Cleaning and infection control

Cleaning and infection control
The Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Code of Practice on the prevention and control of infections) states all providers of healthcare and adult social care provide and maintain a clean and appropriate environment in managed premises that facilitates the prevention and control of infections.
Correct cleaning procedures and infrastructure are integral to achieving adequate infection prevention and control. Here at The Works Commercial Services we take all aspects of cleaning seriously and are passionate about leading the way when it comes to standards and compliance.
Key points to enable success:
  • Monthly cleaning inspections and production of cleanliness scores – Carried out by one of the company directors or the Head of Cleaning.
  • Cleaning Schedules – Detailing required actions and frequency
  • Training – It is essential that staff are trained and competent 
  • Reporting – Clear and effective routes of feedback on all aspects of cleanliness and building fabric faults
  • Adequate resources – Staff must have access to adequate equipment and materials
  • Clear and communicated policies on infection prevention – E.g. Guidance on colour coding and prevention of cross contamination

Shelley | Whyte

Our organisation have been using The Works cleaning service since November 2015, at two of our Centres.

The standard of cleaning is good and the team are always flexible. Darren and Justin are very supportive, and are good at resolving any issues that may arise out of hours; including water leaks and problems with the alarm system!

Additionally their support in arranging cover cleaners, at sometimes very short notice, has been excellent.
