The Importance of Workplace Hygiene and Cleanliness

Hygiene at Work Banner

As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, our daily life and weekly routines will change forever. As a result, each and every one of us will live with a greater awareness for our hygiene and cleanliness. Not only workplace hygiene, but the cleanliness of absolutely everywhere we go. Whether that be on trains or buses, in hotels or gyms or at restaurants and bars.

As we adapt our everyday life to help keep ourselves and those around us safe. It’s also imperative that employers and service providers adapt their ways too. This can be done by investing in appropriate equipment and resources which encourage others to maintain work areas frequently.

This article should give you the inspiration on the types of equipment to help achieve better hygiene at work.

1. Utility Cupboards

Cleaners cupboards, otherwise known as utility cupboards, are beneficial in many ways. Most importantly, they are perfect for storing cleaning equipment and supplies. Featuring an active anti-bacterial powder coating and two point no-snag lock. Which means they add security and convenience.

Manufactured in the UK. They boasts reinforced doors as well as reaction to fire classification EN13501-1.

2. Cleaning Trolleys

It doesn’t take a genius to work out that a cleaners work is hugely variable and massively laborious. Our range of maintenance & housekeeping carts are popular because they equip cleaning teams with all they may need to complete their tasks as thoroughly as possible. Lightweight and robust. They typically feature bins and shelves, as well as mop and bucket storage. This in turn will inevitably reduce the temptation to turn a blind eye to work as they have the correct materials to hand.

3. Hygienic Bins

All rubbish needs to go in a bin. Whether it be recycling or general waste, we all use bins on a daily basis. Bins are often a breeding place for germs and bacteria. That is why they should be emptied as often as possible. In busy workplaces, certainly on a daily basis.

Our range of pedal bins are an effective solution to prevent the spread of germs. This is because there is no need to touch any surfaces, simply use your foot to open the bin and drop your rubbish in.

4. Clean & Dirty Lockers

Many workplaces, particularly industrial and maintenance jobs in factories, workshops and garages require the use of specialist work wear. Due to the nature of these roles, many employees may choose to change at work. This gives them the opportunity to separate their clean clothes from their dirty work clothes. Our range of clean and dirty lockers allow for just that. Available in a choice of colours, they feature strengthened doors with rubber buffers, an anti-bacterial powder coating and are certified to EN13501-1 for their reaction to fire.
