Health & Safety Rundown

Risk Mitigation:  Our commitment to health and safety starts with a focus on reducing the risk of falls, a significant concern in window cleaning. Whether using ladders, scaffolding, or powered access equipment, we give top priority to the safety of our team members. This involves using safety harnesses, implementing fall protection measures, and providing comprehensive training.

Equipment Reliability: Our high-level window cleaning often requires specialised equipment, such as cradles, cherry pickers, or rope access systems. To ensure the safety of our staff and clients, we regularly inspect and maintain our equipment. This proactive approach minimises the risk of accidents resulting from equipment malfunctions.
 
Chemical Handling: Window cleaning may necessitate the use of cleaning chemicals. Our team is well-trained in the safe handling and storage of these chemicals. We equip our workforce with the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE), such as gloves and goggles, ensuring protection against potential chemical exposure.
 
Environmental Responsibility: We are dedicated to environmentally responsible practices. Our cleaning products and wastewater disposal methods strictly adhere to stringent environmental regulations. This safeguards not only our workforce but also the local ecosystem.
 
Weather Preparedness: Given the ever-changing British weather, safety remains a top priority. We closely monitor weather forecasts and make informed decisions to postpone work when adverse conditions, such as high winds or icy surfaces, pose risks to our team members.
 
Training Excellence: Our personnel undergo thorough training to ensure their competence in safe practices, equipment operation, and emergency procedures. Continuous education keeps our team up-to-date with the latest safety standards and regulations.
 
Client and Public Well-being: We consider the safety of not only our team but also our clients and the general public. We employ clear signage, barriers, and effective communication with building occupants to ensure the utmost safety during our operations.
 
Legal Compliance: We recognise that adherence to health and safety regulations is not only ethically important but also a legal requirement in the UK. By prioritising compliance, we protect our clients, and team members, and uphold our reputation.

At Lamont Cleaning & Support Services, our unwavering dedication to safety ensures that you receive top-tier window cleaning services without compromising on your well-being or legal compliance. Your satisfaction and safety are our highest priorities, and we take every measure to ensure a safe and successful cleaning experience.
