The cleaning industry’s commitment to manufacturing products, equipment and systems that require less water, took on greater importance for me last week when I was asked whether I’d willingly drink water that had been recycled from toilet waste. Apparently, plans which could see treated sewage water introduced into London's drinking water supply to eke it out, have been backed by 69% of those that responded to a survey, out of the 5,000 people asked.

I have two things to say to that: “Who the heck did they ask!” and: “How many people responded?”

I gather Thames Water launched the consultation to determine the best way of serving the rapidly growing population in London and the Thames Valley, which is predicted to reach 10 million fairly soon.

One option mooted was the use of recycled waste water, whereby waste from toilets would be recycled back into the River Thames, drawn out and retreated to make it safe to be streamed into the mains supply.

Although the company says it has no definite plans to implement the scheme and that if it does go ahead, it won’t be for at least another 10 years, a test plant has already been commissioned in Enfield, north London.

OK, so I often complain about the cloudy, chalky water we have in Epsom and the awful limescale we have to deal with, but I know where I’d rather be living right now, (although having been lucky enough to drink fresh, untreated water flowing along mountain streams while travelling in other parts of Europe, I do still feel rather hard done by)!

Other, more palatable options that appealed to respondents were the installation of water meters in homes and businesses and a redistribution system, whereby water is transported from areas where it’s plentiful, into other parts of the country that are experiencing shortages – both of which make sense.

Thames Water warns that unless action is taken, there could be a water deficit of around 125 million litres per day by next year, so something clearly needs to be done quickly. Dealing with leaks more rapidly would, of course, be a good place to start…

New technology helps control and protect against Ebola

* Goldshield.jpgGoldshield's GS24 alcohol-free antiseptic hand sanitiser and protector contains a QAC-based biocide using patented technology, that attaches to a polymer producing something called covalent bonding.

This is a form of nano-technology, which allows an 'invisible glove' to be formed on the hand, providing enhanced protection against microorganisms and enveloped viruses such as Ebola.

Ebola highlights importance of infection prevention

* Xenex-Oubreak-Response.jpgThe arrival of the Ebola virus on new continents has served as a wake-up call for infection prevention in hospitals worldwide. Patients suspected of or diagnosed with an Ebola virus infection pose a risk for healthcare workers, patients and visitors.

This includes the risk of transmission of Ebola within the healthcare environment; and the perception of risk, which could lead hospital staff to refuse to work with patients and discourage patients from coming to the hospital for treatment.

Protecting yourself from serious illness: avoid paper money!

* Kaivac-Ebola-promo.jpgAs part of its series of advisories on how cleaning professionals can protect themselves from serious infection - especially now that Ebola has made it to a number of different countries - Kaivac, developer of the No-Touch and OmniFlex cleaning systems, suggests one way is to avoid handling paper money!

"While this sounds a bit extreme, the truth is infections can and do live on paper bills for many days after they have been touched by a person with the flu or some other infection," says Matt Morrison, Communications Manager for Kaivac. "What this is really telling us is that when it comes to stopping the spread of infection we have to be on guard and take precautions at all times."

We have mail: The Domestic Cleaning Alliance responds to last week's Leader...

Jan, I like your article. However, if it were simply a case of removing the stigma of cleaning, we'd be home and I dry. I wish it were so simple.

The very nature of many commercial cleaning jobs is such that the hours are, in many cases, short, and the cleaning is performed either very early in the morning or late in the day. This makes the job a lot less appalling and in many cases uneconomical for the person doing it. Don't get me wrong, there have been many times in my life where I was reliant on two or more part-time jobs to make up my hours, but then I was lucky enough to be able to run a car, which made getting to work for 6am to do two hours cleaning a lot easier.

Same direction but new track for Panztel

* panztel-ezitracker.jpgThe renowned provider of technology for managing remote workforces has changed its name from Panztel to Ezitracker.

Explaining the reason for the change, John Moore, Managing Director, said: "Since the company was founded in 1998 we have traded as Panztel but in the last few years we have become far better known by our brand name - Ezitracker. This change means that the trading and brand names will now be one and the same; a decision we know is welcomed by our customers."

Older women working part-time more likely to become 'stuck' in low pay

Women in low-paid employment are on average 47 percentage points more likely than similar men to be still in low pay after ten years*, according to new research published last week by the Chartered Institute of Personnel & Development, the professional body for Human Resources and people development, in association with John Lewis Partnership. The Pay progression: understanding the barriers for the lowest paid report, written by Tooley Street Research, outlines the key contributing factors associated with an individual becoming 'stuck' in low pay.

The report, which categorises low pay as those paid below 20% above the minimum wage, shows evidence of a huge increase in the number of people on low pay between the 1990s and 2010s.
