Colour coded


Cleaning industry colour codes

Wherever hygiene is a priority GBS Cleaning uses colour coding to make sure we use the right product at the right level for the job and to prevent cross-contamination.

Colour coding makes it easy to meet health and safety requirements; reduces accidents; and the standardised system makes it easier for the cleaners to identify their equipment.

It is a NSW Health Department directive to use this method in health facilities.

The coding is used for the equipment, supplies and products, including cloths, mops, brooms, handles, buckets, brushes, signs, triggers, chemicals, safety wall, charts, and dispensing systems. The codes are:

»  BLUE – General

»  GREEN – Kitchen

»  RED – Bathroom

»  YELLOW – Infectious Areas

»  WHITE – Operating Theatres
