PROTECTION OF STAFF, CLIENTS AND PUBLIC MEMBERS
In order to prevent cross contamination, MCS Group implements a strict colour coding of cleaning materials. This includes cloths, mops and buckets.
Cross contamination is a real danger in any cleaning operation. MCS implements a strict Health and Safety policy to prevent this.
In accordance with our Health and Safety policy, each site is evaluated and risks assessed on all areas to do with cleaning, from fire hazards to equipment and storage of materials.
Where inadequacies are identified, a corrective action or controlling measure is identified and put in place to minimise any future risks.
PAT(Portable Appliance Testing) New cleaning items, such as floor scrubbers and vacuum cleaners are PAT tested prior to delivery to site.
