Hygiene services for offices

As people contemplate spending large amounts of their daily lives in offices once again, where shared spaces and surfaces are very likely, it’s important to safeguard these environments from the spread of germs and viruses. The more time colleagues spend at high-touch areas such as desks, kitchens and washrooms, the higher the risk of contamination.

Office environments provide the ideal conditions for bacteria and viruses to spread and illnesses to take hold. In fact, 60% of work illnesses that result in time off are contracted from dirty office equipment. Unhygienic washrooms can often be the source, offering optimal breeding environments for pathogens to thrive. Combined with poor hygiene behaviours, the problem is exacerbated as germs in the washroom make their way onto hands and are then spread throughout the office.

Ensuring high levels of hygiene in offices

Office and facilities managers can ensure the highest possible hygiene standards to protect the health of staff and visitors and the impact on staff morale and the company image. 

Initial’s hygiene solutions are expertly designed to meet the needs of your office so your business remains hygienic and productive.

Good hygiene practices are essential for disrupting the transmission of germs and protecting premises and the people in them from further risks, especially at cross-contamination hotspots.

Entrances and exits

Germs can be brought into your business by visitors or staff. Having the right floor mats for your business can stop dirt and water in their tracks.

Staff and visitor hand hygiene

Ensuring effective hand hygiene facilities – for handwashing, drying and hand sanitising – are available both inside and outside washrooms can help protect your staff and customers. 

Frequently touched objects

Surface hygiene solutions can reduce risks of infection by sanitising frequently touched objects such as door handles, lift buttons, stair rails.


Toilet seats, sinks and flush handles can transmit germs. Regularly sanitise surfaces. All female washrooms should be well-provisioned with feminine hygiene facilities.

In your buildings

Air care solutions across your facility are vital to help avoid the spread of germs.  Our air purification solutions filter harmful airborne particles and microorganisms, delivering a healthier indoor environment.

Canteens and kitchens

Communal areas such as canteens and kitchens can harbour germs. Clean and regularly disinfect surfaces which come into contact with food. Consider touch-free hand wash facilities to minimise contact and cross-contamination.
