Good cleaning and hygiene practices contribute significantly to the health and safety of the working environment and the two disciplines go hand-in-hand. That’s why for the first time, Health and Safety ’11 – North, (being held at the Reebok Stadium, Bolton on 5-6th October 2011) will host the new ‘Cleaning & Hygiene’ Zone, aimed at providing the latest information for health and safety professionals who are also responsible for specifying and purchasing cleaning products and services.
The Cleaning & Hygiene Zone, sponsored by the Cleaning & Hygiene Suppliers Association (CHSA), a trade association of suppliers to the cleaning industry representing over 200 manufacturers and distributors across the UK, will feature exhibits from a number of industry-leading providers of products and services. It also presents the opportunity for health and safety distributors who are considering expanding into cleaning supplies to find out further information, including details on membership with the CHSA. The main objective of the CHSA is to raise the long-term performance of member companies by assisting them in offering excellence of customer service to end-users.
Exhibiting within the Cleaning & Hygiene Zone are;Chemaide,who develop a range of specialist maintenance, cleaning and hygiene products for industrial, commercial and institutional applications;Sebo, manufacturers of the German vacuum cleaners specifically designed for cleaning professionals, andOmnipole,innovative maintenance and cleaning equipment manufacturers and worldwide distributors.
Also exhibiting at Health and Safety ’11 – North are;Kimberley-Clark, the global umbrella company of many household brands that provide trusted products designed to promote health, hygiene and well-being, andNilfisk-Alto, suppliers of powered cleaning equipment such as high pressure washers, vacuum cleaners and floor care equipment for the industry and the private sector.
Speaking about the relationship between the cleaning and hygiene and health and safety sectors, Secretary for the CHSA, Graham Fletcher said:
"There is a great synergy between cleaning, hygiene, health and safety, for example the threat of occupational skin care is overcome by the use of skin care programmes developed and sold by the cleaning and hygiene industry. Slips, trips and falls are controlled through the use of appropriate floor care preparations developed and sold by the cleaning and hygiene industry. And so it goes on. Every single business in the UK uses products or services of the type provided by CHSA members; therefore, we believe the new Cleaning & Hygiene Zone is relevant to anyone attending Health and Safety ’11 – North”.
Health and Safety Events Director, Tim Else said:
"We are pleased to be working in partnership with the CHSA. For a while now we have recognised the overlap that exists between both industries and we believe the Cleaning & Hygiene Zone will provide our visitors with additional products and services that are relevant to their jobs”.
