PPE Inspections

Our team’s personal protective equipment (PPE) is an essential part of our safety policy here at Aquamark Cleaning. Before any of us takes a foot off the ground to clean your property, a full PPE check has to be carried out to make sure the safety equipment we use is completely up to standard.
We are now fully qualified to carry out these thorough PPE checks in-house, following our completion and receipt of the PPE Inspection Competent Person Certification from XI Training Ltd.
This means that, no matter how tall your building is, our expert team of technicians can continue to wash it safely, efficiently and without any unnecessary delays.

Our PPE certification

Three members of the Aquamark Cleaning team – Brad, Alasdair and Levi – have received their qualification to check all our PPE equipment, including the abseil systems and back-up devices. The certification enables us to meet the requirements of important legislation, including the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations (LOLER), the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER), and the Working at Height Regulations (WAHR).

Papertrail

As part of our updated health and safety policy, we now use Papertrail to record all our PPE equipment checks and other safety inspections, such as anchor-point checks. This means that we can easily draw up a full report of your property (including images, certificates and dates) to see when we last checked your anchor points, ensuring the building is as secure as possible before our abseil team gets to work. As part of the inspection, our qualified team members will ensure that all items of safety equipment have the serial number printed clearly on them, and that the serial numbers are properly logged for identification reasons

With initiatives like our PPE Inspection Competent Person Certification and Papertrail, we are aiming towards certification from the Industrial Rope Access Trade Association (IRATA) – a highly respected organisation that offers training and accreditation for rope technicians who work at height. Gaining this will enable us to highlight our dedication to the safety of our technicians and our clients – something we pride ourselves on in every project we are involved in.
