Sanitizing office equipment & boosting productivity
Sanitizing office equipment is crucial, whether you’re working from home in your own dedicated work space, or going into your office. It’s essential to be aware of how to help maintain proper hygiene in your work environment.
It makes sense to maintain a clean and de-cluttered workspace, not only for yourself but also to protect the other people you work with. Maintaining a clean and hygienic workspace will not only prevent the spread of Covid-19, but also help to boost your comfort and productivity levels.
Things to remember as a boss about sanitizing office equipment
If you are a company owner, you will need to make sure that the equipment that your employees are using during their workday is completely sterile and cleaned at all times. It’s your responsibility to ask your employees to also keep their desks clutter-free and sanitized, and it’s a good idea for the safety of your business to provide the products to do this. And don’t forget the seating areas where your employees have their lunch and breaks – the seating should be distanced and all surfaces sanitised!
That said, it can be easy to forget that simple gestures as someone doing the morning coffee run and handing you a cappuccino, or handing you a pen and asking you to sign a document, can present an infection risk. Similarly, in a reception area, when deliveries are received, it would be easy to keep a pen at the counter for signatures but hard to remember to sanitise it after every person touches it.
Sanitizing office equipment for 21 days at a time
The reality is that, while we all know that we should be sanitising our hands, work surfaces and objects that we regularly touch, in the workplace, people can easily forget – especially when they are under pressure with their work duties, or distracted by other aspects of the business. For this reason, when you equip your employees with sanitiser materials, you should consider a trio of products from the Fine Guard range that are Medical Wellness Association-recommended, which will provide huge benefits for every employee, as well as the safety and productivity of the business.
- The Fine Guard Pure Surfaces surface disinfectant, kills 99.9% of germs on contact and provides protection against germs for 21 days. This means an employee can spray their desk at the start of the working week and just apply it once a week to maintain a high standard of sanitisation.
- The Fine Guard Ultra Wipes disinfecting wipes also kill 99.9% of all germs on contact and provide 21-day protection against germs; and are available in packs of 16 wipes. These are ideal for sanitising office machines, computer keyboards, stationery items, door handles and other commonly touched items.
- Lastly, the Fine Guard Pure Hands hand sanitiser is clinically proven to provide germ protection for 24 hours at a time.
All three products are water-based, which means a welcome relief for hands from the drying effect of alcohol-based sanitisers. They are also non-toxic, which means they are safe for anyone who does grab lunch at their desk. Most importantly, they kill 99.9% of germs on contact – and continue to provide this protection all day.
So, rather than having to remember to sanitise every single time they use a pen, press a copier button, open a door, use a computer or press a light switch, it makes sense to help employees to concentrate on work and help them with the tools that can ensure their safety, while they focus on productivity.
