Health and Safety Information

Please refer to the relevant COSHH safety data sheets.

Warning
Wear suitable PPE as per your COSHH assessments.

1) Sanitise and chlorinate the hot tub on a weekly basis. Add 1 chlorine tablet to the hot tub every week to keep the water clean and sparkling.

2) Clean the hot tub filter once every month. If dirt and debris gets trapped in the filter, it has to be cleaned out to ensure the hot tub is functioning properly.
 Remove the filter according to the instructions provided by the hot tub manufacturer. Lay the filter on the ground and spray it with a hose to loosen any dirt or particles that may have gathered in the hot tub.
 Soak the hot tub filter in a bucket filled with water, and add some spa filter cleaner.
 Take the filter out of the solution. Spray the filter again to rinse it, and ensure all the dirt and cleaning solution has been rinsed away.

3) Clean the hot tub shell every 3 months. To clean a hot tub shell, drain the water out of the tub. Trying to clean the shell with the water still in the hot tub will cause the chemical properties of the water to change.
 Use Deepclean and wipe down the hot tub shell with a damp sponge. Rinse out the tub and once clean, refill the hot tub with fresh water.

4) Clean the hot tub cover. The outside part of the hot tub cover gets the most exposure to sunlight and weather elements, so it is prone to collecting dirt. Wipe down the cover at least once per month. Vinyl protectant is available for the outside of hot tub covers.
 Clean the underside of the hot tub cover by taking the cover off the tub, and spraying it with a hose. Cleaners are not needed for this side of the cover.

Well, I don’t know about you but I feel that May came and went with the blink of an eye!  With two bank holidays and a three day business trip to Amsterdam, there never seemed to be enough hours in a day!

Keeping You In The Know

In my opinion, there has never been a more exciting time to be a member of the professional cleaning industry.  Tim Chadwick our General Manager and I visited the ISSA Interclean Exhibition in Amsterdam from 11th to 13th May.  We walked an average of 12 miles each day, covering the 11 halls (50,000sqm) and chatted to many of the 800+ world leading exhibitor’s from over 130 countries showcasing their latest innovations. 

We particularly enjoyed listening to cutting edge and inspiring talks in the Innovation Hub, about the future of the industry alongside watching robots clean floors!

Many new innovations, sourced from the show will be hitting our portfolio over the coming weeks and we can’t wait to get your feedback on these products.  Watch this space!

Compliance – A Cavalier Attitude to Safety?

The month of May saw a run on sales of allergy safety labels.  This seemed to follow the very sad news of the death of Paul Wilson, 38, who died after a North Yorkshire restaurant owner cut corners by using cheaper ingredients containing peanuts without changing the food allergen advice. As we know, food allergen labelling is crucial to people with food allergies that have to be extremely careful about what they eat. 

Food Safety labelling laws changed in Dec 2014 and although at times legislation may seem like a pounding headache difficult to get rid of, if the law had been followed, the above death could have been prevented. Find out more about food labelling here.

Our Community

The Spectrum team enjoyed watching two great events in Scarborough this month.  Firstly, the finale of the Tour De Yorkshire, with many of us on the finishing line cheering on the winners. Secondly, the Grand Prix of the Seas which provided a weekend of mighty, rolling waves that made surfers smile and powerboat and Jet Ski racers frown. Unfortunately, Saturday’s race programme was almost entirely abandoned due to the dangerous sea conditions, however the wild North Sea calmed a little for Sunday and we watched the ten race boats and twenty Jet Ski riders battle it out to find a winner!
