Our Accreditations

Better for Our Associations

At Total Clean, we take our responsibilities to service standards and the environment very seriously and have attained an unrivalled number of key registrations, memberships and associations. These require adherence to strict codes of practice and are subject to external audits in order to maintain our compliance and ensure we are delivering the best care possible to our clients at all times.

As testament to our dedication to ensuring our accreditations demonstrate our full commitment to ensuring our clients can rely on our service, we have now upgraded our ISO and accreditations to those issued by UKAS. The United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) is the sole national accreditation body recognised by the British government to assess the competence of organisations that provide certification, testing, inspection and calibration services.

British Institute of Cleaning Science

We are proud to be Corporate Members of the British Institute of Cleaning Science (BICSc), the largest independent, professional and educational body within the cleaning industry, with over 5,000 individual and corporate members. Its mission is both to raise the standards of education in the cleaning industry, and to build awareness, through professional standards and accredited training, thereby:

  • Protecting the operative
  • Providing a clean and safe environment
  • Preserving assets
  • Promoting sustainability
  • Producing best practice

Total Clean is always among the first to adopt new standards and methodologies from the BICSc as they benefit our clients and therefore our business as a whole.

ISO Quality Management Policy

ISO 9001 provides a set of standardised requirements for a Quality Management System. Globally, over one million organisations are currently certified to this standard, meaning it is the leader not only in quality management systems, but within all management systems. The overall objective of the standard is to help companies meet statutory and regulatory requirements relating to the service while achieving excellence within their customer service and delivery.

CO2 Balance

CO2 Balance offers carbon footprint calculation, carbon management and reduction services and an ethical way to offset greenhouse gas emissions through Gold Standard energy efficiency projects. Total Clean subscribes to CO2 Balance as a voluntary extension to its environmental policies – a commitment to reducing our environmental impact is a key principle with this offsetting scheme.

We complete an annual audit and a Greenhouse Gas audit report is generated, including a number of suggestions on how to reduce our impact. Total Clean is then certified as ‘CarbonZero’ for the next year, helping to cement us as an environmentally sustainable option to our clients, providing excellent care at no cost to the environment or our world’s ecosystems.

The Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS)

Assessing suppliers’ health and safety competence can be a lengthy and time-consuming process. Suppliers can sometimes meet one buyer’s Health and Safety standards but not another. Being CHAS approved reduces duplication, as suppliers’ compliance is accepted by all CHAS buyers.

Total Clean has been assessed and approved by CHAS, thus demonstrating that we comply with the core criteria of health and safety law, and are approved to work for all CHAS buyers.

Infection Prevention Solutions

Total Clean has completed a Cleaning Partnership Programme with Infection Prevention Solutions, ensuring we fully understand the complexities of cleaning in different healthcare settings. Our cleaning operatives are trained by qualified Infection Control Nurses, providing them with the knowledge necessary to minimise the spread of infection through a healthcare environment. All our cleaning services and healthcare cleaning staff are monitored by Infection Control Cleaning Management on behalf of Infection Prevention Solutions, who undertake Environmental Cleanliness Audits and ATP swab testing at regular intervals.

As part of our commitment to delivering a safe and healthy environment for all our employees and all individuals affected by our activities, we are delighted to have achieved the SafeContractor accreditation.

Cyber Essentials Badge

Cyber Essentials

Cyber Essentials is an effective, Government backed scheme that helps to protect organisations, whatever their size, against a whole range of the most common cyber attacks.
