It’s here – Our all new and long-awaited publication Standards & Best Practice

At a time when Cleaning & Hygiene is a top agenda item, we can only reiterate the importance of standards for the industry, they are not to be underestimated.  With contributions from highly regarded industry experts, we have combined intelligence, experience and knowledge, which when followed will become an integral part of your organisation’s overall performance. Contents include:

  • BICSc recommended colour-coding
  • The Cleaning Professional’s Skills Suite explained
  • ‘BICSc Outcome Criteria’ learn an effective and efficient way of measuring cleanliness and what is and isn’t acceptable.
  • ‘BICSc Compound Productivity Rates’ provide a standardised figure for calculating time needed to complete a cleaning operation.

Standards, across all professional disciplines, originate from the knowledge and experience of industry experts. Often they are used as a proficiency tested by examination through education or training. In this case this is a means to simplify an agreed way of delivering cleaning methodology.

Many dimensions exist within the professional cleaning & hygiene world. Standards and Best Practice offers a wealth of knowledge and explains how the BICSc ethos and principles of cleaning can be adapted to suit a professional cleaning company.
