About cleaning accidents

There are many scenarios in which a cleaner could sustain an injury or illness in the workplace. Some of these include:

Slips, trips and falls

Cleaners are at risk of falling over belongings strewn over floors in houses, as well as wires in offices. Spilt liquids in can also pose a danger.

Falls from height

The dusting and cleaning of high shelving, windows and ceilings may involve the use of a step ladder. This could result in a fall from height, which is one of the most common causes of injury in the workplace and the biggest single cause of fatal work accidents.

Head injuries

Unsecured shelving or fixtures could cause a serious head injury if they were to fall. Touching an unstable or overloaded shelf could cause items to fall onto your head, with the possibility causing a serious head injury.

Burn injuries

If you work in private homes, you could be at risk of burns from electrical appliances that are faulty or left on by forgetful home owners. Hot pots and pans lying around in the kitchen could also cause unnecessary workplace injuries.

Needle injuries

Although staff should clear away medical waste as they work, if you are a cleaner in a hospital, you may have to deal with disposing needles and clinical waste, which can put you at risk of infection and other injuries.

Occupational illness

Dusty conditions are an occupational hazard, as is contact with a range of cleaning products, but both of these things can put you at risk of occupational illnesses, such as asthma and eczema. Take preventative measures like wearing masks and gloves while working.
