Hygiene Systems Check

Every purchase you make for your office has the potential to make a difference whether good or bad. Including those products, you need but have never given much thought to.

The hygiene systems you implement into your business play a significant role in the cleanliness of your workplace, your product and on your absenteeism.

Poor hand hygiene is more prevalent than expected.

  • 95% of people fail to wash their hands properly
  • 50% of foodborne illness outbreaks are caused by failure to wash hands.
  • 1 in 8 New Zealanders become ill from foodborne illness each year
  • 17 of those dying.

If you have poorly functioning hygiene systems for your specific workplace you could be placing your business at risk. If you produce products that can easily be contaminated by germs your business could face a costly recall if a customer falls ill. $10m is the average cost of a food recall, following that 55% of consumers say they would switch brands following a recall.

Employees that get sick from poor hygiene systems can cost you an average of 37% in productivity due to absenteeism; totalling $1b per year for New Zealand businesses.

Having the proper hygiene systems in place along with proper training can have a bigger impact on your business than you may have thought.
