When considering the introduction of staff training within your own organisation, it is important that you consider the job you are taking on. For instance, in order for cleaning operatives to properly identify the correct product to use on any given surface, they must have an understanding of why the product cleans, how the product can be applied, how the surface being cleaned can be affected and the standard that can be achieved. To be able to do this, knowledge of all of the various components that make up an efficient cleaning regime is imperative.

Depending on the seriousness of any injury sustained, there may be a need to report the incident to the Health and Safety Executive. This can be done by a ”responsible person” contacting the HSE direct for a Form 2508 within 7 days of the accident taking place. Alternatively, the form can be completed on-line at the Health and Safety Executive web site www.hse.gov.uk. These are called “Notifiable Events”.
An accident can be defined as a “chance occurrence” or an “unforeseeable event”. Although this is the case in theory, within the cleaning industry, this is very rarely the case in practice. It appears that in the increasingly litigious society in which we live, someone is always to blame! As such, employers must take all necessary precautions to ensure that the risk of accidents occurring in the workplace is significantly reduced.
