Health & Safety

We pride ourselves as being completely complainant with the latest health & safety regulations.

With every quotation given we supply:

  • Risk Assessment
  • Method Statement
  • Public Liability Insurance

We at The Window Cleaning Company view health and safety as a vital part of the service we provide, to ensure the safety of both ourselves and our clients. To aid us in reaching a health and safety policy that is acceptable to the HSE we approached a company and requested for them to accredit our health and safety measures.

The following health and safety topics have been considered during the assessment:

  • Policy statement
  • Organization charts
  • H & S responsibilities
  • Communication with employees
  • Health and safety training
  • Procedures/method statements
  • Permits to work
  • Manual handling
  • Risk assessments
  • H & S advisor
  • Breaches of H & S legislation
  • Emergency procedures
  • Welfare arrangements
  • Work equipment- testing and maintenance
  • Personal protective equipment
  • First aid and accident training
  • COSHH assessments
  • Health surveillance
  • Accident history
  • Implementation of the policy
  • Control of sub-contractors

Having been trained in using cradles, cherry pickers and rising platforms there isn't anywhere realistically that we can not access. No work either ladders or step ladders will be permitted, unless a specific risk assessment has been carried out and it has been proven that the technique can be used in safety.
