School Cleaning and Safe storage of 
Equipment & Materials 


Supplies

All hazardous substances used for cleaning within schools must be stored appropriately and must not be accessible to the users of the building, ie, not stored in teaching areas, staffrooms or toilets or where students may have access to them.

By ensuring a well-maintained and organised cleaning storage area, cleaning contractors can further increase the safety of the school by ensuring: hazardous materials are out of the reach of young children but remain easy to access by the cleaners (ie, not stored above head height); containers are not left open; there is suitable ventilation where required; warning signs are used correctly; all equipment and materials are labeled correctly; heaviest equipment is stored at the lowest levels; storage areas are dry and not immediately next to a heat source; and hazardous substances are not overstocked.

In addition to ensuring that cleaning contractors store equipment and materials effectively, it is also necessary that they receive sufficient training about the safe and correct disposal of hazardous products and materials. At Just cleaning our cleaners have undergone extensive training in a range of different areas before they are allowed to work on contracted schools. Plus our processes and systems facilitate back-of-house procedures that include Area Manager and Supervisor daily checks and visits so you can talk with a ‘real person’ when required.
