Campaign to boost recovery

Certass is backing the new ‘Work Safe. Safe Work’ campaign launched by TrustMark, to help boost the recovery of the construction and home improvement sector.

Supported by the Construction Leadership Council, the ‘Work Safe. Safe Work’ goal is for homeowners and tradespeople to work together to ensure that everyone is kept safe while any works are being undertaken in the home.

Chairman at Certass, Jon Vanstone, said: “As lockdown restrictions ease, more homeowners are having worked carried out at home and this is vital for the recovery of our sector. ‘Work Safe. Safe Work’ is a great campaign that will bring real clarity and confidence to homeowners who are ready to have home improvements carried out.”

TrustMark is the government-endorsed consumer protection scheme and this campaign has been developed in partnership with the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).

“Certass is a TrustMark Scheme operator, giving members a rapid route to membership,” Jon said. “It is a strong brand for businesses to be associated with, as it is the only government-endorsed quality mark for tradespeople and offers real, robust protection for consumers. That’s why membership is so important to Certass.

“All of the ‘Work Safe. Safe Work’ collateral is free to download for all installers. There is a video, website and social media content available as well as a leaflet outlining the responsibilities for both parties, when work is carried out.”
