Creating a safe and healthy workplace is a growing priority for all employers, especially as cold and flu seasons seem to hit harder each year and novel viruses emerge. To accomplish this goal, businesses must look beyond standard cleaning. Clean facilities don’t just look better—they provide a healthier, high-performing environment that makes for happier employees and customers, too.
Our new guide, Cleanliness at work—How to protect your people and your profits with LEAN cleaning, offers practical tips and techniques that help reduce risk and improve cleaning best practices.
Improving results requires seeing cleaning as a holistic function of a facility. Some companies treat cleaning either as a simple housekeeping task or a necessary evil. This mentality often leads to neglecting processes, taking shortcuts and looking for the cheapest and easiest solution. The potential negative effects and expensive consequences far outpace any dollars saved upfront, and as a result, the whole facility suffers. Applying the same principles to cleaning as one would to any other critical facility function is the most effective way to experience positive results.
