Just one of the many standards that BICSc is best known for is colour-coding. We have been recommending the use of colour-coded cleaning and janitorial equipment within the cleaning and hygiene industry for more than 20 years.
Whilst many organisations do follow our recommended guidelines – is this enough to make a real difference?
The UK has legislation in place for food preparation, which is there to stop the spread of cross-contamination – we have been asking why there isn’t any legislation when it comes to cleaning.
Following a colour-coding system has many benefits, one being that it reduces the risk of cross-contamination. It can also make life easier for cleaning operatives……Now that’s worth shouting about, isn’t it?
