Why You Need to Take an Industrial Cleaning Course

December 15th, 2017 - by Blueshark Design

This is an introduction to industrial cleaning and will give employees, managers and small businesses a good all-round grounding in the industry.

Safety, Risk Assessments & Method Statements

COSHH stands for ‘Control of Substances Hazardous to Health’. As an employer or operator, you need to know about the COSHH regulations that apply to various cleaning materials and methods. Not only that, but if you’re carrying out cleaning at a site where hazardous materials are in use, you need to know about them, and how to protect your workers.

For example, if the hazard is dust or gas, it could affect cleaning operatives on site. This course tells you what you need to know about this and gives you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have. Part of protecting yourself or your workers against hazards, is supplying them with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). The course will explain what types of PPE clothing and equipment are available and how to use them for different kinds of jobs.

Once you know what the hazards are, you can develop your risk assessments and method statements – the course will show you how to do these.

The industrial cleaning course covers kitchens and extractor units, windows, gutters and drains. It also looks at deep cleaning, and the use of industrial machines.

The Cleaning Business

Whether you’re a sole trader or a manager, an important aspect of working in the cleaning industry, is being able to price jobs accurately. The course covers how to produce estimates and bids that are realistic but competitive.

Managers will benefit from the course discussion on how to manage cleaning operators and jobs. Equally, if you’re entering the industry as an employee, you need to know about training opportunities and the different qualifications that exist, and these topics are also covered.

This course is an ideal starter unit, and to follow it, UK Commercial Group have a number of more specialist training courses to enhance your skills and knowledge in specific areas.
