The overall environment at a workplace plays a key role in the company’s growth and success as well. It should be the responsibility of the company’s higher authorities to ensure hygienic workplace conditions for their staff to work which, not only will improve the staff’s working interest but in return will also give a positive result in the quality of work driven by them. This will also make the staff want, to stay more at work.
Some of the effective ways to maintain hygiene at your workplace are:
1) Making the HAND SANITIZERS and Masks compulsory.
The authorities should make sure that each and every staff of there institution carries a pocket HAND SANITIZER with them as this will reduce the risk of any disease to spread within the workplace premises. Also, every employee should use their sanitizer as soon as they enter their workplace before starting any type of activity. Apart from expecting the employees to carry the sanitizers, it is also the responsibility of the institution to install hand sanitizers and hand wash dispensers within the workspace and should be easily accessible to the working team so that they can use it frequently and eventually get into a habit of doing so.
2)Preparing a proper cleaning schedule.
A proper floor cleaning schedule should be prepared by the authorities in order to keep the premises clean and avoid the infectious germs to enter the workplace with anyone. A regular and efficient cleaning routine is extremely necessary to prevent germs and other harmful organisms from thriving within the premise
The cleaning staff should make sure that everything that involves human contact right from the floor to the working desk of every individual is not only cleaned but also disinfected periodically. The schedule doesn’t have to be rigid, it can be flexible and can alter according to the public interaction and other related activities happening around, therefore, ensuring cleanliness at the premises all the time.
3)Installing some good quality AIR FRESHENERS and AIR Purifiers
AIR FRESHNERs should be installed in every section of a workplace in order to keep the air fresh and smell good which helps in keeping the employees refreshing throughout the work span.
The air nowadays is undoubtedly saturated with pollution and all the chemicals that are extremely toxic and hazardous for humans therefore installing air purifiers would ensure that the atmosphere within the workspace is healthy and doesn’t degrade the health of the employees of the company.
4)Keeping the washrooms clean.
Keeping the washrooms clean is one of the major step that a workplace should look after. Providing clean and hygienic washrooms is the responsibility of any and every institution. The toilets and the restrooms should be well equipped with hand soaps/ hand washes, toilet papers, hand drying towels and other majorly required equipments. Also the maintenance and regular cleaning of these spaces is more important than anything else
5)Keeping the eating and smoking area separate.
Segregating the eating or smoking area from the working area is one essential habit that every workplace should practice. This decreases the chances of carrying germs or any other hazardous substance from one area to another. Having a separate smoking area makes sure that while someone is smoking, other people do not unwillingly indulge in passive smoking which will further ensure a healthy environment. Also, this ensures that activities of one individual do not make another individual uncomfortable or hampering their working process.
Regular check, a little bit of caution, and diligent execution of these simple workplace hygiene practices would not only ensure a hygienic working environment but would be adopted as habits by the working members as a habit and would benefit every individual. A hygienic environment is not only important for personal health but putting up a clean picture would help the business to grow as a whole.
