When you’re managing a busy factory, a regular cleaning schedule may be the last thing on your mind. However, for factories potential hazards, neglecting cleaning can lead to severe health and safety violations. Let’s take a look at some ways in which commercial cleaning services can help improve your factory’s health and safety.
Meet regulation standards
According to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), even slips and trips cost industries over £500 million per year. So why take the risk? In complying to industry regulations, you can ensure that you minimise expenditure and keep your employees safe. According to the UK Government’s ‘The Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992’ legislation, your floors must be suitable for the type of work undertaken and kept in good condition. Equally, all employers are responsible for their employee’s health and safety in the workplace. You can attain both of these regulations with routine cleaning and maintenance to your factory.
Routine cleaning schedules are essential in improving the long-term health and safety of your factory. In planning, you need to distinguish between a regular cleaning routine and the occasional deep clean your facilities require:
In between your scheduled deep cleans, you need to keep on top of things. The schedule will include removing debris, clearing mess or dust, and clearing up spills immediately.
As dirt and grime buildup over time, you need deep industrial cleans to help maintain your machinery’s productivity. This type of maintenance will take several hours or even days, depending on the scale of your operation, and will clean everything intensely.
