Pre-employment assessments for cleaners

Cleaners, janitors and housekeeping staff perform domestic and commercial cleaning services which include a broad range of physical activities performed in a range of different work environments such as homes, offices, industries, schools, shops and hospitals.

Cleaners are exposed to several health and safety risks in their varying work environments. Common hazards include injuries from manual tasks such as vacuuming, mopping, wiping surfaces, polishing, moving rubbish and furniture and equipment; accidents caused by slips, trips and falls; exposure to hazardous substances and electrical shock.
