Cleaning/handwashing and hygiene procedures

Developing cleaning/handwashing and hygiene procedures


Employers should increase the frequency of handwashing and surface cleaning in the workplace by:

· Encouraging frequent and thorough handwashing, reinforced by signage and clear notices reminding employees how to do this effectively;

· Providing hand sanitisers around the workplace and at entry and exit points;

· Cleaning workplaces more frequently, paying close attention to high-contact objects and surfaces like door handles and keyboards; and

· Providing hand drying facilities, either paper towels or electrical dryers.
