Top Tips for Using Cleaning Supplies Safely

\"ScreenChoosing the right cleaning products for your facility is one of the keys to creating a healthy, safe space for your visitors and clients, but training your staff on using these products safely is also essential. Keep your workforce safe by following these three simple tips:

Never Mix Cleaning Solutions

The ingredients found in many cleaning products can trigger chemical reactions that when combined, yield dangerous chemical compounds. For example, mixing chlorine bleach with ammonia will produce a toxic gas that will put your cleaning staff at risk. Remind your staff members to always follow manufacturers’ guidelines for safe use.

Provide Staff with the Right Gear

Certain cleaning products may be harsh on the skin, and exposure can causes rashes, discomfort and other issues. Protect your cleaning staff by providing the right gear, including rubber gloves, googles and other personal protective solutions to keep them safe.

Choose Eco-Friendly Supplies

“Green” cleaning supplies aren’t just better for the environment, they are often better for your staff too. When possible, choose eco-friendly versions of your favorite floor cleaners, window cleaning solutions, disinfectants and more to keep your staff safe.
