About Vacuum Cleaning Training

Cleaners who perform the task of vacuum cleaning must be able to do so safely, not only for themselves but also for anyone in the vicinity. Safe vacuum cleaning includes area preparation, assembly and inspection of vacuum cleaning equipment, and of course operation of the vacuum cleaner itself.

This Human Focus vacuum cleaning online training ensures employers that they are protecting their staff, meeting legal duties, and protecting themselves from liability risk.

Other hazards include electrical hazards and the spreading of germs and bacteria.
