Tri-County Janitorial owner, Mark Jones, supports saving 102 year old trees on “Shady Lane” in Kingsburg.
Safety is often achieved in the small things. Planning, preparation, and teamwork go a long way in creating a safe work environment. We recently had Jorgensen Co. out to do annual fire extinguisher maintenance. This quick step ensures that our office and office staff have tools needed in case of an emergency.
Similarly, in our cleaning services, it is our goal to fully equip all our janitors with the tools, equipment and knowledge they need to do the job safely. The right PPE and a plan for how to get the job done can each be small parts, yet are essential in promoting safety.
We do our job safely so that we can help create a safe space for our customers. Quality cleaning is one step forward in safety.
How can you take steps towards safety today?

Safety is always the most important thing we do at Tri-County Janitorial. Here is a wonderful article I wrote in the spring of last year. Safety is the best way to enjoy the good life.
Satisfying our customers with the best cleaning that can be done in the janitorial industry is the main goal of Tri-County Janitorial.
That can only be achieved by making safety the most important thing that we do. One misstep, one lapse in concentration, can have serious repercussions for everyone involved. That is why we make safety our top priority.
Our fundamental philosophy for doing this is complete awareness of ones surroundings and oneself at all times while on the job.
Janitors and cleaning staff have one of the highest risks for repetitive motion injuries. Repetitive motion injuries or injuries that happen from exacerbating an off the job injury occur mainly when there is a break down in awareness or a complete denial of the importance of any pain or discomfort. We train our janitors and cleaning staff to avoid these types of injuries by being aware of everything that they do. An awareness of and reaction to every feeling, by example if you feel thirsty drinking water, is of paramount importance. Any lapse in this can be met with severe consequences.
Company wide safety is achieved by significant discussion of this in an applicant’s pre-employment interview, observation of an employee’s actions during the training period, and frequent interaction with the employee about safety and awareness through their entire time of employment.
Our safety program includes safety articles tailored to our business environment which go out to employees twice a month, deliberate discussions of safety in almost every interaction with individual employees or groups, safety checks of our operations in each facility on a regular basis, and several safety meetings a year across cultures of the company – gathering managers, foremen, and janitors together to learn from each other and discuss safe practices.
Everything starts with the employee’s initial orientation when they make a commitment to be safe and act safe with specific focus on personal responsibilities and what it means in specific aspects of the job.
The attitude of safety which we require from every janitor, foreman, and manager in our company extends well beyond the individual. The personal foundation of safety is strengthened by interactions with other safety minded co-workers and supervisors. This foundation of safety allows us to then create a safe work environment for not only our own employees, but for our customers as well. The attitude of awareness towards safety emphasizes awareness of self, surroundings, and others; then, removing or communicating the existence of potential hazards to others.
It is the safe way in which our janitor’s work which allows us to clean our customer’s offices and buildings consistently, thoroughly, and effectively; while giving our customers peace of mind.
