Platinum, Spearhead | Delivering excellence to healthcare
David Lindberg, Director: Spearhead platinum plan was born to fill a gap in the marketplace. We saw the need for an experienced range of high performing chemicals specifically sourced and formulated for care home requirements. It is a group of products but it is also a complete concept. It’s going to save the staff time, it’s going to save you money, it’s going to make you compliant with regulations, it’s going to bring you everything you need all in one binder. And what’s more you’re home will look good, smell clean, look fresh.
Janet Solomon, Abbotsford Care Homes: The products are outstanding. They smell nice which is a major, major thing. They work, the time systems that they take to use, everything is there, everybody knows how to use them.
David: The benefits of the binder system to the care home are that it delivers consistency, transparency, it also brings a bit of accountability throughout the home because everyone’s working to the same system.
Janet: The important elements of the binder are that it’s colour coded in relationship with the national colour coding system which codes every area of the home from the washroom to the laundry to the kitchen with a different colour and all the platinum products are covered by that colour coding so we are within the national regulations.
David: Behind each colour coded tab is a full product specification sheet, information on every product detailing what it does. Behind that is a cleaning schedule for each area where we advice which areas we think should be cleaned weekly, and daily and which products to use and how to apply them. Following that, there’s all the cosh safety data sheets, which are essential, and then we can do bespoke cosh risk assessment forms applicable solely to your home. From a health and safety angle, the binder proves you’re doing exactly what’s expected of you. Any inspector will look upon the binder favourably, it proves what you’re doing and when you’re doing it. But also having all that cosh information to hadn’t in one binder, in one place means you can access it whenever you need it immediately. Platinum products have a proven level of success in the washroom, areas that are typically difficult to clean are made very easy to clean using the platinum products, taps, sinks, sanitary wear, toilets are all left shining and gleaming. The platinum kitchen products are a range of powerful, food safe chemicals that clean effectively in the kitchen. Areas such as crockery, the oven, surfaces are left shining, clean and sanitised.
