Window Cleaning Competition
Window cleaning always has a high profile at the Cleaning Show and this year will be no different. Those in the trade (and perhaps those thinking of taking it up) will have the opportunity to view and try out a huge range of innovative window cleaning products including water-fed pole systems, access equipment, safety equipment, work-wear, squeegees and accessories plus window cleaning machines and discuss with representatives of the Federation of Window Cleaners, some of the training programmes on offer - and in particular 'Cleaning Windows Safely' and 'Risk Assessment'.
The FWC is renowned for the calibre of its training courses for window cleaners which cover essential information on everything from current health & safety issues to employment law. Both courses are accredited by the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH).
"Our Cleaning Windows Safely and Risk Assessment courses are aimed at everyone within the window and specialist cleaning industry which is why exhibiting at The Cleaning Show is key for us," said Beryl Murray, General Secretary, FWC.
There will also be the popular window cleaning competition. Over the three days of the show, visitors will be able to try their hand at cleaning windows under the supervision of the world's fastest window cleaner, Terry Burrows. Heats will take place each afternoon to find the 20 fastest window cleaners. The top three will receive financial rewards and the winner each day will compete against Terry Burrows in a bid to take the world title.
