In all areas with people occupying, hygiene is very important. Poor office hygiene can lead to both physical and mental health problems. In a working society, we spend roughly 8 hours in an office daily hence, it is critical these long lengths are spent in a clean, hygienic, and comfortable environment. So why is it important to keep this space clean?
It is well known that working in a tidy and clean space increases morale and happiness within employees. This will in turn increase efficiency and productivity.
If you as the boss you are not happy with your working conditions, it’s most likely that your staff is not satisfied as well. Hygiene and respect go a long way to create a good and productive working relationship
Health & Safety
Clean floors prevent injuries such as slips, trips, and falls that can be fatal at any point. Areas like the Kitchens, bathrooms, and other shared spaces can easily become hazardous if not properly maintained.
In case a serious injury occurs in the office, you may be faced with a lawsuit that could be draining the company. You could end up paying compensation if it is proven you did not take proper precautions to prevent this.
Some diseases like catching a cold and flu can be a massive inconvenience to all those involved. In case a staff member falls ill, they will need time off to recover. Maintaining proper hygiene practices can prevent these germs from spreading in the office like wildfire throughout the workforce. Disinfecting surfaces is important since these bacteria can live on hard surfaces for long periods.
There are many ways to maintain hygiene in the office. Frequent cleaning is also more cost-effective than periodic deep-cleansing, while deep-clean may be good, it can also be disruptive to your staff and workload as you may have to displace team members while this is going on. Keeping your office clean gives it a positive working area for all employees.
