How can ISO certification help your cleaning business?

ISO certified management systems can help you improve processes, reduce costs, and enhance customer confidence in your services. Gaining ISO certification demonstrates your commitment to quality and employee training. This is turn can help you win tenders and retain existing customers.

Our professional consultants have been helping businesses like yours around the world implement ISO standards for over 20 years. We offer a fast and cost effective route to ISO certification. We can also advise you on the most appropriate standard for your business.

Which ISO standards are best for my cleaning business?

The three main standards we recommend for cleaning companies are: OHSAS 18001, ISO 9001 and ISO 14001.

Many cleaning companies work on premises that are not under their direct control. This makes it vital that they have a robust health and safety management system in place to protect employees and contractors working off-site. The internationally recognised OHSAS 18001 management system ensures you have the appropriate processes in place to prevent accidents, meet your legal obligations and reassure your clients.

ISO 9001 is another great standard for cleaning companies because it demonstrates you have a competent team and value your clients’ needs. This can help you win new business and retain existing business. Its simple ‘plan-do-check-act’ process will also help you drive continual improvements and reduce costs.

The ISO 14001 standard demonstrates your commitment to protecting the environment. It will help you to evaluate the environmental effect of all your products and activities. As well as helping you reduce waste, save money and comply with environmental regulations, it will also support continual improvements in your business performance.

What are the benefits of ISO certification?

ISO certification proves that your company’s ISO management system has been independently checked and verified against the relevant standard. This demonstrates to clients that you comply with industry best practice, all relevant legislation and their own business requirements.

Further benefits include:

  • More efficient delivery of products and services
  • Higher quality and continually improving services
  • Fewer accidents and lower costs
  • Employees committed to maintaining quality across your business.
