There is a general saying amongst resolute practitioners of commerce and industry. The saying goes that risk management and housekeeping go hand in hand. The two sets of principles and practices are practically joined at the hip. Or so it should go when applied by commercial, retail and industrial business owners and practitioners. Of course, daily cleaning work by now forms an integral part of the housekeeping side of the partnership.
It is more specifically applied by responsible commercial, retail and industrial business owners. But it could just as easily apply to the residential property owner simply because he takes pride in his property investment and wishes to see it realize investment value and growth. And of course, he does wish to ensure that all those who live within the four walls are safe, healthy and comfortable. On the whole, any professional risk manager who also takes pride in his work might wish to see to it that his clients’ residential, commercial and industrial cleaning services are attended to as professionally as possible.
Or at all costs. That is to say that the risk manager may have taken into account the setting that he was initially requested to inspect. But there should be space for leniency and flexibility just as long as the risk manager is allowed to be part of the client’s disciplined approach taken to the upkeep of his or her property investment. But it should go without saying that even at the minimum, commercial, residential and industrial property owners should ensure that their businesses whether it be risk management or housekeeping, or ideally both are attended to professionally.
The larger the property and business size, the more closely same will be monitored by third parties with public representation and interest.
