Health and Safety Regulations at GC&C
NVQ in cleaning and support services
What are they all about?
At GC&C we take health and safety seriously, which is why all our window cleaners have obtained Cleaning and Support Services NVQs. These qualifications mean our professionals have a complete grounding in all areas of cleaning, have a thorough grasp of safe working practices and illustrate our staff have excellent communication skills with customers.
These include Health & Safety, Working safely at heights and using a Water-fed pole system to clean windows and facades.
IOSH – (Directing safely)
What is it?
We meet all safety standards and regulations required by IOSH for both domestic and commercial window cleaning services. These include:
- • Directors and employers statutory duties
- • Identifying accident causes and planning for prevention
- • The consequences for poor Health & Safety management
- • Performance monitoring for continued improvement
- • Applicable legal obligations in the UK
Public & Employers liability
Having the correct public liability is important with regard to the amount and also the areas covered in the policy. One in three companies do not have the correct insurance. We are members of Federation of Window Cleaners which in order to be a member you must at least have a bona fide policy in force. We are insured for £10 million which covers local Government work and corporate companies.
