Simple ways to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in your workplace
If you’re looking to get the team back in the office this year, you are not alone. Many companies across Oxfordshire and England are beginning to set target dates for when employees will be welcomed back into offices. The UK government have recently published guidelines for making workplaces safe for employers during coronavirus pandemic, professional cleaning services have a vital role to play in getting the UK back to work.
Nowadays, when the main priority is to preserve the health and normal life of people, it is our duty to remind you about the necessity of the implementation of disinfection measures. This blog is meant to cover the basics of creating a healthy and sanitary work environment. We believe workplace wellbeing extends not just to cleaning and disinfecting the office, but to good communication, and healthy office culture for COVID and beyond.
The World Health Organization has put together some low-cost measures that will help prevent the spread of infections in your workplace, such as colds, flu and stomach bugs, and protect your customers, contractors, and employees:
-Make sure your workplaces are clean and hygienic: surfaces and objects need to be wiped with disinfectant regularly.
-Promote regular and thorough handwashing by employees, contractors, and customers.
-Promote good respiratory in the workplace. Ensure that face masks or paper tissues are available at your workplaces, for those who develop a runny nose or cough at work, along with closed bins for hygienically disposing of them.
-Advise employees and contractors to consult national travel advice before going on business trips.
-Brief your employees, contractors, and customers that if COVID-19 starts spreading in your community anyone with even a mild cough or low-grade fever needs to stay at home.
Most office cleaning programs prior the pandemic were aesthetic, and additional steps are now necessary to ensure more thorough cleaning and disinfection. A crucial first step towards the reopening is to conduct a full assessment of the cleaning and hygiene requirements necessary to deliver a safe environment.
The period before reopening is the ideal time to prepare for the increase in sanitary provisions, such as hand sanitizer, to ensure your business is ready to go back to normal.
