Decent Cleaning become Safe Contractor Approved! - 5.0 out of 5 based on 2 votes

We are very proud to announce that Decent Cleaning has been awarded Safe Contractor status. The company has achieved SAFEcontractor accreditation in recognition of reaching the SAFEcontractor health and safety standards.

Following a lengthy application process we are now SAFEcontractors approved supplier. All of our Health and Safety processes and procedures have been fully audited and approved.

SAFEcontractor is a leading health and safety accreditation scheme, which is used by some of the UK’s biggest organisations to select contractors for work on their sites. The accreditation follows a rigorous assessment of cleaning health and safety arrangements, and working practices.

The following health and safety topics have been considered during the assessment:

  • Policy statement & Implementation
  • Organisational structure
  • Health & Safety responsibilities  SafeContractor
  • Communication with employees
  • Health & Safety training
  • Manual handling & Risk Assessments
  • Insurance policies
  • Emergency Procedures
  • Welfare arrangements
  • Work equipment testing
  • Personal Protective Equipment
  • First Aid & Accident reporting
  • COSHH

The company’s application for SAFEcontractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business. Commenting on the accreditation, Abu Said, Director at Decent Services said:

“accreditation to the SAFEcontractor scheme shows our commitment to health and safety requirements of our customers, employees and public”

SAFEcontractor accreditation is expected to enhance the company’s ability to attract new contracts and its commitment to safety will be viewed positively by its insurers when the company liability policy is up for renewal.

SAFEcontractor is applicable to most sectors although it is particularly relevant to food manufacture, property, facilities management, retail and leisure sectors, all of which are big users of contract services.

John Kinge, Head of Risk at SAFEcontractor said,

“Major organisations can no longer run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove that they have sound health and safety policies.

He continued,

“More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that Decent Cleaning has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example, which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector.”

Under the SAFEcontractor system, 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, www.safecontractor.com

Employer-organisations who sign up to the scheme can access the database, enabling them to vet potential contractors before they even set foot on site. These employers agree that, as users of the scheme, they will engage only those who have received accreditation.

Over one hundred and fifty major nation-wide businesses, from several key sectors, have signed up to use the scheme when selecting contractors for services such as building, cleaning, maintenance, refurbishment or electrical and mechanical work.
