Prioritising The Most Commonly Touched Item In The Building
Hand washing is like a "do-it-yourself" vaccine that gives everyone the opportunity to avoid getting sick. By washing hands regularly and sharing our hand washing techniques with others, team members take an active role in improving their own health, the health of their family and the health of those they work with.
Sick team members are less productive when they come to work and may spread the illness to others. Promoting hand washing whilst at work can help to reduce team member illnesses and the number of absences due to illness.
A recent study showed that only 31% of men and 65% of women wash their hands after using a public restroom.
It is well-known that when cleaning any workspace or office area, objects that are often prioritised are toilets, bins, telephones, or keyboards, as these are considered to receive the most physical contact throughout the day.
However, you might be surprised to find out that some of the most touched items in your building are often neglected are doors.
Doors are touched every time someone comes in and out of a building or from one office or room to another.
The next quarterly OHS meeting will be held on the 17th of May 2021 using Microsoft Teams run by Louie with AM Retail managers and employee representatives. There were no lost time injuries in January and February 2021 and no environmental incidents and no fines from regulators.
