This tool deals with general office cleaning. Office cleaning is performed in different work environments in various kinds of buildings. Therefore the types of risks to which cleaning workers are exposed are also specific to the premises they work in. Should the risk assessment be carried out in offices located in specific premises like laboratories, hospitals, etc. additional risks would need to be considered (for instance exposure to biological risks, radiations, etc.). This tool has been developed at EU level and may serve as a basis when developing an OiRA cleaning tool at national level. This implies that specific changes are needed for national adaptions (e.g. national legislation). The solutions the tool offers are meant to be understood as suggestions.
