Cleaning Risk Assessment FAQs

Are Risk Assessments Carried Out For Cleaning Products?

Yes, you should carry out a risk assessment for cleaning products used during the job at hand. Specifically, the risks associated with each product and risk prevention should be reviewed.

To further deep dive into the risks associated with cleaning products and chemicals, you should complete a COSHH assessment for each product. You can find a comprehensive range of COSHH assessments for products like a solvent cleaner, multi-surface cleaner and hand wipes on our website. 

How Often Should You Do a Cleaning Risk Assessment?

You should review your risk assessment at least once per year at a minimum. However, if certain circumstances have changed (for example, new equipment, or you are cleaning a new building), you should review and update your cleaning risk assessment sooner.
