3 Ways to Make Your Office Cleaner and Safer

3 Ways to Make Your Office Cleaner and Safer

In our last blog post, we focused on ways offices could better configure their workspaces to keep staff healthy and reduce the risk transmission of coronavirus. This month, we are narrowing down that focus even more to talk about what individual employees can do to create safer spaces.

Wipe Smarter

When most people clean, they typically grab a disinfectant wipe or paper towel and move across a surface in a back-and-forth or circular manner. While the surface may look clean, think about all the germs redeposited across the surface as you wipe in that fashion.

Instead, form a new habit of wiping down frequently-touched surfaces in one direction and resist the temptation to go back over the same area in the opposite direction.

Stick to a Color-Coded System

Cross-contamination is a real threat while cleaning, but it’s one that can easily be avoided by using a color-coded system for your cleaning supplies. Use different-colored cloths and supplies in the office, break room and restroom to prevent cross-contamination.

Post Handwashing Reminders

By now, everyone knows that frequent hand washing is one of the best ways to prevent the spread of coronavirus, but reminders can help give another extra nudge. Post signs throughout your office to remind your team to wash for at least 20 seconds with soap and water.

To increase hand hygiene even more, place hand sanitizer around your space. Choose a formula with an alcohol content of at least 60%.

Following these three steps can help keep your space safer, cleaner and healthier!
