A guide to COSHH in cleaning

Cleaning is an essential aspect of controlling the spread of infections around all workplaces. Infection prevention aims at keeping your workforce free from ill-health, particularly from harmful bacteria and viruses.

When completing cleaning and disinfection tasks, it’s vital that you use the correct product in the correct way to get the best results.

There is currently an increased need for cleaning and sanitising in all workplaces due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, with the use of new products, often involving staff that aren’t necessarily familiar with them, it’s important now more than ever, to make sure those using the substances are trained in their safe use, storage and disposal and this is where your COSHH (short for the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health) risk assessments come in.
