Financial Year End tax savings encourage investment in Mechanised Cleaning before June 30 2017.

The end of Financial Year at June 30 2017 is looming as a FINAL opportunity to buy equipment below $20000 and write it off instantly instead of depreciating it. It’s a great contribution from the government towards improving the quality of cleaning, reduce costs and improve safety by small businesses with turnover below $10m pa. After that date assets over $1000 will be depreciated over the years of their useful life.

Cleaning Managers are under relentless pressure to cut costs. The biggest cost is labor, and mechanised cleaning of floor and wall surfaces is generally faster and more effective than manual cleaning. Vacuums, Sweepers and Scrubbers replace brooms, scourers and mops doing it faster, consistently, and more thoroughly. Time saved can lead to reduced operator hours, or diverted hours to other cleaning projects that often get deferred.

Mechanised cleaning also brings controlled usage of chemicals that reduce cost, and reduced chemical flows into the environment. Vacuums with filters gather and retain dust instead of stirring it up into airborne dirt and sometimes harmful bacteria that can be breathed in by staff and customers.Mechanised cleaning reduces manual effort, bringing reduced WHS claims for injury at work. Floors that are cleaner, and drier, also reduces safety hazards that are legally and financially costly.

Hand hygiene and Infection Prevention and Control more generally are key weapons in the fight against Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR).




IPC leaders need to champion hand hygiene campaigning and progress their journey of integrating WHO’s “core components” for IPC in every health facility.


Everyone can play their part and here’s how:


  • health workers - clean your hands at the right times.


  • chief executive officers and managers of health facilities - support hand hygiene campaigning and IPC programmes to protect patients from antibiotic resistant infections.


  • policy makers - stop AMR spread by demonstrating national support for and commitment to infection prevention.
