Damp Mopping Training

This awareness level online training programme provides cleaners with an understanding of how to complete the task of damp mopping while minimising risk to themselves and others. Damp mopping is a common activity in workplaces with hardwood, vinyl sheets, ceramic or porcelain flooring. The task exposes workers and the general public to numerous hazards, including manual handling hazards; slips, trips and falls; and exposure to hazardous substances.

About Damp Mopping Training

Slips, trips and falls account for the majority of non-fatal workplace injuries, according to the Health and Safety Executive. When these types of accidents occur, they can not just result in pain and suffering, but also significant costs to the employer, costing around £500m annually.

If your staff are responsible for damp mopping, it is essential that they are trained how to do so safely and without risk to others. The consequences of failing to prepare for health and safety risks associated with various cleaning activities can be disastrous for an organisation of any size.

This damp mopping training course helps to ensure ensure everyone’s safety and well-being by  reducing unnecessary risks.

Why is Damp Mopping Training Important?

Employers must provide sufficient instruction and training to prevent the hazards associated with assembling cleaning equipment. This presents risks to the property, the cleaners themselves, and any clients or members of the public using the same space.

The risks associated with improper assembly or handling of cleaning equipment include:

  • Electrical burns
  • Shocks
  • Fires
  • Cuts or lacerations
  • Chemical burns
  • Damage to furnishings

Government regulation requires employers and employees to have safety in mind at all times, including when they follow procedures for maintenance of equipment.
