Vehicle and office cleaning checklist available now for members

To help businesses prepare for Covid-19 inspections, BPCA has released a template cleaning schedule that is available to download now from the Member Documents Area (login required).


Since around June last year, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has been making spot checks on reopened businesses, to ensure compliance with Covid-19 measures. 

BPCA issued some guidance in September 2020 around steps your business could take to be more Covid-secure. 

Feedback from several members, who have since had inspections, noted that a cleaning schedule for vans and offices was something inspectors have been particularly keen to see.

Government advice is that as a minimum, frequently touched surfaces should be wiped down twice a day, and one of these should be at the beginning or the end of the working day.

Cleaning should be more frequent depending on the number of people using the space, whether they are entering and exiting the setting and access to handwashing and hand-sanitising facilities. 

We've created a template to help you record this on a single sheet, which can either be printed out or filled in digitally.

Visit the Member Documents Area (login required) to access the Office and Van Cleaning Schedule template.
