Health & Safety Requirements

COSHH Regulated Chemicals

Cleaning Operatives are only insured to use chemicals from recognised and Coshh regulated suppliers

COSHH Documentation on site

Documentation must be up to date and match all chemicals used by the cleaning operative(s)

Bleach NOT on site

Bleach has been illegal for over a decade except in households. H&S Officers have the right to test all site areas if this is present on site.

Correct Colour Coded Equipment

It is illegal not to supply cloths, mops & buckets of the same colour for designated areas. Closure for decontamination is the consequence of this not being followed.

Correct size mops for floor areas

Overcleaning with incorrect mop head causes soil transfer rather than cleaner areas.

Clean Equipment

Equipment attracts bacteria in their 1000's. All cleaning operatives are responsible for keeping this clean.

Industrial Equipment on Site

Recognised Industry Standard equipment is required for efficiency....NO Henry vacuum cleaners!

Machinery in Clean & Working Order

This becomes a health hazard to user and site if not kept clean.

Liability Insurance Certificate in Cleaning Cupboard

If this isn't present it is likely that the cleaning operative(s) is not insured. The site IS LIABLE for any claims.

Cleaning Cupboard Clean, Tidy & in order.

Bacteria is at its highest concentration in dirty cleaning cupboards, therefore the risk of contamination is significantly higher.
