Hygiene Matters More
Than You Realize- Here’s Why
Hygiene in the form of proper hand washing, disinfecting, and cleaning have taken a newfound importance as a result of the recent COVID-19 pandemic. As one of the most prominent advocates for proper preventative measures, the Australian Department of Health strongly advises people to “clean and disinfect surfaces you use often such as bench-tops, desks and doorknobs” and “wash hands often with soap and water.”
At Novus Corporation, our professional team of residential, commercial, and construction cleaning experts have determined that although people understand what they need to do to maintain proper hygiene, they oftentimes don’t understand why. We are firm believers that understanding the fundamental importance behind why we take preventative hygiene and sanitation measures will drive people to maintain healthy habits for longer. To increase awareness, we have compiled the following blog post. Our goal is to help foster the safest environment possible for people as they return to work and everyday life.
According to the Food Safety Information Council in Australia, “an amazing 9 per cent of women and 27 per cent of men didn’t wash their hands at all when observed in a shopping centre washroom.” Although we anticipate these numbers to improve as a result of the awareness that COVID-19 has created, people nationwide should understand how hygiene can impact productivity.
When employees ‘power-through’ their illness and decide not to take a sick day, they are putting themselves and others at risk. By infecting their coworkers, employees in offices, restaurants, and construction sites alike put the entire business at risk. Although we highly encourage staff members to take sick days when necessary, lost productivity can be prevented by simple hygiene practices.
