A Scarborough cleaning company has raised its standards in a bid to attract new larger contracts.
Spectrum Cleaning Solutions, has been awarded accreditation from safe contractor, a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises very high standards in health and safety management amongst UK contractors, for its commitment to achieving excellence in health and safety,
Employing ten people, Spectrum is principally involved in the supply of cleaning and hygiene products, washroom services and hygiene management consultancy to businesses in Scarborough and covers the whole of Yorkshire, specialising in the hospitality, education and healthcare sectors.
Mick Merrygold, Logistics Manager said:
“Our application for safe contractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business.
“We are proceeding through a high growth trajectory and aim to double our turnover within the next three years and the safe contractor accreditation will enhance the company’s ability to attract new, larger contracts.”
“Investing in Health and Safety is vitally important to us as a business and this accolade provides us with real peace of mind, keeping us one step ahead of our competitors”
John Kinge, technical director of 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 Spectrum Cleaning Solutions has done.
“The firm’s high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector.”
