Safe Storage of Cleaning Equipment & Materials Training

At the end of any cleaning shift, all of the equipment and chemicals used for the day’s task must disassembled, cleaned and put in their proper place or disposed of. Ensuring this is done in the right manner protects the health and safety of the work environment. It prevents damage to equipment and property and ensures that everything is in place and ready to go for the next shift.

This storage of cleaning equipment online training course is an awareness level course that provides cleaning staff with a vital understanding of this key area.

About Safe Storage of Cleaning Equipment & Materials Training

A failure by cleaning employees to follow storage practices increases the risk to the health and safety of the cleaners as well as other parties. Improper storage can also result in costly claims and damage to property and equipment.

Employers of cleaning staff have a legal duty to provide employees with the necessary information in instruction to work safely. This programme will help to maintain compliance under the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations (COSHH) and other legal guidelines.

Why is the Safe Storage of Cleaning Equipment & Materials Important?

In order to work safely, cleaners must understand best practice when it comes to storing the equipment and materials that they use every day.

It has been estimated that around 13,000 deaths per year in the UK are due to past exposure to chemicals and dust at work, according to the Health and Safety Executive. Both are commonplace in the cleaning industry.

Safe storage of cleaning equipment and materials will also prevent access and egress hazards to clients or the public. For instance, blocked entryways which prevent others using the location from entering or exiting.
