WorkSafeBC is recommending all employers maintain a clean environment through routine cleaning processes that are appropriate for their industry and work practices.
- What is the cleaning schedule at your workplace?
- Who is responsible for cleaning?
- Do cleaners have appropriate supplies and training to do their job effectively and safely?
Document and follow cleaning practices that will reduce risks of communicable disease and food-borne illness. This may include more frequent cleaning of high touch surfaces, such as POS systems, bulk bin handles, garbage can lids, elevator buttons, high touch surfaces on bottled water filling machine, etc.
