As part of our commitment to continuously improve the image of the cleaning industry, the DCBN, in partnership with the Domestic Cleaning Academy have been providing free training to solo cleaners and cleaning business owners. Over the course of the last four nights, nearly 200 cleaners have taken part in an online training workshop covering not only how to clean safely during the Covid-19 pandemic, but also learning about the basic requirements needed to legally operate in the cleaning industry.
With 60% of the attendees having had no previous training in this area, it has demonstrated how vital the support is that the Domestic Cleaning Business Network offers. We have provided comprehensive training on COSHH, PPE, Safety Data Sheets, Waste Carriers Licenses, Professional Products, Risk Assessments as well as understanding the basics about Coronavirus and safe infection control cleaning in domestic and commercial settings.
Every session has been interactive with breakout groups and cleaners not only learning about these subjects, but forming new friendships and support networks with each other.
