Whether your organization is a school, healthcare establishment, or a company that owns a building with multiple tenants, making sure your space is clean has never been more important as stay-at-home orders during the COVID-19 pandemic begin to relax.
As our economy reopens, it’s a matter of hygienic safety as well as employee and customer comfort to ensure your spaces are properly disinfected and sanitized.
At this time it’s critical to ask whether your resources are up to the task of combatting COVID-19. Do your people know the procedures required for your various products to provide a clean and safe workspace?
Today we’re discussing these three important pillars of cleanliness.
Knowing what’s in your supply closet and how to use your stock efficiently is critical for the coming months. Whether you are running short on supplies or can’t secure a better sanitizer, you must know what your current supplies do for you. We explore this deeper in our article about The 4 Degrees of Cleaning. Having a cleaner that wipes up dirt and grime may not rid your surfaces of bacteria and viruses, so it’s important to know what you’re working with.
Normal hygiene rituals like hand washing and regular cleaning have become more vital than ever, and they come alongside new and sometimes complex methods of sanitizing your spaces. As we open up stores and people begin mingling again, there are a number of procedures you and your workforce may need to employ:
- Policies for allowing people in on the premises such as temperature checks for healthcare facilities and mask checks for grocery stores
- Proper use of products like how much wet time it takes Lysol vs bleach to kill the novel coronavirus (see above and our previous article)
- Necessary deep cleaning if a COVID-19 case is confirmed at your business
Having established procedures will ensure your workforce knows what to do in any situation rather than burning time on finding things out when immediate responses are required.
This is the most important part in all this crisis. Your people and the people your organization serves are at the center of all of this. We’re the ones contagious; we’re the ones working against it; we’re the ones we’re protecting. And so it falls on you to make sure that everyone on your premises is aware of the new protocols, procedures, and products available to you in this time of need. This extends to your employees as they keep things sanitized, as well as to your customers who will have to learn different hygienic policies just about everywhere they go. Being clear in your communication is key.
