Last week, I attended a very busy commonly used Government building. Lots of staff in nicely pressed uniforms! Members of the public moving through public and controlled space.

In the midst of everything, I watched a cleaner attend to an infectious body fluids spill. No PPE. Infection control out the window. I saw cross-infection of various areas. NSW Health standards were clearly not a concern nor Work Cover standards.

These are very common practices for cleaners employed by large National Cleaning Companies. Why? Because the Bio-Hazard Cleaning Sector is not regulated in Australia and our Government is only too willing to gamble with the health of cleaners, staff and the unwitting general public.
