Top Safety Accreditation for Unique Clean Hire & Facilities
Unique Clean Hire & Facilities has been awarded accreditation from Alcumus Safe Contractor for achieving excellence in health and safety in the workplace. Alcumus Safe Contractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises extremely rigorous standards in health and safety management among contractors. It is used by thousands of organisations in the UK including SMEs and FTSE 100 companies.
Employing 38 people, Unique Clean Hire & Facilities are involved in public and private sector work, specialising in the commercial and contract cleaning and facilities management. Unique have worked with major blue chip companies across the continent. The company’s application for Safe Contractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business.
Safe Contractor 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 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 Unique Clean Hire and Facilities has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector. Safe Contractor 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.”
Glenn Stock Managing Director for Unique Clean Hire & Facilities said that “We are thrilled to receive this accreditation as we believe health and safety in the workplace is extremely important and something that shouldn’t be overlooked; we ensure that all employees maintain excellent standards throughout all work we carry out.”
