Award-winning cleaning company gains SafeContractor accreditation

10 September 2020

SAFECONTRACTOR ACCREDITATION has been awarded to professional cleaning specialist DC Assist.

DC Assist specialises in providing professional cleaning services for companies, groups and individuals. From daily cleans to deep cleans, the company's expert team has spent the last three years building the business and providing professional cleans to a multitude of venues.

Having won the Annual Chambers Business Award for ‘Start Up Business’ of the year in 2019, DC Assist started 2020 with industry recognition of its work and a desire to take its business to the next level.

DC Assist demonstrates health & safety compliance by joining SafeContractor.

Managing director at DC Assist  Dean Carpenter, said: “At DC Assist, we offer the very best services in our field by never settling for second best and continually having customer satisfaction as our top priority.

"All our services are tailored to our individual client needs, and our goal is to offer clients a professional cleaning service that leaves them not having to worry about a thing. This includes health & safety, which is why we joined Alcumus SafeContractor to demonstrate our health & safety compliance to new and existing clients.

"Achieving the UK-leading accreditation from SafeContractor evidences that our business is operating with a uniform standard in regard to health and safety compliance. The SafeContractor seal of approval assures our customers that we’re doing all we can to adhere to the very highest standard of health and safety and legal compliance and provides them with peace of mind when our teams carry out work on site.”

SafeContractor, the UK’s leading health and safety accreditation, verifies an organisation’s health and safety compliance and connects contractors to leading organisations through an online portal. This showcases their profile to hundreds of companies that only work with our 33,000 SafeContractor members, saves time and money when bidding on new tenders and gives them the peace of mind that their health and safety practices are compliant with the law.

Gemma Archibald, managing director of Alcumus SafeContractor, said: "No-one goes to work to get injured. Major organisations simply cannot afford to run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove that they have sound health and safety policies in place.

“SafeContractor plays a vital role in supporting our clients in meeting their compliance needs, whilst working with their contractors as they progress through the accreditation process.

"During the current economic impact of COVID-19 it’s more important than ever that contractors enhance their reputation and win work by continuing to demonstrate their commitment to delivering the highest standards of health and safety compliance.”

How DC Assist safely returned to work 

Following the coronavirus pandemic and its economic disruption, DC Assist adopted new COVID-19 secure working practices.

Dean Carpenter explained: “In accordance with government guidelines for creating a COVID-19 secure working environment, our skilled professionals are here to help our customers every step of the way. Throughout these unprecedented times, DC Assist has adapted to the situation.

"To continue safely offering our services taking away day to day stress for individuals and ensuring hygiene and cleanliness for our Commercial customers. We have increased our PPE to protect our staff and become more diligent in what is needed to ensure our customers are safe.”

As the UK economy looks to return to work, leading businesses are seeking cleaning companies to carry out essential work to protect their staff.
