75% of people feel UNSAFE returning to work – The importance of workplace hygiene

With COVID-19 on everyone’s mind at the moment, some very telling research has shown how staff feel about returning to work.

Here’s what the survey carried out by Harris Interactive found:

  • 75% of people feel unsafe returning to the workplace
  • 80% of consumers are now more aware of hygiene practices when outside the home
  • 70% want the provision of hand washing and toilet facilities
  • 89% said the washroom is one of the most important areas to improve hygiene levels
  • 62% say seeing cleaning in action is important
  • 75% thought the condition of the washroom is a reflection of the hygiene standards for the rest of the establishment

Even though the pandemic started nearly a year ago, it is clear that not enough has been done in workplaces to ensure the confidence and safety of staff and customers.

Although there are teams currently working from home, there are still many businesses open, and hopefully it won’t be long before everyone can open their doors once again. It’s so important to put the COVID-secure measures in place now and let your staff and customers know what you’ve done to ensure their safety.
