Carpet Cleaning Risk Assessment

UK law requires that all businesses in the carpet cleaning industry complete a carpet cleaning risk assessment, prior to work commencing. This is a legal requirement.

We can provide you with leading health and safety consultants who will ensure your business is fully compliant with the relevant health and safety laws.

Following the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974, UK law requires that all employers and the self-employed protect their employees’ health and safety ‘as far as is reasonably practicable’ by completing a risk assessment. In the industry of carpet cleaning, regulations such as the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) also apply.

In the event that an adequate carpet cleaning risk assessment has not been completed, the employer will be held accountable. Consequently, the employer will be liable for any fines or compensation claims that may occur. HSE can also prosecute if the employer fails to amend breaches of health and safety within a given time scale. Therefore, it is essential that if your business employs carpet cleaners, you undertake a carpet cleaning risk assessment now.
