Representatives of the Health and Safety Executive and the UK's cleaning industry met last month to set up a new liaison forum. The cleaning industry is a major employer in the UK, and this first meeting is a major step in driving forward improvements in health and safety.

The forum brings together a wide range of interested parties drawn from employers, trade associations, trade unions, manufacturers and those using cleaning services. It has made commitments to bring about improvements in health and safety through, for example, developing training for employees and establishing best practice for cleaning. The forum will also provide information for the users of cleaning services so that they are aware of standards for professional cleaning and understand their obligations to employees and customers.

Gavin Howat, HSE Inspector, said:
'Cleaning touches everybody's life in some way or another. Whether you work in an office, go to school or shop in the local supermarket, you have an interest in safe, effective and professional cleaning. The forum is fortunate in having such a wide and knowledgeable membership. This will really help drive forward improvements in health and safety in the cleaning industry.'

HSE has agreed to participate in the seminar sessions planned for the Cleaning Exhibition in March 2005.
