    Injuries for cleaners: What are the risks of being a cleaner?

    If you work as a cleaner, you probably think that you’’ve got a relatively safe job. While other industries may be more dangerous, this doesn’t mean that cleaning comes without risks. Potential injuries for cleaners include:

    • Slips, trips and falls
    • Injuries, such as skin irritation and burns, caused by exposure to cleaning products and chemicals
    • Injuries caused by defective electrical equipment, such as vacuum cleaners
    • Injuries related to asbestos exposure
    • Handling injuries, such as back pain

    Injuries for cleaners: Who is liable?

    All employers in the UK are required to enforce health and safety measures to prevent accidents in the workplace. When you go to work, you have a right to feel safe. If you’’ve been injured at work as a result of your employer’s negligence, you may wish to consider claiming compensation.

    Employers may adopt the following measures to try and prevent work injuries for cleaners and work-related illnesses:
