When you come back to work after lockdown, keeping your workplace clean and hygienic is still going to be as important as it was before lockdown. While your cleaners may come in each night or at the end of the week there are things that you and your staff can do to keep your office clean during the day:
- Make your staff responsible for their own work space - have bottles of anti-viral cleaners available around the office, so that they can regularly clean their desks, key boards, mouse and phone hand sets
- Shared desks - if you have an office with shared desk areas - have a bottle of anti-viral cleaner on each desk, and put up a sign that after use the staff member must clean the space before they leave
- allocate a person, or have a roster for a staff member to clean high touch points 2 or 3 times during the day. These include door handles, light switches, photo copy buttons, toilets, push buttons & taps. Don't forget the exterior door handles!
- have a kitchen cleaning roster - after all breaks like morning tea, afternoon tea and lunch ensure the kitchen is properly cleaned - again with an anti-viral cleaner if you can. Ensure the staff member wipes benches, tables, chairs, fridge and microwave handles as well as any other appliances you have - for example coffee machines.
Remember we are all responsible for ensuring that our time in Alert level 4 was not wasted!!!
