How to Prevent COVID in Your Business Using Proper Sanitation Measures

August 2, 2022 – The COVID 19 pandemic was an eye-opening event for many people, especially business owners. Although it’s been over 2 years since the outbreak of COVID 19, protecting your business from another potential outbreak should still be a priority. Thankfully, with the right cleaning supplies in addition to proper hygiene protocols, you can protect your business, employees, and your customers.

The Right Janitorial Supplies

The COVID 19 pandemic reinforced the fact that business owners must have proper sanitation supplies on hand and use them often to keep the workplace safe. Additionally, a business must not only know which sanitation supplies to utilize, but they must have a healthy inventory of those supplies on hand.  Did you know that every desk is home to approximately 20 million germs? It’s true. Every handrail, elevator button, doorknob, and other shared areas in the workplace has the potential to spread germs.

Keeping janitorial supplies on hand that employees can access will help encourage a cleaner and safer work environment. To that end, we encourage you to check out our selection of wipes that work seamlessly and effectively to combat germs. If you aren’t sure which wipes are a proper fit for your business, request complimentary samples and test out several wipes before making a selection.

As a business manager, it’s important to encourage your team to regularly clean their work space and common areas to improve overall safety throughout the building. In fact, cleaning common areas is as simple as providing hand sanitizer at the coffee station where employees can sanitize their hands prior to touching the coffee maker. You may also encourage employees to use a paper towel to open the bathroom door after washing their hands to prevent the spread of any lingering germs.

Additionally, you can simultaneously boost employee morale and improve your business’s cleanliness by holding weekly meetings and asking for employee’s feedback in terms of how safe they feel with current protocols and see if they have suggestions for improving the cleanliness of the workplace. Both you and your employees will feel happier when you collaborate and realize you all have a voice that matters.

Follow CDC Guidelines
As we know, following CDC guidelines, especially in the workplace, is crucial for proper business practice and safety. One of the many suggestions that comes from the CDC is to wash one’s hands for at least 20 seconds after visiting the restroom. However, as a business manager, you may want to require employees to wash their hands after eating, being outside for any reason, and after handling a phone in the common area. You can even take this a step further and assign weekly tasks to each employee to sanitize door handles, clean the toilet handle and bathroom sink, sanitize common areas such as the kitchen, and keep their own workplace sanitary. It’s not only easier to maintain a clean workspace when we all work together, but it encourages everyone to work together and maintain a clean space. When it comes to choosing wipes for cleaning measures, National Wiper Alliance offers a wide variety of wipes that are tailored to specific industries. For example, we produce wipes specifically for the Medical + Healthcare field, Food Service + Hospitality, Janitorial and Sanitation and many more. Check out our list of products by industry to find products that fit your business’s needs.

Encourage Sick Leave
Last but not least, it’s important to encourage any employee who is feeling sick to go home for the day and rest. Additionally, business managers should encourage employees to stay at home if they are experiencing any symptoms of COVID or other symptoms of an illness. By being a supportive manager, you will make your other employees feel safe and lessen the exposure from germs by encouraging those who are sick to stay home. Of course, if you have an employee leave early due to feeling sick, use your janitorial supplies to make sure the workspace is cleaned and disinfected.

Our top-quality sanitation wipes protect your employee’s health and improve your workplace’s reputation as it elicits the fact that you sincerely care about your employees and your business.
