Keeping Your Company Clean During COVID

In a world still battling COVID-19, keeping your workplace clean is paramount. Develop a strategic cleaning plan tailored to your workspace, focusing on high-traffic and high-touch areas. Don't just plan – implement your strategy and maintain it diligently. Regular cleaning, disinfecting, and providing protective gear are key. For businesses open to the public, frequent cleaning of high-touch spots is crucial. Keep hand sanitizer and masks readily available for customers and employees. Ensure a safe environment, ease worries, and practice safety in your workplace during COVID-19. For comprehensive healthcare solutions, contact Work Health Solutions today.

COVID-19 is a big concern, and the risk of exposure in the workplace is high. This has led many individuals to become overstressed or fearful about going to work. As a business owner, there are simple steps you can take to keep your team safe and healthy during this time of concern. Here are some tips on keeping your company clean during COVID!

Develop A Strategy

As with anything in business, strategy is needed. Keeping your workplace clean and your employees healthy is no exception! Take time to develop a strategy to help conquer germs in the workplace. Consider the following steps.

Plan

The first step in developing a strategy is to make a plan. Take time to identify which areas need to be cleaned. Not every space needs as much attention. Give extra caution to high-traffic areas and high-touch surfaces. Rarely used areas, like storage closets, may not need to be cleaned as often. 

Planning also involves determining what resources will be needed. Once you’ve taken note of all the sinks, doorknobs, elevator buttons, etc., that need to be cleaned, take stock of which products you need to get the job done. Cleaning products and PPE will be necessary to ensure the safety of your team.

Implement

Once you’ve developed a strategy to keep your company clean during COVID, you’ll need to implement it. Remember, no matter how good your plan is, it won’t happen on its own. Prioritize times for cleaning and make sure that the necessary work is done.

Clean surfaces with soap and water, then disinfect them. Also, ensure that anyone involved in cleaning always wears the appropriate protective clothing/masks while dealing with cleaners. Some cleaners, such as bleach, contain potentially harmful chemicals which can be dangerous if inhaled. 

Maintain

Cleaning isn’t a “one-and-done” activity. It requires ongoing maintenance. Items get dirty over time, and germs can quickly cover surfaces. Stay caught up with your cleaning routine and continue to make it a priority, adjusting as needed. Pay particular attention when employees are returning from a holiday

To stay safe from COVID and to ease the minds of your employees, you should disinfect frequently touched surfaces once or twice a day. Continue to follow safe practices such as social distancing and personal hygiene as well.

Keep The Workspace Clean

Office spaces are not the only businesses to worry about. Retail stores and other businesses exposed to the general public are at a higher risk of spreading COVID. Here are a few practical tips for keeping these spaces clean.

  • Clean and disinfect high-touch areas several times daily, including doorknobs, push bars, handles, light switches, carts/baskets, and touchscreens.
  • Deep clean areas weekly utilizing proper PPE.
  • Offer hand sanitizer and masks at the entrance of the building to encourage customers to stay safe. 
  • Provide personal hand sanitizer for cashiers or other employees who can’t leave their workstations throughout the day.

While this list is by no means exhaustive, it is a great starting point for keeping you and your company clean during COVID. Continue to follow safe practices and encourage others to do the same.
