27 Jul Julius Rutherfoord & Co’s Training Centre passes BICSc audit
The Julius Rutherfoord & Co’s Training Centre, based in Battersea, London, has passed the British Institute of Cleaning Science (BICSc) audit with flying colours.
BICSc commended Julius Rutherfoord & Co’s commitment to and their enthusiasm for raising standards in the cleaning industry.
Free to all Julius Rutherfoord & Co’s cleaning operatives, the award-winning Training Centre offers induction training as well as regular, ongoing development throughout a team member’s career at the company – all based on-site, at their place of work.
Julius Rutherfoord & Co’s BICSc Assessors and BICSc Accredited Training Centre are audited every year against BICSc standards. This involved an extensive, detailed check of the mandatory and basic cleaning tasks that are highly focused on safe systems of work, methodology, risk assessments and best practices.
The BICSc audit commended the company’s approach: “The team are very committed and enthusiastic about training and assessing BICSc skills. The audit was excellent, and the control of the documentation helped immensely. Their approach to the audit involved a lot of time and effort, and this is apparent.”
Chris Parkes, Julius Rutherfoord & Co operations director, said: “We have long celebrated the positive impact that apprenticeships and traineeships have on individuals, businesses and the economy, and are very proud to have a BICSc-accredited Training Academy at our Battersea home in London.
We firmly believe training should be free to all staff and offered locally to their place of work. Training also benefits our clients and the industry by sharpening our ability to provide even greater quality service and client interaction, as well as raising standards for health and safety and quality.”
