Powered Equipment Use and Maintenance Plan (Appendix C)

The building manager should develop, adopt, and maintain a plan for the use of powered janitorial equipment that maximises the effective reduction of building contaminants with minimum environmental impact. Building managers should determine that the janitorial equipment currently used is functioning properly (as validated by the equipment manufacturer or by a reputable third-party service organisation) or that it is tagged out of service.

A component of this plan should include a quarterly maintenance program that inspects and maintains the performance of janitorial equipment, as defined by the equipment vendor and records results in a maintenance log.

The following requirements apply to the use of vacuum cleaners:

  • Vacuums should be equipped with the proper filter or bag; the filters should be changed or cleaned consistent with the manufacturer’s recommendations. Bagless vacuums may be acceptable (even if they do not have Carpet and Rug
  • Institute approval) if they are able to remove and capture particles efficiently (ask for independent test data), and if care is exercised in the emptying of dust bins.
  • Vacuum bags or canisters should be inspected at least every 2 hours and changed or replaced when half-full or less or when indicated by a bag sensor, if the vacuum is so equipped.
  • Precautions should be taken to limit worker exposure to dust and particulate matter when cleaning and replacing bags and filters, or emptying dust bins.
