Jangro helps businesses get back to work safely
12 June 2020
Jangro, the UK and Ireland’s largest network of independent janitorial suppliers, has launched two new guides to help businesses prepare for the return to work, as the country eases out of lockdown.
The first is about how to control the risk of COVID-19 via deep cleaning, while the second focuses on the importance of hand hygiene, with tips and advice to achieve compliance.
‘Deep Cleaning – Controlling the Risk’ is a handy guide, which aims to help cleaning operatives work more safely under the constant threat of coronavirus, while also helping businesses ensure that their premises are hygienically clean and ‘COVID-19 secure’. With infection control measures in place, organisations can begin resuming normal operations, with the confidence that their premises are safe and healthy places to work.
The guide covers key cleaning and hygiene topics, including: personal protective equipment (PPE), hand hygiene, cleaning in non-healthcare settings, infection control colour coding, types of disinfectant and sanitiser, and the equipment required for wiping surfaces, floor care, and emergency spillages. It also includes advice for washing laundry, waste disposal, and signposts other support materials available, such as infection control guides and wallcharts and area cleaning charts.
The second pamphlet delves deeper into the ‘Importance of Hand Hygiene’, and includes instructions for good handwashing practice, advice about the type of soap or cleansers to choose, and steps to help maintain good hygiene. It also gives guidance for handwashing in facilities where children are present, such as schools and nurseries. Additionally, there is information about hand sanitising, including tips about the most effective locations to position hand sanitising stations within a building.
Joanne Gilliard, CEO at Jangro, said: "Cleaning and hygiene have always played an important role in society, but as the world battles against COVID-19, they have taken on added significance.
"Our two new guides aim to help businesses, in clear and easy to understand language, implement effective infection prevention measures. With these in place, they can rest assured that their workspaces are as clean, hygienic, and healthy as possible, thus preventing the spread of germs, and protecting staff, their families, and the wider community."
