Healthy is also a State of Mind in the Post-COVID-19 WorkplaceJune 12, 2020
As employees return to work following the COVID-19 closures, companies will need to address both the physical and mental stress around potential viral exposure.
As employees move back to the workplace after months of sheltering at home, a well-planned process for cleaning and sanitation is critical for ensuring that the risk of coronavirus exposure has been minimized.
But physical health is not the only challenge facing employers who have to reassure a fearful workforce that the workplaces and offices they have been told to avoid for months are now safe to occupy. Psychological reassurance will also play a role in smoothing the return to the workplace.
While making sure your team is safe is the priority and you are likely monitoring the guidance offered by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, making sure your team feels safe is also critical to a successful rebound.
High Visibility Cleaning and Disinfecting Instills Confidence
Janitorial work used to be done on a second or third shift, out of sight of employees and customers. Today, professional janitorial teams are likely to be working throughout the day in a more visible role. It’s both reassuring and an effective way to maintain a higher level of cleanliness.
Cleaning should be ongoing, routine, effective, thorough, and personal. Among the many considerations are frequent – and visible – cleaning of bathrooms, doorknobs, handles, light switches, phones, desks, and keyboards, and other high-touch surfaces. This protects employees from more than the threat of Covid-19 – it also minimizes the risk of more common viruses and allergens that are not only health risks, but can also cause symptoms that will provoke new fears at a time of heightened focus on health that is likely to persist for some time.
A reliable janitorial partner has always been a source of reassurance to business owners, but in the current environment, that peace of mind can and should be shared with employees.
