The Health and Safety Executive provide guidance documents for duty holders (that is those with overall responsibility for any workplace) to use, however in many cases it is prudent to engage the services of a suitably qualified, trained and knowledgeable specialist. Certifact Services is that specialist for a diverse range of customers including facilities and maintenance contractors, and end user customers in commerce, manufacturing and educational facilities.
The International WELL Building Institute™ has developed the WELL Building Standard™ that is set to deliver a healthy environment for people in the building they occupy. Certifact Services are pleased to have been instrumental in undertaking the post construction sampling and reporting for both the air and water elements of the Standard. WELL Building concepts have been embraced in projects by Cundall and Arup and The Crown Estate and Great Portland Estates.
Reducing Cost of Remedial Cleaning
To communicate the importance of robust water hygiene management, Certifact have prepared a simple diagram to show how poor service can affect costs; impact on the day-to-day availability of the building to do its job (library, office, shop etc) and safeguard the wellbeing of staff and customers. Called ‘What Happens and What Happens If…’ the diagram is available for download in the Resources section on our website.
