Cleaning Risk Assessment FAQs

Are Risk Assessments Carried Out For Cleaning Products?

It would be best to carry out a risk assessment for cleaning products used during the job. Specifically, you should review the risks associated with each product and risk prevention.

To investigate the risks associated with cleaning products and chemicals further, 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. However, if certain circumstances have changed (for example, new equipment or cleaning a new building), you should review and update your cleaning risk assessment sooner.
