With the clocks going forward at the weekend and restrictions slowly starting to be lifted, now is the time for businesses to spring into action and ensure their premises are Covid secure and as clean and hygienic as they can be to install confidence in their customers and employees.
A recent survey established that 53% of Brits believe UK businesses could be doing more to improve the hygiene of their premises and 87% said hygiene is more important to them now than it was before Covid.
The survey also revealed that 76% of people do not believe travelling by public transport is a hygienic way to travel, 58% do not believe schools are Covid-safe environments and 55% do not believe hospitality venues will have done enough when they reopen.
Serious action will need to be taken by businesses if they are to succeed in gaining back customer and employee confidence otherwise the financial ramifications could be even more detrimental than the past 12 months have already been.
So what can businesses do to improve?
Visible and more enhanced cleaning and disinfecting should become the norm carried out by professional cleaning operatives, cleaning protocols should be made readily available to view online and schedules displayed throughout the premises. Clutter should be removed, high touch areas need extra attention and hard to reach areas must not be forgotten.
