Hygiene has never been more important in schools, colleges, and nurseries than it is now. With increasing demands on internal resources and limited budgets, educational establishments are in growing need of efficient, reliable, and cost-effective hygiene services.
Maintaining high standards of hygiene in any educational setting is far more than a simple box ticking exercise. With large numbers of staff and students gathered in close proximity and moving around rooms and buildings at a high frequency, poor hygiene can quickly lead to some negative outcomes.
Increased staff absence due to sickness is one such consequence. If staff are aware that hygiene levels are sub-optimal there can also be a mental impact that is as significant as the physical impact of viruses spreading, leaving staff demoralised and with a negative perception of the institution.
Studies have revealed that the levels of cleanliness in a school can also impact the performance of students.
Beyond the important considerations around the need to maintain good hygiene for the health and well-being of staff, students, and visitors, maintaining hygiene standards is an incredibly effective way to improve public image and reputation.
Whilst poor hygiene, particularly washroom hygiene, can damage the image of a school or college, high levels of washroom hygiene will stand-out and positively impact how the establishment is perceived by all stakeholders.
This can be of particular importance for those schools and colleges that are competing to attract students and need to create as much competitive advantage as possible. Ensuring the hygiene basics are in place and washrooms are being well maintained is a quick and affordable starting point.
Specialist hygiene services companies such as TWC Group can provide schools, colleges, and nurseries with a range of products and services that they wouldn’t otherwise be able to access in an affordable and convenient way.
