One of the biggest concerns people have is how they are going to boost sales after the pandemic and ensure that they generate enough revenue to stay afloat. But before you start thinking about that, you need to consider the practicality of getting people back into the office. The safety of your staff should be your number one priority, and good hygiene is one of the best ways to reduce the chances of infection. Along with all of the standard advice about social distancing and masks, there are some key office hygiene tips you need to follow during the pandemic. 

Install Hand Sanitizer Dispensers 

Hand washing is one of the best ways to prevent the spread of COVID-19, so it’s important that you encourage everybody to wash their hands often, and lead by example. But you should also put hand sanitizer dispensers around the office, especially in areas where people are likely to pick things up and touch things a lot. Put up some signs reminding everybody to use the dispensers and once it becomes a habit, people will do it without even thinking. Just make sure that you make it clear that sanitizer isn’t a replacement for hand washing. You also need to check the alcohol content and make sure that it’s at least 60%, preferably higher. 

Deep Clean Every Day 

It’s so important that you do a deep clean of your office space every single day. Even though you might not usually do it that often, you need to make the office completely germ-free every day during the pandemic. Make sure that you use good quality cleaning products that will eliminate all germs. If you buy the cheap stuff, you are putting yourself and your employees at risk. If you have a large office and you are concerned about safety, it may be best to call in a professional cleaning service. 

Wipe Down Surfaces Regularly 

Throughout the day, people are touching their desks, computers and other devices on a regular basis. So, even though you have cleaned the office thoroughly, people could still bring germs in that will spread quickly around the office. You can prevent this if you wipe down surfaces on a regular basis throughout the day. Provide a packet of antibacterial wipes for each employee to keep on their desk. That way, they can always wipe down their computer and desk area whenever they get up and move around, and before they go to eat lunch. It takes a little bit of getting used to but as long as you stress the importance of wiping surfaces down regularly, it soon becomes second nature. 

If you want to keep your employees safe as they return to work and help you rebuild your business, you need to follow these basic hygiene tips.
