Why is it important for a cleaning company to have a Health & Safety policy?

A cleaning company or company cleaners need to have a Health & Safety  policy in place to make sure they’re compliant with Health & Safety laws and regulations and avoid legal penalties or other consequences. 

Health & Safety policies also make sure  all members of staff are safe, and keeps you liable by making sure you are providing your employees with the correct safety measures, PPE and controls.

What are the risks of cleaners not following a Health & Safety policy?

Cleaners face risks every day. Some of the most common risks in cleaning include long-term back injuries from working for a long time and occupational dermatitis. However, it is imperative to be aware of other risks which include:

  • Slips and trips from wet surfaces.
  • COSHH considerations working with cleaning chemicals. Are you supplying the correct PPE, for example masks to stop them breathing in fumes, goggles to protect the eyes and gloves to protect the skin.
  • Working at height when cleaning – is the area safe? Are guard rails set up to protect workers from falling?
