What is it they say, a ‘clean environment is a productive environment’? It’s a phrase that’s used throughout every industry for the simple fact that it is true.

A clean working space not only helps reduce staff sickness levels, as seen in numerous studies, but it also provides a clean and supposedly more efficient environment.

While many believe this statement to be true of offices and perhaps even retail environments, it should not be overlooked that warehouses are just the same.

Cleaning is a hugely important factor, however when it comes to warehouses, it takes a little more than a dusting of desk surfaces.

A Whole New Level Of Cleaning

What is essentially industrial cleaning in high spaces, should not be looked upon lightly. It’s an entirely different ball game of cleaning, and a rather specialist task that should be carried out by experts alone. 

Despite this, it hasn’t stopped many in the past attempting to carry it out themselves. Without the specialist equipment and highly-trained staff however, it’s not only dangerous but almost impossible.

And more often than not, due to it being such a mammoth task, it’s not uncommon for it to be overlooked entirely, despite it’s importance.

To give you a better idea of just how essential it is to hire professional help for your high level cleaning in warehouses, here’s a quick rundown.

Where work is carried out at height, every employer shall take suitable and sufficient measures to prevent, so far as is reasonably practicable, any person falling a distance liable to cause personal injury.

Dangers

There are very obvious dangers when it comes to cleaning at height. The health and safety of your staff is absolutely paramount.

In fact, the Work at Height Regulations of 2005 actually enforces a duty of care on employers, even the self-employed and any other person who has control over a working environment.

From facilities managers to building owners, you cannot ask untrained staff to begin cleaning at height.

Not only only are you putting them in danger, you’re putting everyone around them in danger too.

Laws

Risk Assessments

The law also states that any work carried out at height must be planned and organised. That means all of those spontaneous cleaning exercises on top of storage racks and guttering, must be stopped.

The law also states that those who carry out the work need to be competent and by this, they mean trained and fully risk assessed. Even those who may be in the process of being trained, still need to be supervised. 

Any work carried out at a high level must be thoroughly risk assessed. And any appropriate safety equipment needs to not only be specified but used correctly too.

From cherry pickers to cleaning equipment and solutions, everything must be acquired and used correctly.
