Cleaning products, when used properly, can significantly improve the hygiene and safety of any living or working environment. However, if not handled properly, these products do have the potential to cause harm or injury. For this reason, cleaning staff and all people who work with these chemical cleaning products must be aware of the safety tips to follow while handling them.
To ensure the health and safety of all cleaning staff, and to be sure that they are cleaning safely at all times, keep in mind these essential tips for handling cleaning products:
Store all cleaning products safely
The safe storage of cleaning supplies is one of the most important aspects of ensuring health and safety for the staff. Cleaning chemicals must be stored in a well-ventilated area, away from any HVAC intake vents. This way, fumes if any, can be prevented from circulating to other areas. The container caps or lids should always be properly closed to prevent leaks or spillage.
