Compliance with current Health and Safety at Work and Working at Height legislation is vital to any modern window cleaning business and we are no exception.
We have been accredited to the SAFEcontractor scheme run by National Britannia since 2005. With more than 140 major clients and almost 18,000 contractor members, SAFEcontractor is the fastest growing health and safety assessment scheme in the UK.
As a leading health and safety pre-qualification assessment scheme, SAFEcontractor is dedicated to promoting higher standards of competence and compliance through the provision of relevant industry specific and tailored health and safety assessments for all professions and sectors. The SAFEcontractor scheme is now used by many large organisations as a way of obtaining competent contractors.
We have a NEBOSH qualified Health and Safety Officer who carries out regular training for all staff and our window cleaners are IPAF trained in the use of Hydraulic Lift Platforms.
Great emphasis is placed on instilling a safety culture within the Oxford Window & Office Cleaning Company. Everyone is encouraged to take an active part in implementing safe systems of work, all equipment is regularly inspected and any faults are fixed or the equipment is replaced.
