SEE achieves its Safer Space Accreditation
Press Release - August 2020
The accreditation is an annual assessment of processes carried out at a facility and means that the contractor delivering the acccreditation has been through the most robust processes of training, having passed an audit on how they use the latest techniques to sanitise a building.
SEE Services has gained its accreditation for Safer Space, the UK cleaning sector's premier certification for contractors who are committed to delivering the highest of standards of cleaning and hygiene.
Safer Space was established in 2018 in response to the lack of formal standard by which facilities managers could judge the competence of their cleaning contractor. Achieving Safer Space certification means that the contractor has been trained and assessed in the use of specialist sanitisation techniques, including the correct use of electrostatic sprayer technology.
Ongoing - and in order to maintain the accreditation - contractors are assessed annually to ensure they possess the most up to date knowledge and continue to comply with best practice.
Only certified contractors are authorised to issue site specific accreditation that a building is "Safer Space". In all other circumstances, Safer Space will need to randomly attend and assess a site to ensure the effectiveness of the work being carried out. All these processes are being challenged by an independent advisory board of industry market place experts.
"There has never been a more significant and relevant time to have achieve this accreditation," explains SEE's Group Strategy & Development Director Jeff Alden. "Having this certification behind us means that our clients can be confident that we will provide them with a clean, sanitised and importantly, hygienically safe area that meets the highest industry standards."
