The Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS)
CHAS accreditation shows that a contractor complies with strict health and safety standards. We have been CHAS-certified for a number of years now, and are audited on a yearly basis.
Our membership with SafeContractor – one of the UK’s fastest-growing assessment schemes – is just another layer of our commitment to health and safety. It highlights the strength of our strategies for testing, inspection, governance, risk and compliance.
Federation of Window Cleaners
We are part of the Federation of Window Cleaners, which is a widely recognised and highly regarded group for industry professionals. The Federation ensures that contractors big and small have access to high-quality advice about health and safety requirements, as well as expert training.
ISO 9001 is the international standard for a quality management system – a set of policies and procedures that ensures we’re meeting our customers’ needs. Our accreditation gives customers peace of mind that they’ll receive a consistently high-quality and efficient service.
As the international industry standard for an environmental management system (EMS), our ISO 14001 accreditation highlights our compliance with environmental laws, regulations and guidelines. The framework shows that we have a clear, comprehensive EMS in place, which we review constantly to ensure we’re doing all we can to reduce our environmental impact.
PPE Inspection Competent Person Certification
Three members of the Aquamark Cleaning team (Brad, Alasdair and Levi) have gained their PPE Inspection Competent Person Certification, which means that we are able to carry out PPE checks in-house – including inspections for abseil systems and back-up devices. This also enables us to comply with the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations, the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations, and the Working at Height Regulations.
