For YOUR Health and Safety
Our responsibilities to your employees and site (and to our own employees) are of paramount importance.
It is standard practice to undertake a thorough site inspection and risk assessment before any work is carried out. Any obstructions are evaluated and noted.
This could include:
- Pedestrian access doors
- Electricity power lines
- Telephone lines
- Potentially slippery surfaces
Protective measures may include:
- Cordoning off areas
- Warning signs and cones
- Carrying out our work outside normal working hours
We are equipped to deal with all these protective measures.
Our legal obligations to Health and Safety is the minimum standard we work to and is the most important factor within our business.
For OUR Health and Safety
All of our employees undergo in-house training and each employee is made aware of the Health and Safety issues relating to their work. All new directives from the Health and Safety Executive are regularly communicated.
Our equipment undergoes a regular maintenance inspection to ensure that it is in working order, safe and will produce the best cleaning results. It is checked prior to commencing a job and after completion of the job.
