Swiftclean Building Services, pioneers of the Ventilation Hygiene Industry, formed in 1982, have been active and significant technical contributors to various ventilation hygiene sector standards and guidance documents published by various bodies including BSRIA (Building Services Research & Information Association), CIBSE (Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers) and The BESA (Building Engineering Services Association). These various publications have helped to shape good practice in our field. Quality training in line with these standards has always been within the DNA of Swiftclean, who have always championed the skills development for people in the wider ventilation hygiene trade. We are delighted to have been approved by BESA Training to deliver the Grease Hygiene Operative course. This course will help operatives conducting kitchen grease extract fire safety cleaning in our sector to better understand their responsibilities and the importance of fully complying with section 7 of TR/19 and further to obtain competency certification from The BESA.
