The spread of the novel coronavirus, or COVID-19, has brought office hygiene and employee health to the forefront of almost every business. As your organization considers reopening to your employees and customers, there are simple but important steps that can be taken to reduce the spread of viruses and other harmful bacteria in the workplace. We can help you get started with our selection of cleaning and janitorial supplies.
Cleaning Copier and Printing Equipment
Viruses and bacteria are commonly spread through frequently used office equipment, if not properly sanitized. However, these high traffic devices need to be cleaned carefully and with products appropriate for electronic equipment.
Sanitize Office Workstations and Computers
Even when your employees are practicing social distancing and working in private workstations, it is important to keep those areas free from germs and frequently sanitized.
Don’t Forget to Sanitize Office Common Areas
Sanitizing communal office spaces such the kitchens and restrooms is an important way to keep your employees healthy. Door handles, countertops, and toilet seats should be cleaned frequently throughout the day with convenient sanitizing wipes made accessible to employees before and after each use.
When possible, consider utilizing apps to complete your daily office tasks and minimize employee interaction. Update your systems to allow for electronic signatures, virtual document sharing, and voice memos in lieu of unnecessary face to face encounters and unneeded trips to the print station.
Returning to an office environment can be safe and stress-free with the proper cleaning supplies and frequent use. Make quick and repetitive sanitizing a part of your office routine by keeping hand sanitizer, cleaning sprays, and anti-bacterial wipes accessible through the day and at various locations around your office. Perform an office-wide deep cleaning at the end of each workday for added protection.
Pairing these tips and with the right office cleaning and janitorial supplies and social distancing measures and your business can continue to remain productive and safe.
