Autumn Hygiene

As the seasons change, so do cleaning and hygiene requirements. With autumn settling in and winter not far behind, now is a good time to make sure you’re prepared for the months ahead.

We are already seeing the return of seasonal viruses rising, such as coughs and colds, flu, and norovirus. The COVID-19 restrictions that were in place last year meant there was less opportunity for these germs to spread between people, but this may mean higher rates of infection ahead of us. Therefore the mantra of hygiene must be sustained.

  • Continue to offer staff, customers, and visitors opportunities to clean their hands – in washrooms, at entrances/exits, and in high traffic areas, such as by reception desks or point of sale zones.
  • Factor enough time into cleaning schedules for staff to undertake the necessary frequent sanitising and cleaning of surfaces. Additional cleaning of flooring may also be required to prevent slips and falls during times of wet weather.
  • Ensure that staff have the skills to achieve the best possible clean, by investing in high quality and relevant training.

Our award-winning e-learning platform, the Jangro Learning Solution (LMS), offers a flexible and contact-less approach to training. Highly accessible, it is optimised for all devices, covering a wide range of topics, and was recently accredited by the CPD Certification Service. Users can track their progress and are awarded badges as they progress through the training courses.

It also offers a versatile system to ‘train on the go’ with its Task Cards – brief, highly visual documents containing step-by-step instructions for product usage and safety information. Pertinent subjects for autumn include ‘how to mop a floor’ and ‘how to clean a potential virus outbreak’.
