Where we work is one of the most important parts of our lives, and here at Commercial Hygiene, we are committed to ensuring your workplace is as safe and productive as possible.
As a business owner, there are a number of things that should be considered before your staff return to work.
Firstly, assess areas of the workplace which may be at risk from a hygiene standpoint. This includes communal areas and workstations which may be shared by various users, such as:
- Tabletops and desks
- Door handles and light switches
- Toilets and toilet doors, taps
- Remote controls
- Kettles, coffee machines, toasters, microwave, fridge handles
- Kitchen surfaces and cupboard handles.
In these cases, nominate a member of staff to ensure there is an adequate supply of wipes and disinfectant on hand. As Covid-19 is a respiratory disease, it is also important to check that your air conditioning unit is adequately maintained.
Communication during this ongoing pandemic is also key. It is vital that all staff members are kept updated with the latest HSE advice and guidance. This should include how to report symptoms to a manager and how to monitor your health and wellbeing, improving the hygiene and safety of the business as a whole. By introducing excellent hygiene practice as part of your workplace culture, this will help everyone in the long run. A good way to get introduce this is to provide your staff with a hygiene checklist.
Staying on top of your cleaning supplies To keep your buildings and workplace clean will require having all the right amounts of cleaning products including sprays, hand gels and liquids. It may even be worth being slightly overstocked, just in case these products become hard to get hold of.
