SAM accreditation for JA Lee

J A Lee Window and General Cleaning Contractors Ltd received FWC Safety Accredited Member (SAM0 accreditation earlier this year. Established in 1980, JA Lee has been cleaning windows successfully for 34 years.

ndrew Lee, the company's owner, made a promise to himself to be the first company in 2014 to complete the FWC SAM scheme - and he did. He said: “Whilst my company also has Safe Contractor and Constructionline accreditation, SAM is a step up for all window cleaners as it goes further than other safety procurement schemes. It was written for window cleaners by competently trained professional window cleaners, it is the only industry specific procurement scheme, and it is a training based product rather than paper based. This meant that all company employees had to initially undertake IOSH accredited training in the use of ladders and waterfed poles, plus the company management had to undertake IOSH accredited risk assessment training.”
