Training for Cleaners in Education Facilities, School, Colleges, Universities

At first glance the cleaning in education facilities seems mirror the cleaning requirements in offices and general janitorial cleaning, however, the nature of the working environment is very different from offices. The way children, young adults and adults use and move around the buildings are very different from offices. The foot traffic is typically much higher, and more concentrated in certain areas, children and young adults are much less cautious. The type and amount of soiling is different. The degree of vulnerability to harm is much greater in children and young adults.

The two most important roles in cleaning are keeping a safe and clean place. Safe by reducing the day-to-day risks, and maintaining an appearance that ensures a pleasant place to study and work. Staff and parents must have the confidence that the cleaners can keep a safe and clean place.
