ShopCare represents the supply chain, transport, manufacturing and retail business sectors and industry. We are focussed on health and safety and were established in July 2019 with the support of industry members and ACC.


We partner with suppliers, transporters, manufacturers and retailers to improve the safety, health and wellbeing of all employees involved in the creation, supply, delivery, and sale of retail items, goods, and services.


We aim to drive safety leadership to increase awareness, positively change behaviours, and save lives.

Our focus is to help businesses understand key risks, identify best practice safety procedures, and support the implementation of key initiatives. 

Good safety is good for business.
