Safety is No Accident

Safety is no accident in janitorial work, or in any field really.  Working safely takes intention and effort.  Just as a janitor needs to work safely when performing tasks, so does an office assistant or an engineer.  Although the tasks being performed are vastly different, there are safe and unsafe ways of completing them.

We focus strongly on promoting safety in the workplace.  Awareness, training, and prevention are our keys to a safe work environment.  Many accidents can be avoided if you take simple steps in advance and while working.

Identify, Assess, and Control Potential Safety Hazards
Identify, Assess, and Control Potential Hazards

Know the Hazards

In order to work safe, you must first know what the hazards are. 

Take a moment to think over your daily tasks.   Do you lift, bend, or reach frequently?  Do you sit in one place for long periods of time?  Do you work around heavy equipment?  Although these tasks are associated with many different types of jobs, they each pose unique risks. 

Identifying the hazards unique to your tasks is the first step in working safe.

Avoid Hazards

Once you know what the potential safety hazards are, you can take steps to avoid them.  Alternate light and heavy tasks.  Take a break from repetitive motion by changing to a task that requires different movements.  Use proper procedures when handling equipment.  Each of these things is a simple idea to avoid everyday hazards.  In most cases, training, research, or sometimes just pure common sense are good ways to avoid hazards. 

Focus on Good Safety Habits

The best way to avoid safety hazards is to develop good habits.  Be careful not to slip into the mindset that, “Safety is just being nit-picky, I’ll be fine.”  Often in work, the things that we do every day become routine.  We don’t think through every movement or action because we’ve done it so many times before.  Because of this, it is crucial that the routine is founded on safety.  Don’t give into the temptation to take shortcuts or ignore what you know is safe just because you can.  Making safety your default, or your routine, is the best way to work.

In the world of COVID, safety takes on a whole new meaning for anyone in business or in life. Many of our hazards do start to look the same regardless of the industry we are in. Are we using the necessary personal protective equipment, disinfecting work surfaces, and taking all of the other necessary steps to protect not only ourselves as individuals but also those around us?

Training is Key in Janitorial Services

Tri-County Janitorial serves Fresno, Visalia, Kingsburg, Selma, Reedley and the near by areas.  We are happy to provide commercial cleaning for many types of businesses in these areas and all through the valley.  It is in large part due to our employees’ training and dedication that we are allowed to succeed.

We believe that efficient and effective training is an essential tool to success in the cleaning industry.  Each of our janitors receives on-the-job, side by side instruction with a skilled member of our staff. We strive to continue that training through all their years with us.

training is key as employee and CEO collaborate on job plans

Many people may say, ‘anyone can clean,’ but the janitorial field is not a job for the untrained or faint of heart.  Janitors put in long, strenuous, and sometimes very solitary hours to give others a clean office space to work in.  Teaching an eye for detail and efficiency are each equally important in this task.  As in any industry, ineffective training leaves an employee and therefore the entire company at a disadvantage.  By empowering our cleaners with proper training, our entire company is brought a step closer to true success.

Because of quality training we can serve a variety of commercial and office cleaning needs.

We Are Ready to Clean

When the virus Covid-19 hit our economy and especially threatened our loved ones, things became more uncertain than ever.  Something happened that had never happened before and for many of us, it meant being laid off jobs.

For Tri-County Janitorial, we continue to serve a little over 60% of the commercial cleaning we do.  In the janitorial business, we serve companies and businesses that serve you with your most essential needs like emergency services and cattle feed for the meat you eat.  We do office cleaning for those who pick up your trash, the engineers that build your buildings and roads, your banks, and pharmacies.

Please call us to clean your office, industrial facility, or church.  We are on the front lines now serving so many and when your offices, churches, and houses of worship start up again, we will be happy to serve you again.  We are qualified to serve any size business and we are ready to clean for you!

Tri-County Janitorial is a commercial cleaning service. We love what we do and and are proud of the service we offer; but, business is so much more than one sale or service. Being a part of our local communities is inspiration at the heart of our company. We love any chance to see our community grow and thrive!
