Health & Safety for Office Cleaning Service

Health & Safety regulations for office cleaning are a very important part of running a contract cleaning business today.  It takes time to make sure all cleaning staff are up to date with safe cleaning methods, and put them into practice every time they clean.  It is very easy to get into bad habits.

Thames Valley Cleaning Services has recently gained an SSIP accreditation and a Safe Contractor accreditation.

Here at Thames Valley Cleaning Services we have always been very keen on a good Health & Safety culture.  Cleaning can be quite a difficult job to monitor.

You can check that the offices are cleaned properly but checking on Health & Safety practice can be tricky.  It does take a little bit of effort on the part of the cleaner to check that vacuum cleaners are working properly, that wet floor signs are put out and that the correct cloths are being used etc.

The best way to ensure all cleaners practice safe cleaning methods is through regular training.  All our cleaning staff receive a comprehensive induction in safe methods of work and best practice, before any cleaning is actually carried out.

Each visit we make to our offices and factories always includes a health and safety check.  We find the more often the cleaners are shown and reminded about safe cleaning methods, the more the cleaners take notice of the way things should be done, and so it becomes second nature to them.

So now you can rest assured that, if you decide to enquire about cleaning services, you can be sure that you will be in safe hands.  With the best will in the world accidents do happen but with a little help and a lot of encouragement most accidents can be prevented.
