Cleaning

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.

During the development of the Belgian tool 'OiRA Cleaning', the potential risks associated with the cleaning industry have been put under the microscope and have shown that companies and their workers need to be more attentive to the risks they incur. These risks are for example related to slips and trips, cleaning at height, the client and os on. 'OiRA Cleaning' is the result of intensive collaboration between FPS Employment, Labour and Social Dialogue, the CSC, the FGTB and the UGBN.

Premises cleaning services

This tool deals with companies within the cleaning services sector. The main difficulty of these companies is that employees must clean the offices of other companies and therefore, it is more difficult to assess all risks at their workplaces. The tool is focused on the hazardous works, including working at heights during the cleaning of the big windows, the use of chemicals at work and so on. The tool can also be used by companies which have their own employees/cleaners.
