New Health & Safety Procedures Implemented

As part of Oakpark Cleaning’s integration into the Vertas Group after our acquisition in August 2017, we have been working with the Group HSQE team to upgrade our health & safety practices in the workplace.

Oakpark Cleaning Services was already SafeContractor™ accredited prior to our move into the Vertas Group but we are now focusing on developing our safety processes and policies far beyond this standard with the help of the Vertas HSQE team. All staff now undergo a detailed induction which ensures that staff are competent with workplace hazards, manual handling and Health & Safety signage.

Our contract management teams are also tasked with delivering monthly ‘Toolbox Talks’ on a various aspect on Health & Safety, including Fire Safety, Driving Safely, and COSHH Regulations. This is supported by a structured and detailed reporting process for all hazards, ‘Near Misses’ and ‘Adverse Events’.

Operations Manager Steve Gray commented: “The Vertas Group is a great example of a company who invests considerable time and resources into developing and maintaining a safe workplace environment for all its employees. Our new colleagues at Vertas HSQE have provided huge support during our transition into the Group structure and the new processes implemented give us renewed confidence in our commitment to staff welfare as the first priority of our business.”
