Learn Something New Every Day: Training Can Help You Stay Ahead

TrainingIt’s quite easy to think that having a team of cleaning staff is pretty straightforward, and just let them get on with the job at hand, but have you considered that your staff might want or need some extra training?

There are any number of ways that you can make your staff feel valued, and keeping them up-to-date on the latest cleaning methods, techniques and equipment is an important one. A quick search of the internet will bring up a range of training providers, offering courses from basic to advanced, at a range of prices. It may seem like a big investment, but it just may be the best investment you will ever make.

But what should you expect from a good training course? We’ve done a roundup of what is available, and think we have a pretty good list of requirements:

  • Health and Safety for cleaners and other staff members
  • Visual Inspection of commonly missed areas
  • Where to use water and when to use other cleaning substances
  • Cleaning as part of a team
  • Use of appropriate tools
  • Use of detergents and cleaning agents
  • Use of cleaning equipment and machinery
  • How to clean certain materials to avoid damage
  • These are the very basics that should be taught on any training course aimed at cleaning staff – can you think of any more that would be important to your business??
