Surfaces that are directly touched by the skin, notably the hand, can be a source of transmission to staff and customers. Frequently touched surfaces can become increasingly contaminated and have a greater risk of transmission if no remedial action is taken to reduce cross-contamination. Every area in your business should be disinfected and cleaned thoroughly and regularly.
It’s important that you keep your staff and customers safe, minimise risk and create hygienic environments across your facility. Their awareness of the importance of hygiene will have increased over the last few months and your business will need to provide reassurance and cater for these increased expectations.
Surface hygiene refers to keeping surfaces clean and free of germs and bacteria to prevent the spread of illness and disease. This includes a variety of practices, such as cleaning surfaces regularly and disinfecting high-touch surfaces using cleaning products, such as disinfectants or sanitisers, to kill germs on these surfaces.
Surface hygiene is vital in various settings, including homes, offices, schools, and healthcare facilities. Proper surface hygiene can help reduce the risk of infection and illness and contribute to a healthier and more hygienic environment.
To disinfect a surface means to clean it using a disinfectant product or process to kill germs and bacteria. Disinfecting a surface is different from cleaning it, as it removes dirt, dust, and other contaminants, while disinfecting a surface kills germs and bacteria.
Overall, disinfecting a surface involves using a disinfectant product or process to kill germs and bacteria and requires proper preparation, application, and follow-up steps to ensure that the surface is adequately disinfected.
To ensure cleanliness and stop the spread of infections, your business can take measures to reduce the risks of contamination so that the premises are in a suitable condition for staff and customers.
Surfaces in a building can become hotspots for cross-contamination of germs if they are not regularly wiped and disinfected. Particular attention needs to be paid to:
Using an integrated approach to hygiene – involving a number of interventions to minimise cross contamination risk along the journey of the germ – is the most effective way to limit the spread of harmful germs.
