Stay Alert, Protect The NHS, Save Lives

Government Guidance For Business Hygiene

The UK government has released a series of guidelines for UK businesses that are set to reopen in the coming days, weeks and months. 

One key area is section '5.3 Hygiene: handwashing, sanitation facilities and toilets' - this section goes over the need for businesses to promote good hygiene to their team and their customers.

Here are the important parts of this guide:

Steps that will usually be needed:

  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 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 – paper towels, continuous roller towels or electrical driers.
