BICSc releases its long-awaited 'Standards & Best Practice'

Since 1961, BICSc has been a leader in education, standards and best practice for the cleaning sector. At a time when cleaning and hygiene remains a top agenda item, BICSc has released a new publication, aptly named ‘Standards & Best Practice’.

With contributions from industry experts, it combines intelligence, experience and knowledge which, when followed, will become an integral part of any organisation’s overall performance. Contents include:

  • BICSc recommended colour-coding.
  • The Cleaning Professional’s Skills Suite explained.
  • ‘BICSc Outcome Criteria’ offers an effective and efficient way of measuring cleanliness and what is and isn’t acceptable.
  • ‘BICSc Compound Productivity Rates’ provide a standardised figure for calculating time needed to complete a cleaning operation.

Standards across all professional disciplines originate from the knowledge and experience of industry experts. Often they are used as a proficiency tested by examination through education or training. BICSc Standards & Best Practice is a means to simplify an agreed way of delivering cleaning methodology.

Many dimensions exist within the professional cleaning and hygiene world. This publication offers a wealth of knowledge and explains how the BICSc ethos and principles of cleaning can be adapted to suit a professional cleaning company.

Corporate and accredited training members are offered online access to the publication free of charge - just one of the benefits of being a BICSc member. Non-members can purchase BICSc Standards & Best Practice in hard copy from the BICSc online shop.
