Hygiene is an important part of all businesses, whether that be in relation to office hygiene or to operations. Yet some industries hinge their ability to provide products and services through their high standards of hygiene. Food manufacturing, catering and pharmaceuticals are just a few industries who would strictly adhere to this to maintain a safe operation.
Often the focus of hygiene has been on ensuring that people have cleaned themselves appropriately before performing tasks. Although this is important, what can be overlooked is the cleaning and maintenance of the tools that are used during this work.
If tools are not cleaned thoroughly or organised efficiently, they will be used for a variety of tasks and potentially crossing different areas of a business. As a result, this can spread bacteria contaminating products, causing health issues and risking your business’ reputation.
