Office and Commercial Cleaning - Health and Safety
Health and Safety is a top priority for every business, and rightly so. Business
Cleaning Services is no exception and we are fully committed to Health and Safety
Office and commercial cleaning in particular poses a concern for many of our clients.

“Key causes of accidents are slips and trips, manual handling and falls from height.
The main health risks are back injuries and occupational dermatitis. See links below

Cleaning services can present many of the above-mentioned risks from wet floors,
trailing cables, lifting equipment and stock, cleaning windows, and of course use
and storage of chemicals.
At BCS, we take a robust and straight forward approach to Health and Safety at work,
and to the application of H&S within the cleaning services that we deliver. Keeping
our staff, customer staff and members of the public safe is a crucial part of what
Method statements, risk assessments and COSHH assessments are provided for each and
every contract that we operate, and training and safe-working systems implemented.
BCS systems and control-measures naturally include PAT testing, PPE, training and
monitoring, and of course colour-coding to both help avoid cross contamination and
to promote good site hygiene.
