James Carver writes for Cleaning Hygiene Today

OSCFM’s Managing Director, James Carver, writes for Cleaning Hygiene Today, highlighting the need for businesses to shift their priorities and view workspace hygiene as a matter of health and safety in order to protect workers this winter.

The mass return of workers to the office may signal the beginnings of a return to normality. However, this resumption of office life has coincided with spikes in Covid cases and fears of a fast-approaching flu season which threaten to derail this trend.

 

In light of this, OSCFM’s Managing Director, James Carver, writes for Cleaning Hygiene Today, highlighting the need for businesses to shift their priorities and view workspace hygiene as a matter of health and safety in order to protect workers this winter.

 

James outlines the new demands post-pandemic employees now have for their office space with enhanced cleaning as their number one priority. Employers must view a more rigorous and regular cleaning routine as an office’s fourth utility in order to meet the expectations of returning workers.

 

A little can go a long way. Indeed, changes as simple as providing hand sanitiser or sneeze screens can help alleviate the health anxieties workers will be bringing with them on their return.

 

With the threat of rising Covid cases looming as the winter months fast-approach, offices must ensure they are ahead of the curve. Treating cleaning as a health and safety requirement will give workers the protection they need and the confidence to return.
