Coronavirus Management Guide For Gold Coast Workplaces

Our Approach To Cleaning During Coronavirus Crisis

Just like you, we care about our workers and will always put their safety first.

And just like you, it is prudent to take precautions. In that respect, we’ve got you and our cleaners covered.

We have issued, hand soap, gloves and masks to our cleaners to keep them and you safe.

For weeks now, we have switched our normal Spray ‘n’ Wipe to a high grade Germicide and Disinfectant.

This product is the highest grade disinfectant available for use on all hard surfaces except for actual medical operating theatres.

We want you to know that you are in good hands.

One customer, an international school, asks us to use it on their floors – you can too, just ask.

Cleaning Touch Points where Coronavirus is thought to live, has always been part of our MO – Make it part of yours too.

We have been cleaning touch points for over 10 years so our cleaners are used to wiping handles, switches and doors etc. Most companys’ don’t bother.

Recommended Non-Standard Cleaning

Many of our customers have asked us to provide the following services, each clean:

  • Disinfect all telephone handsets
  • Disinfect all telephones
  • Wipe ALL desks
  • Wipe desk, kitchen and other chairs including armrests
  • Wipe all computer keyboards and mouse
  • Clean all handles

Our fees for same are higher than ordinary because there is more work involved but are in line with our ordinary fees.

No Price Gouging Policy During Corona Virus Crisis

We have already made it a policy not to price gouge. We are quoting our usual rate and will only charge more for extra cleaning and for specific requests to clean everything after an outbreak.

What Is Your Coronavirus Plan?

Please feel free to use the text below to develop ideas and strategy but understand it not meant to be professional advice.

Observe The Basics At All Times

  1. Wash Hands Frequently. Effective washing means washing with soap and rubbing vigorously for at least 20 seconds.
  2. Sneeze into a tissue or an elbow
  3. Avoid Touching your face
  4. Wipe down touch points as often as possible
  5. Eliminate “Hot Desks”
  6. Send people for Medical Testing if they have Flu-like symptoms.

Part 1 – Who are you and your workers coming into contact with?

Part 1A – Your workplace

It is prudent to have policy around access to your workplace for your workers and visitors. You may consider restricting access, especially to people Health Authorities deem to be at high risk

There are tools you can use to limit risk:

A: Mandatory Reporting

If you have workers who have been in contact with people thought to be at high risk by health authorities or people self reporting or observed with flu-like symptoms, especially a dry cough or fever, send them home to seek medical attention asap.

B: The sign-in book. Consider adding rows to your existing book or getting a new book. Add columns to help you determine their risk level.

For example, ask them to identify if they have recently travelled overseas and if so, where and when did they return? Have they come into contact with anybody with flu-like symptoms? Ask if they have flu-like symptoms.

Refuse entry to your workplace for anybody you feel is “high risk”

Sending Workers Outside The Workplace

Consider the supply of masks, gloves and hand soap for those that have to work in spaces not directly controlled by you.

N95 Respirator masks are recommended by health authorities as being effective against Covid-19.

 Object Distancing – Try Not Touc Touch Things You Do Not Need To

Ask workers to refrain from touching non-essential touchpoints. These include (where safe to not touch):

  • Railings of all sorts
  • Glass
  • Doors
  • Door Frames
  • Other Peoples desks
  • Other people’s phones
  • Lift doors
  • Glass mirrors and walls inside lifts
  • Walls
  • Sills

Unavoidable Touching

Consider the provision of gloves or for when touching touch points is necessary such as using:

  • Telephones
  • Telephone keypads
  • Light switches seats and buttons
  • Toilet
  • Railings such as stair railings
  • Lift Buttons
  • Toilet seats
  • Taps
  • Office equipment
  • Kitchen appliances
  • Kitchen containers
  • Sinks
  • Dishwashers
  • Microwaves and ovens
  • Alarm keypads
  • Seat Armrests

Long Clothing Mandatory

Where people routinely contact touch points with arms or elbows, consider, if needed, relaxing uniform policy in favour of long sleeved shirts and slacks or trousers.

Stay at Home or Work From Home Policy

Reduce risk by having workers work from home – as many as you can manage with priority to those considered by health authorities to be high risk.

Need Extra Cleaning? – Just Ask

Many of our customers have already asked us to complete, extra cleans, or to do cleaning above their normal specifications in order to satisfy their need to protect their workers.

We have been able to accommodate their requests mainly on the same day.

We welcome your requests too!
