Employers and employees alike have welcomed the new disinfection routines in the workplace for their safety and the safety of their loved ones. And many facilities and workplaces worldwide have increased their disinfection and cleaning frequencies because of the Covid-19 virus.
Although there has been some increase in the latest Covid-19 cases, the vaccinations have stabilized the infection rates for now.
But we are not out of the woods yet, and cleaning and disinfection practices are still more important than ever. That’s why we have put together a list of tips you can use to disinfect your office in a post-pandemic environment:
Tip 1: Encourage Employees To Sanitize Their Desk
You can incorporate disinfection into your employees’ daily routine through a safety procedure guide in the workplace. You can encourage them to sanitize their station before starting work for their safety and other high-frequency areas where they might commune and gather in the office.
Place a sanitizing solution, fiber cloth, or alcohol wipes in numerous places throughout the office, so your employees have access to the best cleaning and disinfecting solutions.
Tip 2: Create A Sanitizing Station
If you’re running a warehouse or distribution facility, you must be dealing with a large number of employees and major foot traffic. One of the best ways to tackle disinfecting your workers when they enter the facility premises is to set up screening processes and sanitizing stations.
You can work with building service contractors and facility managers to implement this process in lobbies and sanitization stations in high traffic areas.
Tip 3: Create A Contamination Response Plan
You need to be able to work out the best plan in case of contamination and virus transfer because you’ll not be in a position to shut down the facility. You can develop a plan with your facility and floor managers about the employees who need to quarantine and take the test to determine their infection status.
You can also use advanced cleaning techniques like electrostatic spraying to protect against future outbreaks. Make sure to develop a streamlined response if a positive case of Covid-19 is reported.
Tip 4: Place Sanitizers On Your Employees’ Desks And Entrances
If you can’t accommodate all your employees without social distancing, come up with a hybrid plan in which some of them can come to the office on certain days of the week while the rest work from home in the interim.
You also need to place sanitizers at desks and entrances to make sure that employees disinfect their hands every time they touch doorknobs, desks, etc., to stop cross-contamination.
