  1. Floor Cleaning and its impact on Slips and Trips

  2. Slip and Trip Potential Model Environment People Contamination & obstacles Slip and Trip Potential Footwear Floor

  3. Identifying management problems • No-one available when contamination levels are at their worse or to clean up spills • Cleaners don’t know who to report problems to, or cleaning equipment is badly maintained. • Cleaners don’t know how to change settings and cleaning heads etc. • The floor has changed but the cleaning technique is the same

  4. An effective management system should include:- • Procedures for maintenance of floors and equipment • 2. Appropriate training and supervision • 3. Effective communications at all levels • 4. Procedures that ensure the correct cleaning regimes are chosen and are undertaken at the right time • 5. A monitor and review system for above

  5. Contamination and cleaning, • what to look for? • Spillages and contamination on the floors • Wet mopping of small spills • Scrubber dryer leaves a trail of water • Use of a squeegee to remove excess water after wet cleaning. • The brushing up of dusty contamination. • Floor feels slippery or looks contaminated or dirty, even though cleaning was recently carried out.

  6. Contamination and cleaning, what to ask. • Can contamination be stopped from reaching the floor? • What type of cleaning products and equipment are being used? • Is the cleaning method causing other health risks? • Is there an effective maintenance system for cleaning equipment? • How often is cleaning carried out? • How are spills removed? • How rough is the floor? • Are the cleaners trained and adequately supervised?

  7. Use of cones and warning signs • Restrict pedestrians from walking across a smooth floor that has been wet cleaned, until the floor is totally dry. • Signs can be an effective means of informing people of a spill, only if the spill is visible

  8. Preventing trip hazards • Promote the use of battery-operated equipment. • Reduce the operating length of the cable or cover it. • Use during quiet times or outside of normal work hours. • Cleaning equipment not to be left unattended, should be disconnected and safely stored when not in use. • Monitor cleaners to ensure they are following work and storage procedures. • Check reporting procedures are in place

  9. Summary of key messages • Effective cleaning requires a good management system • Cleaning can create slip and trip hazards • Stop pedestrian access to smooth wet floors • Floor contamination should be removed effectively
