Health and Safety and Employment Law specialists impress judges with innovative approach

Huddersfield company SM&MS (Safety Management and Monitoring Services) have been commended for their hard work and commitment to Huddersfield after winning the Eaton Smith business of the month award.

The award was presented to the company recognising that during the past ten years the company has grown by 20% every year taking its turnover to £3.5m. The judges were particulary impressed with the company’s attitude towards innovation and development and felt they deserved recognition for the cloud based compliance systems: PropertyPlus and ContractorPlus. Also the company’s ‘Simple’ service was commended as a helping hand to those smaller companies who despair at the red tape and compliance headaches they are obliged to manage.

Ian Greenwood from Eaton Smith says: “It is clear to see why SM&MS won this award. The company illustrated how their growth over 18 years is largley due to word of mouth and referrals based on the good service they provide. They have stayed true to their roots and employed locally bringing the total number of employees to 60. They are still a family run business with a focus on nurturing which reflects in their staff retention rate. It is a very impressive company and we are very lucky to have them in Huddersfield.”

Richard Edwards, Director of Client Services says: “This has been a total surprise. Being recognised locally means the world to us. Ambitions are high this year and we have plans to grow and expand working towards developing a larger business based right here in Huddersfield.”

The Business of the Month Award is run in association with Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce and UKTI. It is open to firms in Calderdale, Kirklees and Wakefield.

SM&MS are a Huddersfield based Health and Safety and Employment Law Consultancy established in 1994. As well as working with national corporate clients like Costcutter, Kwik Fit, Spar and Harvey Nichols they also provide workplace compliance solutions to small and medium sized enterprises (SME’s) to reduce their workplace burden.
