HEALTH & SAFETY/ENVIRONMENT
CAS Contract Cleaning place great emphasis on ensuring a safe working environment for its employees and the general public.
We work in partnership with Alastair White Associates who act as our Health & Safety consultants.
Our Health & Safety Policy and COSHH Risk Assessments are prepared by Alastair White to meet the specific needs of our business. This enables us to provide our employees with a safe and healthy working environment.
Alongside an initial Health & Safety introduction held in-house with all new recruits, Alastair White holds training days for all staff. On completion, each employee receives a certificate of the topics covered during the training day.
CAS staff are fully uniformed and provided with protective equipment where necessary. All company vehicles carry a first aid kit and any accident is fully documented.
Our window cleaning team operate a reach and wash system which allows them to clean windows up to 60 feet high from ground level eliminating the use of ladders thereby reducing the risk of serious accidents.
CAS management and staff are committed to providing a safe environment for all employees and the public whilst cleaning is in progress.
We strive to use environmentally friendly cleaning products that will deliver not only great results for our customers, but safe and hazard free products for our users and the environment. Our solution choice carries the Ecolabel certification ensuring we meet the highest environmental standard.
After many trials we have opted for the most effective chemical that has surpassed Ecolabel certification, January 2018 standards. This range is formulated to target specific surfaces delivering immediate cleaning results on a wider range of surfaces than that found with traditional harsher chemicals.
All company vehicles are regularly maintained to ensure the minimum CO2 emission available. All team routes are carefully planned to keep our carbon footprint to a minimum.
As part of our ISO 14001 Environmental Management commitment, CAS have targeted that 10% of the fleet will be Electric/Hybrid vehicles by 2020.
