Trained cleaning staff
We train all our cleaning staff in the prevention of Healthcare Associated Infections (HCAIs) through good practice. Our staff have a good working knowledge and understanding of cross contamination and how to prevent the spread of infection within a healthcare environment.
Our specialist cleaning teams use specially designed wet and dry cleaning methods to maintain cleaning standards. They’re also trained in prevention techniques, such as isolation cleaning and hand hygiene, to help prevent the spread of infection.
Cleaning high-risk clinical areas
All our staff comply with rules set by hospitals around cleaning very high risk, high-risk, significant risk and low risk areas.
We work with each individual trust to identify all risk categories, including:
- surgical theatres
- toilets and bathrooms
- general wards
- public thoroughfares
- day activity areas, and
- rehabilitation areas.
All our staff are trained in the use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). They also know how to safely dispose of all types of waste, including:
- offensive waste, and
- general waste.
We have a waste management service called OCS Wasteline, experienced in working in both complex and challenging environments.
Clinical, medical and dental waste management
Our clinical, medical and dental waste management services are offered by Cannon Hygiene, part of the OCS Group.
