Having good hygiene standards is vital to minimise the risk of cross-infection. Multiple visitors and frequently touched surfaces heighten the risk of infection transmission in a retail environment. Consumers too, are much more aware of hygiene standards than ever before. In fact, 71% are now more fearful of the spread of germs via the surfaces they touch than before the COVID-19 pandemic*. A comfortable and hygienic experience goes a long way in improving a customer’s perceptions and gaining their confidence and loyalty.
As the world-leading hygiene experts, Initial can help you minimise the risk of infections being passed on via surfaces, hands and air. Our integrated hygiene solutions enable high levels of hygiene to be maintained and reduce risks for staff and customers.
Germs can be brought into your business by customers or staff. Hand sanitisers that kill germs can be positioned in the most convenient locations, such as entry points, to promote frequent use.
High levels of footfall, close contact between people and surfaces, and the storage of different food and materials mean that surface hygiene and air care solutions across your facility are vital to help avoid the spread of germs.
Frequently touched objects such as door handles, clothes hangers and shopping trolleys can facilitate cross-contamination. Surface hygiene solutions can reduce risks of infection by sanitising these touchpoints.
Staff working in kitchens, food preparation areas and fresh-food counters can transmit bacteria and viruses onto equipment, surfaces and the food itself – compromising food safety. Effective hand hygiene facilities and surface hygiene programmes are crucial in these locations.
Toilet seats, sinks and flush handles can transmit germs. Regularly sanitise surfaces. All-female washrooms should be well-provisioned with feminine hygiene facilities.
