Anyone undertaking damp mopping must understand how to do so properly. Failure to do so can result in a variety of accidents and ill health, including slips, trips, and falls. When these occur, it can result in injuries to workers, customers, or the public and expose an organisation to costly claims.
Employers and managers of cleaners must ensure that anyone responsible for damp mopping has been provided with adequate training to protect themselves and others.
Slips, trips and falls account for the majority of non-fatal workplace injuries, according to the Health and Safety Executive. When these types of accidents occur, they can not just result in pain and suffering, but also significant costs to the employer, costing around £500m annually.
If your staff are responsible for damp mopping, it is essential that they are trained how to do so safely and without risk to others. The consequences of failing to prepare for health and safety risks associated with various cleaning activities can be disastrous for an organisation of any size.
This damp mopping training course helps to ensure ensure everyone’s safety and well-being by reducing unnecessary risks.
