Manufacturing & Production Environments
Industrial Cleaning Contractors carries out a wide range of manufacturing cleaning services for an equally diverse sector of clients. As specialist manufacturing cleaning contractors we have gained considerable and extensive experience in this field and fully appreciate the demands on such facilities and the necessity to minimise disruption to the manufacturing processes. Clients range from food production facilities, heavy engineering, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, electronics, and paper mills to name just a few.
Manufacturing cleaning companies need to understand the environment they are working within. At ICC we will work with your production and manufacturing site management to ensure works are carried out safely and in a systematic way, whether it is working at weekends, evenings, shutdown periods or during your normal production times. We understand that continuity is not alway possible and that production demands can change at short notice, therefore we offer a flexible approach toward this type of works.
In one particular production environment our client produces spectacles lenses for a national company. Production is a 24 hour process for six and half days per week with very short lead-in periods. The smallest particles of contamination can produce defects on the product and therefore cleanliness of the environment is critical. ICC routinely carries out a full and comprehensive cleaning program to all the overhead services and structural surfaces, predominantly whilst production is being undertaken, this demands close cooperation and liaison with our site supervision and the site's management. ICC successfully completes the works over a two week period causing minimal disruption.
Warehouse environments and particularly operational ones are by nature inherently dangerous and familiarity with the workings of these environments is very important. For more than 22 years our management, site supervision and operatives have worked within these types of environment. We have seen considerable changes in the way works must now be conducted, primarily in the interests of increased safety awareness. We take our responsibilities very seriously, our management and staff are trained as to the following accreditation.
Management hold ‘CITB Management Site Safety Scheme Accreditation’
Site supervision hold ‘CITB Supervisor Site Safety Scheme Accreditation’
Cleaning operatives hold ‘CSCS’ cards
CITB accredited IPAF platform operator’s certificates.
PASMA certification for tower access construction.
Experienced site management and supervision.
Operatives are full time and directly employed by Industrial Cleaning Contractors.
Surveying & Costs.
ICC will survey the extent of any works, working with the client’s ‘Schedule of Works’ where necessary or make recommendations and provide a bespoke schedule. Based upon this information we will then provide a fixed lump sum cost clearly indicating the extent and limitations of works with no hidden extras, any exclusions will be clearly identified. Any additional items of cleaning not identified or agreed at the time of the survey will be priced individually, again on a lump sum basis.
Documentation & Procedures.
Prior to commence of any works would submit, for approval, a bespoke non generic ‘Site Specific Package’ including,
COSHH Risk Assessment, COSHH data sheets
Safety Induction, site specific
Produce CSCS Cards, IPAF Cards and PASMA Cards where applicable.
Operatives will read, acknowledge and sign our ‘Site Specific Package’ a copy of which will be supplied to the client. Throughout the work’s duration, site supervision will conduct routine ‘Toolbox Talks’ at regular intervals and our management will attend site at least once per week to ensure compliance of such is strictly adhered to.
Management & Supervision.
Our approach is to work with your site management, providing you with experienced site supervision and labour, all our operatives are full time employees, we do not use agency or casual staff. During the last 22 years we have never been contra-charged by any of our clients for delays, damage caused or otherwise. Our primary objective is to secure repeat business, we will only achieve this is if we complete your project safely, on time, on budget and without incident.
Why use us, it’s only cleaning?
How often have you appointed a contractor to undertake some work only to find out they turned up unannounced, without proper documentation or clear directives, did not have the correct personal protection, did not have the proper equipment to undertake the task, etc, etc. Our promise to you is that we will conduct your works in a safe, professional and efficient manner, with good management and supervision to support that. But as these are simply words, we would recommend you contact our existing and previous clients. Need a reference? We’d be happy to supply one.
Industrial Cleaning Contractors really are the experts when it comes to cleaning manufacturing and production facilities, but we also have a number of other services. From our years' of experience, we have been able to successfully complete jobs for a range of clients whether it is smoke and fire damage cleaning or more substantial industrial cleaning such as exterior building cleaning.
