Moores Cleaning Receive Top Safety Accreditation for Fourth Year

Andover’s Moores Cleaning has been awarded accreditation from Safecontractor for its commitment to achieving excellence in health and safety for the fourth year running.

Employing over 100 people, Moores Cleaning offer a range of contract cleaning services including:

  • Office cleaning
  • Builders cleans
  • Carpet cleaning
  • End of tenancy cleans
  • Floor Maintenance

The company has also built up a professional and reliable reputation with clients such as:

  • Stannah Stair Lifts
  • Help for Heroes – Tedworth House
  • Naomi House Children’s Hospice

The company’s application for safecontractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business.

Managing Director Nick Butt said: “We are always looking at ways to improve not only the service we give our clients but also the conditions we have for our staff.”

“In addition safecontractor accreditation will enhance the company’s ability to attract new contracts and its commitment to safety will be viewed positively by its insurers when the company liability policy is up for renewal.”

Safecontractor is a leading third-party accreditation scheme which recognises very high standards in health and safety management amongst UK contractors. It is applicable to most sectors although it is particularly relevant to food manufacture, property, facilities management, retail and leisure sectors, all of which are big users of contracted services.

John Kinge, technical director of 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 Moores Cleaning 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.”

Under the scheme, businesses undergo a vetting process which examines health and safety procedures and their track record for safe practice. Those companies meeting the high standard are included on a database, which is accessible to registered users only via a website.

Client-organisations who sign up to the scheme can access the database, enabling them to vet potential contractors before they even set foot on site. These clients agree that, as users of the scheme, they will engage only those who have received accreditation.

Over 210 major, nation-wide businesses, from several key sectors, have signed up to use the scheme when selecting contractors for services such as building, cleaning, maintenance, refurbishment or electrical and mechanical work.
