Health & Safety
CITY Cleaning Services manages its health safety and environmental risks by maintaining policies, systems and processes designed to ensure compliance with the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 and all subordinate regulations and codes of practice. These systems are supported by an annual planning and review process and are fully integrated throughout the business. The business participates in the ACC Workplace Safety Management Practices (WSMP) Programme. CITY Cleaning Services was achieved Tertiary level (AS/NZS 4801) in 2011 and is currently accredited at that level until 30 September 20187. CITY Cleaning Services’ environmental aspirations are also reflected in HSE planning. The business was awarded the Enviro-Mark Diamond Standard in 2013, and currently maintains that certification. Enviro-Mark Diamond is equivalent to the ISO environmental standard.
The Health and Safety at Work Act 2015, which came into force on April 4 2016 has raised contractor H&S management as a key business issue CITY Cleaning Services’ clients. We have undergone two independent contractor prequalification processes through Impac PreQual achieving a 5 star safety rating, and through SiteSafe, achieving a SiteWise Green Certificate. A key component of CITY Cleaning Services HSE management is the development of a contract-specific Site Safety Plan which ensures that site specific risks have been identified and managed, and that there is an appropriate interface of contractor and client systems and procedures. This plan is developed collaboratively with CITY Cleaning’s clients and meets the requirements of the new legislation for a collaborative approach to managing Health and Safety where multiple PCBUs control a work environment.
CITY Cleaning Services has enhanced its commitment to achieving the required standards through the formal training of managers and supervisors who are responsible for leading health and safety management in the workplace. 45 supervisors and managers have now achieved the National Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety Level 3 or 4.
