Top Safety Accreditation for MCS Cleaning & Maintenance Limited

7 April 2016 / post on Uncategorized


Local business MCS Cleaning & Maintenance Limited has been awarded accreditation from Safecontractor for its commitment to achieving excellence in health and safety.

Safecontractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises very high standards in health and safety management amongst UK contractors.

Safecontractor accreditation will enhance the company’s ability to attract new contracts and its commitment to safety will be viewed positively by its insurers when the company liability policy is up for renewal.

Safecontractor is applicable to most sectors although it is particularly relevant to food manufacture, property, facilities management, retail and leisure sectors, all of which are big users of contracted services.

John Kinge, technical director of Safecontractor said, “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.”

“More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that MCS has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector.

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.”

Under the Safecontractor scheme, businesses undergo a vetting process which examines health and safety procedures and their track record for safe practice. Those companies meeting the high standard are included on a database, which is accessible to registered users only via a website.

Client-organisations who sign up to the scheme can access the database, enabling them to vet potential contractors before they even set foot on site. These clients agree that, as users of the scheme, they will engage only those who have received accreditation.

Over 210 major, nation-wide businesses, from several key sectors, have signed up to use the scheme when selecting contractors for services such as building, cleaning, maintenance, refurbishment or electrical and mechanical work.

After undertaking a rigorous tendering process, MCS are proud to announce its new cleaning contract in Leicester city. NIACE have appointed MCS Cleaning & Maintenance to provide its cleaning services to its prestigious Head office located in Leicester City Centre. NIACE is a leading educational charity dedicated to promoting adult learning and was founded in 1921. It is the main advocacy body for adult learning in England and Wales and probably the largest body devoted to adult education in the world. NIACE contacted several service providers with a view to awarding the new cleaning contract to a company that operates in line with their ethics.

‘We are really proud to announce that NIACE has chosen MCS as their cleaning supplier’ says MCS Managing Director Tim Blacknell. ‘ The tendering process was extremely thorough as NIACE were looking for a strong long-term partner and we will do all we can to deliver their expectations’.

MCS have worked hard to obtain ISO 9001 and 14001 accreditation which was pivotal on tendering as it showed their commitment to a quality service and the Environment. Along with their ethical positions on recruitment and staff welfare MCS are looking forward building on their Leicester City Portfolio.
