Top Safety Accreditation for SkyLine SoftWash
Local business SkyLine SoftWash 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.
SkyLine SoftWash is principally involved in the Exterior Cleaning sector, specialising in the Roof, Render and Window Cleaning industries. most recent clients have included major players such as David Lloyds, Bupa, Gloucestershire Council and many thousands of home owners throughout Gloucestershire and the surrounding counties.
The company’s 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 Safe Contractor said: “Major organisations simply cannot afford to run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove the health and safety policies in place.” “More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that SkyLine SoftWash has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector.
Alex Redworth, Director of SkyLine SoftWash “Health and safety is a vital need within our industry which in many cases is lacking. So many window cleaners and people cleaning roofs with little or no safety in an unregulated industry. Safe Contractor is a must for SkyLine SoftWash to make sure not only our staff are safe but our clients also.”
