Safety accreditation award for window cleaner

David Morris Window Cleaning is one of the latest companies to join a leading edge scheme, designed to help industry improve its safety record.

The Cornwall based firm, which employs four people, recently received accreditation from SAFEcontractor, a programme which recognises very high standards of health and safety practices amongst UK contractors. Specialising in the commercial sector with a rising client base, turnover has doubled in the last 12 months. Recent clients include Marks & Spencer, The Tate St Ives, The Porthminster Hotel and many other landmark buildings.

David Morris said: “We are delighted to have achieved the SAFEcontractor accreditation. It shows our clients how committed we are about their health and safety obligations while we are cleaning on their premises. So many businesses don’t understand their obligations when employing window cleaners and we believe this is a step in the right direction to give them a choice of who to consider when employing window cleaning services.”

SAFEcontractor is operated by international health and safety risk management specialists, the National Britannia Group.
