Finding a commercial window cleaning company that will provide a reliable service at a competitive price isn’t easy. There are certain things to consider including reputation, cost, locality and compliance with health and safety legislation.

Whilst the window cleaning company is responsible for compliance, building owners and people responsible for overseeing the window cleaning at their workplace have a responsibility to their employees, colleagues, customers and the general public.

Legislation also states those people who oversee the window cleaning service must also take the necessary steps to ensure that their service provider complies with legislation, in particular The Work at Height Directive 2005.

Safecontractor is a health and safety assessment scheme to help window cleaners and those looking to source a window cleaning company.

Why choose a Safe Contractor Approved Window Cleaning Company?

Safecontractor was established and set up as a government approved scheme, to reassure prospective and future clients that the schemes members were appropriately insured and that all affiliated members had their health and safety certificates and accreditations up to date and in order.
