"Occupational safety and prevention affects everyone.
As a result, it's all the more important for companies and
employees to tackle the issue and regularly keep themselves
up-to-date as regards changes relating to occupational
health and safety and the Workplace Ordinance. We need
platforms like the CMS Berlin to ensure occupational safety
and health protection in the workplace and to avoid accidents
at work and occupational diseases. The CMS Berlin helps us
make the amended regulations of the building industry, planners
and contractors more transparent in 2017, too."

"CMS Berlin has successfully developed into a competence
platform for cleaning and hygiene. In addition to a comprehensive
range of products, systems and processes for the entire
commercial cleaning technology, a further quality feature of the
exhibition is its highly practical relevance. The CMS Practice Forum
offers interesting information and a first-class discussion of
current industry topics, which are important for trade visitors."

ly important. Modern detergents
and appliances are an essential
prerequisite to ensure thorough
and gentle cleaning. While the
tasks in the retail sector tend to
be relatively straightforward, there
are some special features in shopping
centres that must be borne
in mind, such as fat deposits
in the catering sector, tyre wear
on forklift trucks and lift trucks
or, in the winter, wet patches and
deicing salt on the parking decks.
Added to this are cases of soiling
caused by chewing gum, cigarette
butts and packaging waste. The
equipment, which must be provided
by the person responsible for
cleaning, is consequently extremely

Three experts, three days, at three p.m.
At the information stand of the professional domestic economy association (Berufsverband
Hauswirtschaft) in Hall 6.2a, experts from rhw management will be on hand to discuss
the issues of disinfection, ergonomics and focal points regarding cleaning.
Members of the professional association can enjoy guided tours of the fair every day. There
are short talks on topics such as the disinfection plan, ergonomic cleaning and skin protection.
Innovations in cleaning machines and equipment will also be presented.
ders extends from classic cleaning
tasks to holistic facility management
via additional infrastructure
services (e.g. pick-up and delivery
services, catering services, gatekeepers
and caretaker services,
etc.). Slowly but surely, the building
cleaner sector has turned into
a modern service sector. The building
service providers' demand for
cleaning chemicals, machines and
cleaning equipment is as extensive
as the range of services offered.
Thanks to the constant extension
of the range of services, the service
provider is increasingly becoming
a customer consultant. In order to
provide the client with competent
and reliable information, the service
provider has to be up-to-date
and very well informed at all times.
Administrations, schools, airports,
sports facilities, railway stations
and means of transport – users
expect them to be clean and tidy
at all times. The requirements that
arise due to usage, frequency and
surface are all very different and
depend on the building in question.
A look at administrations and
– the stark opposite – public transport
In administrations, the challenges
often lie in the structural field:
carpet floors come up against safety
tiles and require a completely
different type of cleaning. There
are also panes of sensitive safety
glass, along with stainless steel
fittings or handrails. All surfaces
have to be professionally cleaned
and properly maintained in order
to avoid damage and any resulting
claims for compensation. To ensure
cleanliness and hygiene in trains,
extensive processes, professional
cleaning, know-how and sophisticated
logistics are all necessary.
The fact that cleanliness and hygiene,
particularly in the sanitary
area, but also in seating areas and
on luggage racks, contribute to
passenger satisfaction is backed
up by a study conducted by the
ecological Verkehrsclub Deutschland
(VCD, "Traffic Club Germany").
According to the VCD, there's a
direct link between overall satisfaction
with the journey and
cleanliness. Unclean, dirty toilets
