Government Guidelines for your Washrooms – What you need to know

Whether you’re classed as an essential business or you’re getting set to open up again soon, with all the new rules and guidelines due to Covid-19, we understand that it can seem like a minefield.

Being a washroom specialist, we want to help make things as clear as possible for you. So we’ve pulled together the government regulations you need to know to ensure your washrooms are as safe as possible during this pandemic.

If you’re running an office, contact centre and any other indoor environment, here are the new guidelines you need to adhere to:

  1. Using signs and posters to build awareness of good handwashing technique, the need to increase handwashing frequency, avoid touching your face and to cough or sneeze into a tissue which is binned safely, or into your arm if a tissue is not available
  2. Providing regular reminders and signage to maintain personal hygiene standards
  3. Providing hand sanitiser in multiple locations in addition to washrooms
  4. Setting clear use and cleaning guidance for toilets to ensure they are kept clean and social distancing is achieved as much as possible
  5. Enhancing cleaning for busy areas
  6. Providing more waste facilities and more frequent rubbish collection
  7. Providing hand drying facilities – either paper towels or electrical dryers
