Established for over 25 years, Access Cleaning has become a major force within the specialist cleaning industry. Supplying a vast range of businesses with quality, reliable and efficient specialist cleaning services.
We are audited and accredited by SafeContractor the fastest growing health and safety accreditation scheme in the UK, dedicated to promoting higher standards of competence and compliance.
We are also accredited by Contractor Plus the web based database of contractors who have been rigorously vetted to ensure their health and safety standards are of the highest quality. The system, developed in partnership with Lambert Smith Hampton allows surveyors to search on line for reputable contractors and even filter the search by contractor service or location.
We are audited and accredited by CHAS. Each month thousands of contractors and consultants (suppliers) apply for work with public and private sector organisations (buyers). To win work, they must meet the buyer’s health and safety standards. Assessing suppliers health and safety competence is usually a lengthy and time consuming process.
Suppliers can sometimes meet one buyer’s Health and Safety standards but not another. Being CHAS approved reduces duplication as suppliers compliance is accepted by all CHAS buyers.
CHAS assesses applicants:
- Health and safety policy statement;
- Their organisation for health and safety;
- Their specific health and safety arrangements to a standard acceptable to our buyers and to others.
