Calderdale & Huddersfield Solutions Recertifies to CIMS

August 5, 2019

Calderdale & Huddersfield Solutions Ltd. (CHS), part of Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust, has recently recertified to the Cleaning Industry Management Standard (CIMS), earning a CIMS with honors designation. The certification is valid for the next two years. The initial certification was achieved in 2017.

To earn CIMS certification, the U.K.-based subsidiary underwent a comprehensive assessment by a third-party CIMS accredited auditor. During the audit, CHS demonstrated its compliance with the five core principles of the standard: quality systems; service delivery; human resources; health, safety, and environmental stewardship; and management commitment.

 “Going again through the full CIMS certification program conveys our continuous commitment to excellence,” said Lorina Cragg, head of facilities at CHS. “We are proud to have in place a platform for delivering a consistent, high-quality service for our patients. CIMS offers us a foundation which clearly stipulates what an organization should have in place to provide a professional, successful, and customer-faced operation.”
