Clean Start Policy

South Australian Government Clean Start Policy

The Clean Start Policy applies to a number of commercial government buildings in the Adelaide CBD. The policy requires cleaning contractors to adopt the Clean Start Principles, including compliance with prevailing industry standards no less favourable than the terms and conditions in the Clean Start Collective Agreement (although nominally expiring on 30 June 2013, the Collective Agreement continues to operate until it is replaced or terminated by application to the Fair Work Commission).
