Construction is a thriving industry here in the UK, with many residential, industrial and commercial projects continuously underway. While building work requires skilled tradespeople to perform specialist tasks, like bricklayers, plumbers and electricians, professional cleaners are also an asset to any construction scheme.
All construction sites in the UK must remain compliant with the rigid code and operating protocols established by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). Expert cleaners can help operations adhere to these rules by enhancing hygiene standards and keeping work areas clear to avoid accidents. Read on to find out the advantages offered by a professional cleaning service on-site.
Protecting worker health in construction
Since March 2020, when the pandemic started, there has been an increased awareness of the importance of hygiene standards in all working environments, including construction. Ensuring that adequate facilities exist on-site, including toilets and areas for washing and eating, is essential, but their maintenance is also vital.
It is understood that such communal areas used by construction workers will see higher levels of dirt and debris due to the nature of their duties. However, contract cleaning services can ensure they are kept at optimum hygiene levels to keep construction sites compliant.
Avoiding accidents and injuries
Constant site cleaning is crucial to sidestep the potential risks. A messy construction site can present trip hazards and slippery surfaces that often lead to injuries. Regular cleaning will keep on top of such issues. Specialist cleaners can ensure work areas and walkways stay clear from debris and spills, reducing accidents and ensuring sites pass HSE inspections.
Preparing to present
Finally, while a site in progress might be littered with scrap materials and tools, when it is time to hand over a building to its new owners, developers must ensure it is pristine. Professional cleaning teams can make sure sites are in perfect condition after work is completed and ready to display.
