The cleanliness of a workplace environment not only influences employee productivity but also is essential to their safety and crucial to their health. With today’s current circumstances with COVID-19 and flu season about to start, having a hygienic workplace is more important than ever.
Commonly used spaces, such as break rooms, can be hot spots for germs to accumulate. While it may be tempting to put off dusting or other types of cleaning around the office or worksite, doing so may put employees at risk of suffering an injury or illness. Here are some tips on how to keep everyone safe by having a clean workplace.
1. Have in place regular, scheduled cleaning of your workplace.
2. Frequently touched areas and surfaces should be cleaned several times a day; this includes Eftpos equipment, elevator buttons, handrails, tables, countertops, doorknobs, and sinks.
3. Clean and disinfect frequently used objects such as mobile phones, keys, wallets and work passes.
4. Wash your hands often with soap and water and use alcohol-based hand sanitisers.
