The Main Goal of Commercial Cleaning is
A Workplace that is clean, safe, and healthy.
Workplace hygiene is at the core of every productive and successful business.
Many employees spend around 30 per cent of their total time in the workplace. This means that the workplace must be an area of outstandingly hygenic standards.
Hygiene isn't an added bonus, it’s an integral part of occupational health and safety — sanitized, neat and clean at all times. Some areas such as kitchens, bathrooms or high-touch surfaces will need more care. To identify these areas, an adequate hygiene plan is essential. A good start should include a risk assessment to find which areas demand attention.
All managers and employees should be made aware of these plans. Even if a cleaning service is employed, workers need to be aware of best practices and basic hygiene requirements.
Despite the lessening impact of the pandemic, bad workplace hygiene still poses a health risk. All of the common office place diseases like influenze virus, common cold, synus infections are causing hundreds employees to take sick days.
Here are four basic things to consider when talking about office cleaning and good hygiene.
1. Personal hygiene. Worker personal hygiene is important. Include proper background and context in the hygiene plan, and frequently remind employees through posters and internal communication (e.g. emails). If you are having a problem with a worker, don’t hesitate to talk to them in private.
2. Work area cleanliness. The work area in general needs to be kept clean and tidy, focusing on high-touch surfaces and areas with a lot of foot traffic. Work surfaces and their contents — keyboards or phones are typically high-touch items and need to be cleaned very often. Encourage workers maintain a clutter-free area, encouraging more frequent wiping and sanitizing of the surfaces.
3. Clean toilet facilities. Bathrooms must be cleaned frequently and thoroughly. A clean bathroom also should be well equipped with essentials such as soap, toilet paper and hand towels. Workers also have a personal responsibility to practice proper personal hygiene after using the facilities.
4. Clean kitchen area. As a communal environment, food prep and consumption areas need to be as clean as possible. It is of utmost importance that surfaces and utensils be kept clean. Poor hygiene creates huge health risks. A designated cleaning staff is usually required, and it is important to ensure that workers are taught to clean after themselves.
