ISO Consultants for Cleaning Companies
The commercial cleaning industry is highly competitive and has many risks, and compliance obligations to manage.
ISO Management Systems and Certifications can help cleaning firms meet their obligations and demonstrate their commitment to interested parties.
The processes found in most commercial cleaning companies go hand in hand with several ISO Standards.
Assent can help you implement these standards, and other risk management frameworks, to help your organisation meet its compliance obligations.
Quality Management to ISO 9001 for Cleaning Companies
Maintaining quality of service when staff are dispersed across multiple client sites can be difficult but ISO 9001 provides a framework which includes training, auditing and measuring performance to ensure that customers receive the best possible service.
Environmental Management to ISO 14001 for Cleaning Companies
Cleaning companies can impact the environment in many ways. For example the company’s choice of cleaning products is important to minimise negative effects on the environment.
Often cleaners travel to many different locations, and the carbon footprint of travel in private or company cars can be significant.
ISO 14001 provides a framework to measure and manage these, and other impacts of the company.
Health and Safety to OHSAS 18001 for Cleaning Companies
There are numerous risks to the health and safety of cleaning staff including lone working, manual handling, use of chemical products and slipping. OHSAS 18001 provides a framework for managing occupational health and safety in the business, and certification to OHSAS 18001 is still one of the most recognised marks of assurance.
Many companies are also achieving certification to other schemes including CHAS and Safe Contractor.
Winning More Cleaning Tenders
Although we can’t guarantee it, achieving ISO certification to these standards can greatly help in the tendering process. Recognised UKAS Accredited certification will be accepted by most companies, and may allow you to cut out some responses.
