Cleaner facilities say all the right things about your business and tend to be more productive, safer, and organised. Maintaining a clean and organised industrial site can be hard work and is not without its’ challenges however the rewards are truly worth it.
Here are a few of our cost-effective suggestions to maintaining a clean and safe industrial working environment.
Dust can be a major problem in factories and warehouses. Dust tends to accumulate with the constant use and operation of machinery, coupled with inflow from the outdoors and use of cardboard boxes and wooden pallets.
Small amounts of dust are relatively not threatening. When dust builds up however it can pose a serious hazard to employees reducing the air quality. It can also impair the functioning of industrial machinery and become a fire hazard.
The most effective way to keep dust at bay is by utilising exhaust and air ventilation systems. Heavy-duty vacuum cleaners also do a great job at picking up dust.
Lastly keeping your factory free from dust sources like cardboard and concrete can also be effective although this might prove tricky since they are popular materials in any industrial site.
Training Factory Staff
Factories unlike offices can tend to involve more intensive cleaning practices. With that in mind, it can good practice for your staff members to have some basic knowledge around operating cleaning equipment, cleaning practices and general organisation.
Providing seminars and workshops as part of the onboarding process that demonstrate the importance of a clean and orderly workspace can encourage employees to be more diligent during their time at work.
Purchasing Cleaning Equipment and Supplies
If your employees are expected to perform some routine cleaning practices, it is a good idea to have equipment and materials available on site.
Brooms, mops, brushes, dustpans, and disinfectant sprays are all generally inexpensive to purchase and are sufficient for routine cleaning practices. Having simple equipment like this always available means there is no excuse for employees not to stay on top of their responsibilities.
If you are considering purchasing all this equipment you might consider buying in bulk to try minimising your expenses. Being a factory, storage should not be an issue.
Hire an Industrial Cleaning Company
While your employees might be able to look after some routine cleaning, hiring a professional and dedicated industrial cleaning company can be a cost-effective means to make sure your offices, lunchrooms, changerooms, control rooms etc are maintained to the highest standards all year round.
Industrial cleaners can be scheduled during times and days that work with and or around your usual operating hours and can be set up on a frequent or semi-frequent basis dependant on your individual needs.
Warehouses, factories, production areas, mine sites and other large industrial locations bring a unique set of cleaning challenges when compared to office environments.
