National business Dublcheck Cleaning Services Ltd 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.
Employing 18 people and with over 75 franchisees nationwide, Dublcheck Cleaning Services Ltd is principally involved in the Commercial Cleaning sector, specialising in office, medical, dental surgery, showrooms and nursery’s and school cleaning, with a £10 million turnover. Dublcheck’s most recent clients have included major players such as Sunbelt Rentals and Krystals packaging.
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 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 Dublcheck 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.”
Ann Struggles, Managing Director of Dublcheck Cleaning Services said: “We are absolutely committed to ensuring our staff, Franchisees and customers are working in a safe environment, especially during the pandemic and our SafeContractor accreditation shows that Dublcheck as an organisation works to high standards of health and safety compliance”.
“I am incredibly proud of our staff and franchisees for achieving this significant accreditation”.
