OUTCO is a reliable and experienced services provider for industry, with a proven track record in working with industrial facilities from logistics to infrastructure, commercial and petrochemical giants
OUTCO’s outdoor maintenance and compliance services are critical to UK industry for a number of reasons, including:
- Health and safety: Regular maintenance of outdoor areas can help to prevent accidents and injuries. For example, ensuring that walkways are slip-free in winter and that grounds are safe can help to prevent slips, trips, and falls.
- Risk Management: Proper maintenance and compliance practices also serve as a form of risk management. By identifying and addressing potential issues early on, businesses can avoid costly and reputation-damaging incidents.
- Environmental protection: Outdoor maintenance can help to protect the environment by preventing pollution and contamination. For example, regularly sweeping up spills and leaks can help to prevent pollutants from entering the water supply. The UK places a strong emphasis on environmental protection and sustainability. Compliance with environmental regulations is essential to minimize the environmental impact of industrial activities. Proper maintenance can also prevent leaks, spills, or emissions that could harm the environment, water sources, and wildlife.
- Operational Reliability: Regular maintenance and compliance help ensure that industrial facilities and equipment remain in good working condition. This minimizes downtime due to unexpected breakdowns, which can be costly and disrupt production schedules.
- Property damage prevention: Regular maintenance can help to prevent damage to property. For example, repairing cracks in pavements can help to prevent them from becoming bigger and causing more damage.
- Increased productivity: Well-maintained outdoor areas can help to improve productivity by creating a safe and comfortable working environment. For example, employees are less likely to be distracted by hazards if the area is clean and tidy.
- Compliance with regulations: Many industries are subject to regulations that require them to maintain their outdoor areas in a safe and clean condition. For example, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) requires businesses to ensure that their premises are safe for employees and visitors.
