When it comes to washrooms, your business has a duty to your workforce to provide a healthy, pleasant environment. So, why is it so important to invest in the hygiene of your washrooms?
First of all, you might glance around your washroom and decide it looks clean, but commonly touched surfaces can harbour harmful germs and bacteria. Think about the places in the washroom that get touched the most; door handles, taps, and flushes might be shining, but they may still present a hazard. During the Covid-19 pandemic, it has become more important than ever to ensure you provide adequate sanitation in order to protect your employees from health risks. Washrooms should receive thorough, regular cleaning, and the provision of soaps and sanitisers can help to maintain this standard of hygiene.
Not only does washroom hygiene protect your workforce, but it can also boost staff morale. Holding every area of the premises to a high standard demonstrates your care and concern for the wellbeing of your employees, which is often then reflected in their attitudes at work. In fact, washroom hygiene can lead to higher productivity, a more positive atmosphere, and peace of mind for your staff.
Beyond your workforce, you should also consider that visitors to your premises are likely to visit your washroom, and their first impressions of your business may be influenced by the standard of hygiene they experience there. For this reason, it is also worthwhile to consider odour control, and air fresheners. You might tell a potential client that your business prioritises excellent attention to detail, but if they have to wash their hands or use the facilities in a dirty washroom, they may not be inclined to believe you.
