Cleanzine - the original Cleaning & Hygiene industry e-news

Read by industry professionals in 163 countries worldwide!
 

As I mentioned last week, John and I attended the Loo of the Year Awards on Friday. And as always happens when the subject is anything to do with the humble loo (or not so humble in many cases, as we learned during the awards themselves!) there was a real buzz about the place and my comment to John during the accompanying mini exhibition of Awards sponsors, was: “Why can’t all exhibitions be like this?” I’ll bet in terms of good leads, the exhibitors are congratulating themselves on their decision to become involved and sponsor such a worthwhile cause!

Loo-of-the-year.jpg 
As usual, we heard about numerous local council loo closures and real concerns from people about where we’ll all ‘go’ if the closures aren’t stopped soon, but we also heard many success stories. I wonder how, if some councils are able to provide so many award-winning facilities, others can’t seem to shut theirs down quickly enough! With the move to Internet shopping gaining real momentum, councils must do more to attract shoppers to their town centres and sightseers to their places of interest and beauty spots, or lose the accompanying income from parking, entry fees and business/shop rates and rents. Don’t they realise that without decent, accessible loos, people will go elsewhere, leaving their local streets and town centres to become ghost towns?

One presentation that got our table talking was by two mothers speaking on behalf of Changing Places, who have, between them, three disabled children who need special changing facilities if they are to enjoy any type of life outside. They talked about the hardships they face and their relief when they’re able to avail themselves of a properly equipped washroom. Those on our table agreed that a shopping centre with such facilities would draw crowds from neighbouring boroughs. The facilities might be costly to install but just imagine the income from the extra footfall!

Of course the Awards aren’t all about local authority loos but about away from home facilities everywhere. For a full list of winners and photo’s of some of the winning facilities, visit: www.loo.co.uk/externals/downloads/LOY_2014

New international standard offers guidance on outsourcing

BSI, the business standards company, has published 'BS ISO 37500 Guidance on outsourcing', the first overarching ISO standard to set out the generic principles and procedures of outsourcing. For the first time also, it helps businesses to access a common vocabulary on which to base their communications.

The value of outsourcing has already been noted by organisations that want to increase their efficiency and reduce their costs by sending work to external third-parties. The practice, which encourages mutually beneficial collaborative working relationships, has grown over the past 20 years and is estimated to generate revenues in the region of trillions of US dollars a year.
