clients in meeting their compliance needs, whilst working with their contractors as they progress through the accreditation process.”
