Benefits of color coded cleaning products

Color coding cleaning is the process of assigning colors to almost all cleaning products and their areas of use within a facility. Apart from industry allocation, and if allowed by the governmental guidelines, you have the option to give the colors other meanings, as you decide.

As no internationally recognized standards exist and colors can change between sectors, the key is that all staff understand the policy used in your facility.

Implementing color coding simplifies training, provides supervisor/client oversight, bridges language barriers and is proven to reduce cross-contamination.
