Addendum 6.

Facilities Cleaning Check List

Cleaning Requirements

A full venue clean should be carried out on a weekly basis, with spot cleaning using sanitiser to be undertaken in line with small group training session timings e.g. after each session or end of nights play, the following will be sanitised:

  • Handrails
  • Sign in tables
  • Toilet facilities – including toilet lids, seats, cistern push buttons, toilet roll holders, doors, benches, hand dryers, paper towel.
  • Bins not to have lids and to be emptied
  • Where possible prop toilet doors open to limit touching handles. Where this is not possible for privacy reasons, place rubbish bins outside of toilet facilities to encourage patrons to open doors with hand towels then dispose of on exit
  • Paper towel, soap, and hand sanitiser levels to be monitored regularly

HQ recommends that a COVID Safe Coordinator is allocated to each session to take responsibility of completing the cleaning requirements before the next group arrives.
