Wilson Contract Services has recently been awarded a contract by Euro Garages for canopy and fascia cleaning on each of its 366 sites. The programme is based on each site having one visit per year, and to minimise disruption the work is being carried out during night-time hours.
However, the majority of sites are 24-hour so operatives are cordoning off a section at a time to create a safe working area while ensuring minimal disruption to sites.
Operations director, Yvonne Gordon, explained that over the years Wilson Contracts has worked towards minimising working at height where possible, and has developed techniques to carry out this type of cleaning from the ground, reducing the health and safety risk to the workforce while still maintaining excellent standards. She commented: "It is always interesting bringing onboard new clients and being able to use our experience in the industry to make recommendations on how we can develop our relationship further by offering other services."
