Swiftclean demonstrates ‘Science of Compliance’

15 April 2013

Swiftclean will be outlining the principles of the “Science of Compliance” with its package of expert outsourced services

The company’s service portfolio helps to safeguard FM managers from prosecution under health & safety and fire safety legislation, while also protecting the validity of buildings insurance.

“Facilities Managers have an increasing burden of legislation and regulations with which they must not only comply, but be able to demonstrate that they have complied,” explains Swiftclean managing director Gary Nicholls, who assisted in the authorship of TR/19, the recognised industry guide to good practice for the internal cleanliness of ventilation systems and ductwork cleaning. “We can help with fully compliant services and also with all important certified documentation.”

Swiftclean offers services which make the difference between safety and potential hazard, safeguarding life and limb and helping to provide a healthy indoor working and living environment. An audit trail is increasingly important for legal and fiscal reasons on facilities management, and rarely more so in the areas of legionella control, fire safety and the health and well-being of building occupants, whether housing association tenants or corporate executives.

Compliance calls for robust, tried and tested processes with documentation, coupled with regular, scheduled, effective cleaning, says Swiftclean, and this must be coupled with pre-clean testing and post clean reports to ensure and demonstrate that the work has been done to the required standard. This is more and more important against an increasingly litigious background, in which prosecutions for manslaughter have been carried out in the cases of both legionella and fire related fatalities.

“Just as the FM company’s client can’t be expert in property management, so the FM service provider will wish to use a dedicated expert like Swiftclean for some of the more niche specialised services, especially when it is a matter of potential criminal liability and safety, as well as one of quality and customer satisfaction,” concludes Nicholls.

Visitors to the Swiftclean stand will have the opportunity to discuss any kitchen related grease management issues with the Swiftclean team, discover the best way to comply with legionella control regulations through good air and water management, and seek advice from the company’s experts.
