Sanitary and Safety Practice Before and After Office Moves
- Even eco-friendly businesses generate a large amount of waste. Handle waste as hygienically as possible by keeping garbage bins away from employee/client areas, emptying them often and washing them as deemed necessary based on condition.
- Cleaning products should be used as instructed and on recommendations from suppliers only. Gloves should always be worn, and surfaces washed completely before disinfecting. Any spills or accidents should be reported to the supervisor on duty.
- Wash hands properly with warm water and soap after cleaning is completed. Hand sanitizers and other personal products should be well stocked and available.
- Electrical outlets and equipment should be installed correctly by a professional and inspected on a regular basis. However, businesses should also monitor the condition of any electrical items and report anything that looks irregular. Cords should not be worn or placed improperly as a tripping hazard.
- Fire exits should be clearly marked and extinguishers placed in obvious places. Employees should be trained on proper use of an extinguisher and they should be regularly maintained.
- Vents must be monitored and inspected on a regular basis. If they are dirty or blocked, this can cause health issues as well as personal safety. It is also a fire hazard.
- The most important part of a sanitation/safety plan is having all the information needed readily available. During your company’s office moving and after the office moving, properly posted safety signs and information are essential to have. Emergency numbers any hazardous material warnings and all other related information should be posted.
