Back to work guide: Keeping your business clean and safe

concept of cleaning or disinfecting the office - a businessman c

In our ongoing guides to get back to work safely, ensuring staff, customers and visitors are protected from COVID-19, this guide sets out key procedures and products to make sure your business premises remain as clean and sanitized as possible.

 

Step 1: A key part of cleanliness and hygiene is tidiness. 

Cluttered spaces, or areas which are difficult to get to to clean are naturally the places where germs tend to gather. Most businesses have had to move items such as desks and chairs to ensure that social distancing can take place. Remove any unnecessary items which clutter desktops or floor spaces so that it is easier to clean.

 

Step 2: Identify key touch points in your business and clean these regularly. 

Touch points such as door handles, communal kitchen surfaces, taps etc. should be cleaned with disinfectant several times each day, with a clear schedule and allocation of the staff member responsible for the cleaning set out. Ideally there will be a chart where regular cleaning of touch points can be recorded.

You should also check how to clean equipment such as card payment machines safely, and ensure that the equipment is cleaned frequently.

It is also helpful to supply hand sanitizer or hand washing facilities near commonly used touch points. Leaving doors open and adding signage to encourage staff to do the same can also be helpful.

 

Step 3: Encourage hand washing at key times.

For example, after eating, using the bathroom, or touching a door handle or using a card machine. Use signs and verbal and written guidance to inform and remind staff of these measures and ensure you have hand sanitizer or hand washing facilities in plentiful and convenient locations.

 

Step 4: Have an end of shift cleaning procedure in place.

Update your cleaning checklist for the end of each shift, so that desktops, phones, keyboards and other shared equipment or spaces are cleaned with disinfectant. Ensuring cleaning staff use gloves and aprons -- these are the measures which should be employed if someone using a space is reported to have COVD-19 so if cleaning staff are protecting themselves routinely, this will add a layer of safety to your procedures.

Also ensure rubbish from individuals is placed in a plastic bag which is tied at the top at the end of each day.

 

Step 5: Know who works where…

You should have a record of which staff are working and the areas they are working in as a safety measure so that you can employ proper cleaning procedures if a staff member reports COVD-19 symptoms.  But also ensure that you keep a record of which areas cleaning staff come into contact with so you can cross check risk of contamination if a case is reported.
