New health & safety measures

This week, Public Health England (PHE), the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and the Faculty of Occupational Medicine (FOM) collectively released a consensus regarding the best approach to minimising the risk of staff contracting coronavirus in the workplace. One of the key points mentioned in this highlights that it is the duty of employers to manage health risks in the workplace, meaning they are responsible for the implementation of safety procedures upon the national return to work. ICE Cleaning can help you, as owners and managers, make the transition as smooth as possible to avoid your output suffering as a result of the global pandemic.

The drawbacks of working from home

Whilst working from home is possible for some businesses, sources suggest that a percentage of face-to-face interaction is still required on a regular basis to maximise productivity and employee satisfaction. The BBC states that direct communication is necessary in order to facilitate collaboration, build relationships, solve complex challenges and generate ideas. Without a balance, the boundaries of work and personal life are likely to merge, meaning individuals are unable to unwind after a stressful day. According to Nuffield Health, the UK’s largest healthcare charity, up to 80% of Brits feel that their mental health has been negatively affected by working from home. Though productivity may be increased in the short-term, the return to the workplace is essential to protect the mental wellbeing of both employees and managers.

Ensuring a safe return to the workplace

The return to the workplace, however, poses a new level of threat to the workforce. If the necessary health and safety regulations are not dealt with properly, the efficiency of your business can take a major turn. McKinsey & Company describe this as one of the biggest challenges to businesses. Luckily, with the help of the latest industry-leading equipment, we’re able to eradicate all traces of coronavirus from the building. The Global Biorisk Advisory Council states that the virus can remain active on certain surfaces for over a week; just think how many times your staff will come into contact with the same surfaces as one another over that period. It’s not worth the risk.

Here at ICE Cleaning, we offer a professional coronavirus decontamination service, suitable for domestic, industrial and commercial clients across the UK. With access to state-of-the-art technology, we’re able to provide fast, reliable results proven to be 4 times more effective than traditional cleaning methods. We aim to cause as little disruption to your daily routine as possible so use a non-toxic solution to ensure a safe return to the site within just 10 minutes. Upon completion, we offer a 28-day guarantee, providing employees and managers alike with the confidence that their working environment is safe and free of potential hazards.

Further advice

In addition to professional cleaning services, we recommend the implementation of further measures to minimise the risk of COVID-19 in the workplace:

Communicate with employees

To ease the mind of your staff, hold regular meetings to address any concerns about returning to work amid the pandemic. During these meetings, you should also discuss the actions that employees should be taking to prevent the spread of coronavirus, such as hand-washing.

Encourage social distancing

Where possible, encourage your staff to abide by government advice and stay at least 2 metres apart from one another. If this is not possible, social bubbles may be a good idea. Bubbles work by dividing the workforce into smaller groups to limit the amount of human contact and minimise the risk of coronavirus spreading through particles in the air.

Provide hygiene stations

The most effective way to ensure regular hand-washing in the workplace is by placing sanitisation stations around your office and providing all members of staff with their own anti-bacterial hand gel to keep with them at all times.

Use disposable kitchenware

Investing in disposable cups, plates and cutlery may also be worthwhile. Kitchen utensils are particularly susceptible to the virus due to guaranteed exposure to the human mouth. By avoiding the sharing of such items, you can lower the risk of contamination.

Get in touch

Call us today on 0333 577 5805 to find out more about our coronavirus decontamination service, as well as the full range of services we provide. Our fully-qualified technicians are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, meaning we can complete the decontamination process around usual office hours for no additional fee.
