As restrictions have been removed in the UK, it’s important that we still put our visitors and employees’ health and safety at the top of our priority list.
Even without a global pandemic, keeping your workplace clean and sanitary is an important part of running a business.
Public health should be something everyone is taking into account, and it only takes a few small steps to help reduce the risk of spreading bacteria.
Here are some small, basic ways you can reduce risk in your workplace, and keep your staff and clients safe.
Easily accessible hand sanitiser
This is one of the easiest ways to prevent further spread of diseases, as we can pick up bacteria from touching exposed surfaces, or when we cough or sneeze into our hands.
While you don’t want your signage to be obnoxious, having small friendly reminders in your workplace to keep up with personal hygiene is a great way to encourage your employees and visitors to do their part.
It can be simple as a sign in your bathrooms encouraging you to wash your hands with soap and water for an appropriate amount of time.

Regular cleaning in the workplace
Regular cleaning in the workplace is a necessity, regardless of whether there is a global pandemic. Ensuring that the people who enter your building can enjoy a clean and safe space is just good for business.
You want to ensure that you are routinely cleaning surfaces in communal areas, whether it’s staff meeting rooms, dining areas or any other high traffic areas.
You also want to clean frequently touched surfaces whether it’s eftpos machines, light switches, door handles etc. You can clean them daily or when visibly dirty.
Wipes are an easy way to quickly conduct this routine cleaning.
You’ll want to disinfect surfaces after cleaning, as disinfectant doesn’t work effectively on soiled or dirty surfaces.
Looking toward the future
This COVID-19 pandemic has completely changed the way that we operate in the workplace.
As we look forward to a post pandemic world, we are excited to see businesses begin to recover and flourish again.
However, it’s important that we continue to keep our work environments safe by maintaining a high level of cleanliness and hygiene.
