As coronavirus can be passed between people and surfaces, it is vital that your workplace is kept clean and hygienic during these times. Here, we share some tips on how to keep your workplace hygienic during coronavirus, so you can be confident that you’re doing the best for your employees and guests.
Encourage handwashing in the workplace
Washing our hands for at least 20 seconds, or using hand sanitiser when handwashing facilities aren’t available, is one of the key factors in keeping coronavirus at bay. Through putting up signs and posters encouraging handwashing around your workplace, you can have peace of mind that you’re doing all you can to remind your employees and visitors that carrying out this simple hygiene task is very important. You should ensure that the handwashing facilities in your workplace are in good working order and that there’s always plenty of soap and paper towels (in the absence of hand dryers) available. You should also set up hand sanitising stations where appropriate e.g. in reception areas.
Identify frequently touched surfaces
In the workplace, there will be some surfaces that get touched more than others and these will require very frequent cleaning. Door handles, light switches, lift buttons and kitchen equipment are all things that different people will touch regularly, so it’s important that special attention is given to cleaning these multiple times throughout the day. You can keep on top of this through identifying these touchpoints and ensuring that these are frequently cleaned with high quality products. Encouraging handwashing in these areas will also help to keep employees and visitors safe.
Hire a professional cleaner
The best way to get peace of mind that your workplace is clean during the coronavirus pandemic is to hire a professional cleaner to help you. At Sparkles, we ensure that we have an array of approved cleaning products suited to different surfaces, so you can be confident that the whole office has been cleaned to a very high standard. In addition to using products that eliminate viruses, when you hire a professional cleaner you know that your workplace will be spotless and inviting too, which is certainly a benefit for visitors, employees, and yourself.
