Are you wondering if investing in touch-free hygiene solutions is still worth it? Absolutely. There’s never been a better time to upgrade your workplace with touch-free solutions. While the Australian government has put in policies to help slow the spread of COVID-19, it is clear that COVID-19 will be with us for the foreseeable future. Climate change also means that we can probably expect future pandemic events. That means that anything we can do to boost hygiene will be a great way to protect your clients and your employees.
One of the best ways to reduce disease transmission is to reduce touch. Even with airborne diseases like COVID-19, touch can increase transmission. Companies need to take a comprehensive approach to hygiene. Improving your business’s health means improving the cleanliness of surfaces and air, but it also means reducing touch.
Touch-free hygiene solutions reduce the transmission of diseases that can be spread by touch. People touch infected surfaces and then touch their hands, eyes, and mouth. Even if people avoid touching their own faces, they can help spread disease by touching contaminated surfaces. Touch-free hygiene solutions reduce the risk of touch transmission.
Another benefit of touch-free solutions is that people are more likely to use them. Because people are worried about picking up diseases from touching common surfaces, they try to avoid them. Unfortunately, that can compound hygiene issues. If people avoid using soap or washing their hands in the washroom, it contributes to the spread of disease. These diseases go beyond COVID-19 and can impact everything from the pandemic to things like food safety. Touch-free solutions encourage people to wash their hands and use hand sanitisers.
Flick offers workplace hygiene solutions to help you transition to a touch-free environment. We have touch-free soap dispensers, waste bins, paper towel dispensers, and hand sanitiser dispensers. Touch-free, easily accessible hygiene solutions encourage your customers and clients to exercise better hygiene habits.
However, washroom safety is part of creating a touch-free work environment. You can also take steps to reduce touching surfaces in the workplace, such as:
- Collection client information before they come into the office, reducing shared pens, pencils and paper
- Use touch-free access when possible. Automatic doors, push open doors, and even foot handles for door access help reduce touch.
- Sensor lights that switch on when movement is detected and turn off when there is no movement for a designated period.
- Automated lights that are on between set hours of the day.
Unfortunately, you cannot avoid all touches. That is why Flick offers sanitisation services in addition to our other hygiene solutions. While nothing can eliminate the risk of transmitting diseases, taking the proper steps can help protect your clients and customers from illness.
