Why is a risk assessment for cleaning needed?

Cleaning work can be risky for many reasons, and because of this it’s important to make sure that you and your staff are adhering to a safe work plan. A risk assessment helps cleaners, employed staff and contractors with an outline of what to be aware of when they’re working. 

You’ll probably come across some harmful chemicals when carrying out cleaning work that could be dangerous and cause injury when in contact with skin and eyes. There may also be working at height involved in cleaning, especially in an industrial setting where there may be areas that are out of reach. This will need to be defined for staff so they have proper training before undertaking work in those areas.

This cleaning safety risk assessment will help your cleaning company define any hazards and dangers that may arise. 

What are typical hazards of cleaning work?

Some of the most common hazards associated with cleaning work include:

Chemical cleaning products: Hazardous cleaning products can lead to health issues like dermatitis, urticaria, or respiratory problems.
