Cleaning in Schools and Colleges - Advice

Advice to Members: 

According to the Health and Safety Executive, sufficiently clean means that "workplaces should be regularly cleaned to ensure that dirt or refuse is not allowed to accumulate and spillages and deposits are removed or cleaned up as soon as possible.”

The frequency of this activity and standard of cleanliness will depend on the nature of the business. In addition, cleaning should be carried out "…by an effective and suitable method and without creating, or exposing anyone to, a health or safety risk.”
