About Us

We believe in making safety simple

Shield Safety Group is a leading provider of Food, Fire and Health & Safety Software as a Service (SaaS), supported by consultancy services delivered by the UK’s largest team of Environmental Health Practitioners. Based in Manchester’s unique Northern Quarter and London’s trendy Shoreditch, Shield Safety believes in making safety simple for every business in the UK.

Trading since 2003, Shield Safety Founder and Food and Health & Safety Practitioner, Mark Flanagan, understands from experience the challenges businesses face when managing compliance. Meeting regulations can be complicated, it is time consuming and costly if it goes wrong. Mark’s aim, along with the smartest and largest team of Environmental Practitioners in the country, is to simplify the whole process of compliance.

Through Software, Services, Training and specialised packages for large and small businesses, we provide our clients with all they need to ensure they are compliant, whilst saving time, money and hassle. We are proud of our 98% customer retention rate, so if you are a new start up business, or one of the biggest brands in the UK, we have the software and services solution for you.

Primary Authority

Shield Safety Group is the first consultancy to have a Primary Authority through our Co-ordinated Partnership with Milton Keynes Council. Through this, we have gained Primary Authority Advice, which is assured, for our Food Safety Membership Pack designed for SMEs. Primary Authority Advice means that provided that you abide by the advice you are given, you won’t need to follow conflicting advice from other sources. Your business should be protected against the risk of enforcement action from enforcing authorities that have different views on what you should be doing to achieve compliance.

Our strong working relationship with Milton Keynes means we can also work with businesses to achieve Primary Authority Advice for specific operating procedures and documentation. If you want your own Primary Authority Direct Partnership with a local authority of your choice, we can help arrange this for you and we can also coordinate a Direct Primary Authority for you via our partner Milton Keynes.
