Is your working environment clean and healthy?
In today’s modern workplace, it is crucial to have a clean and healthy working environment. It directly impacts the productivity, health, and well-being of all your employees. Following recent studies, it has been proven that working towards this goal, the following benefits can be achieved:
Firstly, a clean and well-organised workplace can help employees focus and concentrate better, leading to increased productivity and efficiency.
A dirty and unsanitary workplace can lead to the spread of germs and illnesses, which can affect the health of employees. By maintaining a clean and healthy working environment, you can reduce the risk of illnesses and improve the overall health of employees.
A clean and healthy working environment can boost employee morale and satisfaction. When employees feel comfortable and safe in their workplace, they are more likely to be motivated and engaged.
A clean and well-maintained workplace can project a positive image to clients, customers, and visitors. It can help establish trust and credibility with stakeholders, which can benefit the business in the long run.
Compliance with regulations:
Many industries are subject to regulations and standards for workplace safety and hygiene. While maintaining a clean and healthy working environment, businesses will ensure compliance with these regulations.
We at Phosters feel that having a clean and healthy working environment is essential for the well-being of our employees, the productivity of the business, and compliance with the latest regulations. Many of our clients share this view and we have listed below how our national soft services team support our clients work towards achieving the absolute best workplaces:
Regular cleaning is essential to maintaining a clean working environment. Through our dedicated soft services team, we establish a cleaning schedule, inline with BICS standards, that includes daily, weekly, and monthly tasks such as vacuuming, mopping, dusting, and wiping down surfaces.
Proper ventilation is crucial to maintaining a healthy working environment. Ensure that your workplace has good airflow and ventilation systems that are regularly maintained and cleaned.
Sanitation and hygiene practices:
Encourage employees to practice good sanitation and hygiene habits such as washing hands regularly, covering mouths when coughing or sneezing, and using hand sanitiser.
Consequently, clutter can create an unsanitary and unorganized working environment. Encourage employees to keep their workspaces clean and organised and provide storage solutions to help them achieve this.
Use eco-friendly cleaning products:
Consider using eco-friendly cleaning products that are safe for both employees and the environment.
Regular maintenance of equipment, furniture, and fixtures can help prevent the accumulation of dust and dirt, which can lead to health issues.
Finally, establish policies that promote cleanliness and hygiene in the workplace. This can include policies on food and drink consumption, smoking, and personal hygiene.
By implementing these practices, you can also maintain a clean and healthy working environment, promoting productivity, and most importantly, the well-being of your employees.
