Final assessment sees CrestClean personnel pass ‘with flying colours’
Health and safety came under close scrutiny for CrestClean personnel being assessed as part of their final training to become competent cleaners.
The Invercargill team members were attending a Module 2 course delivered by Ashneer Datt on behalf of the acclaimed Master Cleaners Training Institute.
Also on hand was the training organisation’s CEO Adam Hodge, who says he was impressed with the commitment and attention to detail shown by the CrestClean business owners.
Health and safety is a core component of the course. “This is a very important aspect and is an integral part of our training for all personnel,” says Adam.
“Legislative requirements around health and safety are continuously changing and it’s vital that we keep our personnel up to date and fully compliant.”
One of the practical refreshers that was included in the assessment process was being able to demonstrate the correct use of a vacuum cleaner.
“Any electrical equipment has the potential for serious harm, so we have to ensure our personnel are working in a correct and safe manner and all their equipment is in order,” says Adam.
“They have to check that the electrical safety certificates are in date for their vacuum cleaner and all its fixtures and fittings are in good order and the airflow is working properly.”
CrestClean’s Invercargill Regional Manager Glenn Cockroft also attended some sessions of the assessment course, which leads to the Certificate in Commercial Cleaning Level 2.
“This shows the importance and significance that our senior CrestClean personnel put on having teams who are trained to the highest standards,” says Adam.
Glenn was delighted when all his CrestClean team members passed their assessment with flying colours.
“It gives me full confidence that all our teams are highly skilled in all aspects of their work. Our customers can be assured they will receive a quality service.”
