Top Safety Accreditation for Local business Ideal Cleaning has been awarded accreditation from Alcumus SafeContractor for achieving excellence in health and safety in the workplace.
Alcumus SafeContractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises extremely rigorous standards in health and safety management amongst contractors. It is used by thousands of organisations in the UK including SMEs and FTSE 100 companies
Ideal Cleanings application for SafeContractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business. SafeContractor accreditation will enhance the company’s ability to win new contracts, and its commitment to safety will be viewed positively by its insurers when the company liability policy is up for renewal.
Gemma Archibald, Director of Alcumus SafeContractor said: “Major organisations simply cannot afford to run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove that they have sound health and safety policies in place.”
“More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that Ideal Cleaning has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector. SafeContractor plays a vital role in supporting our clients in meeting their compliance needs, whilst working with their contractors as they progress through the accreditation process.”
James Turnbull, Partner of Ideal Cleaning said:
“As a well established commercial cleaning company serving the Tees Valley & County Durham area for over 60 years, we fully understand the importance of maintaining the highest standards of health and safety compliance.
Being awarded the SafeContractor accreditation not only attests to our already high health and safety standards, it also assures clients of our commitment to continually deliver safe cleaning services in the area, now and into the future.”
