Local business LCS Northampton has been awarded accreditation from safecontractor for its commitment to achieving excellence in health and safety.

safecontractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises very high standards in health and safety management amongst UK contractors.

LCS is working for companies across the county and has been for over 20 years providing professional and quality cleaning. LCS work with some of Northampton’s leading businesses, including Travis & Perkins and Church’s Shoes.

The company’s application for safecontractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business.

“We are passionate about providing high quality cleaning and support services to businesses across Northamptonshire and beyond.” said the Managing Director of LCS David Lawrence. ”Being a member of safecontractor will enhance our ability to attract new contracts and shows our total commitment to being the best at what we do.”

John Kinge, technical director of safecontractor said, “Major organisations simply cannot afford to run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove that they have sound health and safety policies in place.”

“More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that LCS Northampton has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector.”

safecontractor plays a vital role in supporting our clients in meeting their compliance needs, whilst working with their contractors as they progress through the accreditation process.

Under the safecontractor scheme, businesses undergo a vetting process which examines health and safety procedures and their track record for safe practice. Those companies meeting the high standard are included on a database, which is accessible to registered users only via a website.

Over one hundred and seventy major nation-wide businesses, from several key sectors, have signed up to use the scheme when selecting contractors for services such as building, cleaning, maintenance, refurbishment or electrical and mechanical work.
