The MHSWR(Work Health and Safety Regulations) 1999 states that, employers must undertake a risk assessment to assess the risks of safety and health of their employees and anyone else who might be affected by their cleaning activities. Also, if you have 5 or more employees, you should record the findings of your risk assessment.
What is an industrial cleaning risk assessment?
Definition: A risk assessment for an industrial cleaning company, is basically an examination of the type of work that will be carried out, and an exam of the environment in which the cleaning service will take place.
Why Are Risk Assessments Needed?
Risk assessments are useful because they can identify potential accidents before they happen and prevent ill health to employees, visitors, or the public.
What Happens If A Risk Is Identified During The Assessment?
If a risk is identified during the assessment, the industrial cleaning company needs to implement new measures, completely eliminate the risk or find out how it can be controlled.
Industrial cleaning companies have a legal duty where they have to record any type of significant findings found in the risk assessment.

During our first visit to an industrial/commercial property, our first job is to look for hazards. Hazards, by definition, is anything that has potential to harm.
