Staff Training

Health and Safety

Without good staff training, consistently high standards will not be achieved.  Moreover, compliance with health and safety, security, fire precautions and other site rules will not be attained.  Our Managers are IOSH trained to uphold H&S and trained to manage and motivate their team to get the best from them and increase staff retention.

All cleaning staff are thoroughly trained on cleaning methodology, product use and equipment use for best results.  Health and safety training must be undertaken and will include COSHH (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health), manual handling, PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) including appropriate footwear, warning signage, electrical appliances, first aid, fire precautions and security.

In staff training all staff are fully briefed on fire precautions and evacuation procedures in the event of fire at the premises.  This will include pointing out the importance of signing in/out (not just for a record of attendance and time keeping).  In addition, any other site specific rules and security issues will be addressed.

Staff training is thorough and comprehensive. It includes:

  • Performance of cleaning tasks
  • Use of cleaning equipment
  • Infection control and colour coding and hygiene
  • Manual Handling
  • Fire procedures, Health and Safety, Site Orientation
  • Security and Confidentiality
  • Cleaning products and chemicals, their safe use and handling (COSHH)
  • Use of appropriate protective clothing
  • Environmental awareness, handling, bagging, recycling and appropriate disposal of waste
  • Cleaning, care and storage of equipment
  • Incident/accident and illness reporting

We can arrange for DBS checking and CASP training for operatives when required.
