Hand Hygiene is so Important

Reasons Why Hand Hygiene is so Important

We all want to work in a clean and hygienic environment when in work. It’s only natural to want to feel at home and comfortable during your working hours. When it comes to a clean workplace there are many procedures and products available to assist.

Hand Soaps and Sanitisers

We have many options when it comes to hand soaps including Soap bars, Pump soaps and wall mounted Soap Dispenser Systems. We offer traditional Buttermilk soaps that are quite old fashioned these days but still quite popular. When it comes to workplace soap systems we have an even split between pump soaps and wall mounted systems. It’s all down to customer preferrence, budgets and the cost in use. If you are on a tight budget and like to keep an eye on your pennies you need to take a look at our Foam soap dispenser systems. We have a few options including North Shore Soap Systems with 3 colour options. Each refill is a cartridge that works out at approximately 0.04p per dose. An amazing price when you work out a Pump soap costs approximately 2.5p per dose. Of course, it all dependes on the pump soap and dispenser but it’s definately something to keep an eye on.

Disposable Gloves for your Workplace

Disposable gloves are becoming more popular in all industries and used mostly in our Healthcare sector. Whether it be for food preperation, garage workshops, changing a babies nappy or operating in surgery, disposable gloves are necessary. Latex free gloves are idea if you have latex allergies. With this in mind, we offer Vinyl Disposable Gloves in either Blue for food areas or clear for general workplace use. For more medical use for Doctors or Dentists we offer Nitrile Dispsable gloves in a range of sizes and are Medical grade.

Evans Vanodine Handcare Solutions

Finally, our Evans Vanodine range has been tried and tested. Evans offer amazing support when it comes to hand hygiene and has a great video on the how to’s when it comes to washing your hands. Unperfumed Bactericidal Soap in your Kitchen is so important when it comes to preparing food. Watch the video and see for yourself.

Cleaning, Why We Should Clean Daily

Cleaning, Why We Should Clean Daily

For most, its pretty obvious why we should all be working in a clean environment, whether it be in the workplace or at home. Firstly, it is a legal requirement that every place of work must uphold to a certain degree of hygiene and companies that to not consistantly uphold cleaning levels could find themselves in a pickle. First impressions in the workplace say a lot. For new clients or even new staff, a dusty, dirty looking office is not appealing, therefore that perfect canditate may refuse to work there. Furthermore, new clients who you may wish to do business with may think differently about future relations with you.

Hiring a Contract Cleaner

Many offices don’t have the time to maintain a large office are so they may call on Contract Cleaning Companies like Dublcheck. Dublcheck have a nationwide database of Franchisee’s that have all been vetted and trained. Contract cleaners have offerered their services for many years and here are many to choose from. We would always recommend a trusted, proven company with many cleaners. The only negative we have found with contract cleaners is staffing issues. Larger companies have plently of staff on hand if one doesn’t show for work. With smaller companies, this can be a problem.

Employing Your Own Cleaners

This is a preferred option for many companies as they have a little more control over employees. Stock holding of cleaning products is also a bonus as companies can scout out all the best deals for Cleaning Supplies. Consumables including Paper Products, Toilet Rolls and Paper Hand Towels can be quite expensive over a year so companies do need to shop for the best online deals. Its hard to find out prices of consumables when you pay a set monthly fee to contract cleaner.

We offer a complete range of Evans Vanodine Cleaning products for every cleaning task. With our Evans range we also offer Environmentally Preferred products which are WEIR accredited

Colour Coding, Our Guide

guide to colour coding

Colour coding cleaning in our industry is the process of allocating specific colours. 4 Colours for Certain cleaning tasks and cleaning equipment in different areas of a workplace or area. This helps to reduce the spread of germs across areas and assists in hygiene throughout a business or home.

Using a single mop to clean every floor in a toilet, for example, can spread bacteria into other areas. At least if you keep a single mop head in the washroom, and contamination occurs, unwanted germs won’t spread.

Kitchen and food preparation areas should also have a designated colour. Applying a colour coded system to segregate sensitive areas from one-another is perfect. The most efficient and effective way of reducing the risk of cross contamination is to use colour coding.

Developed by the BICSc is a universal colour code chart which is recommended for use within the cleaning industry.

Colour Coding, The 4 Colours

Red – Sanitary Appliances & Washroom Floors

Red has been assigned to areas such as urinals, toilets and washroom floors. This is because these areas are universally regarded to have a high-risk of bacterial contamination. By using only red-coded cleaning products such as Red All purpose cloths, Red Mop Heads, buckets and gloves to clean them, the risk of spreading bacteria outside of these areas is minimised.

Yellow – Clinical & Healthcare

Yellow is assigned to clinical and sensive environments however yellow is often used outside of the care industry as a colour assigned to the cleaning of all other washroom surfaces, including sinks, mirrors, cubicles, tiled walls, glass and metal. Having two different colour codes for wash rooms ensures that the same cleaning products are not used on toilet seats and urinals as on sinks and taps, and helps to further contain the spread of infection. We have Yellow All purpose cloths for this specific task.

Green – General Food and Bar Use

Green has been assigned to food and drink preparation areas, including kitchens and bar areas. Food preparation areas pose a high risk of cross-contamination particularly from uncooked meat and fish, therefore it’s crucial to regulate the use of cleaning products in these areas.

Blue – General Lower Risk Areas (Excluding Food Areas)

Blue has been coded for low-risk areas, such as offices and hallways, and also for general dusting and polishing. As there is usually a lower degree of bacterial contamination in these areas compared to washrooms and food preparation areas, blue coded cleaning products can be used across a broader range of surfaces. The ideal cloth for General lower risk areas would be our Blue All Purpose Cloth in a box for easy transport.

To conclude, we know many nof you do it your way, and thats fine. All’s we ask is that if you do clean multiple areas of your business or home, you don’t mix up the colours.
Big Thanks to Ramon Hygiene for the above Colour Coded references.
