3 Ways To Prevent The Spread Of Illnesses In Your Office Kitchen

Karl Henderson

Whether you're worried about COVID-19 taking hold in your office, or you just want to make sure your office is protected against any future viruses that may come into play, it's a good idea to focus on your kitchen. Office kitchens can be a breeding ground for viruses, bacteria and other infectious spores that could make your staff ill and put your business out of action for a long time. Thankfully, you don't have to ban your staff from using the communal kitchen entirely. As long as you take these three precautions, you should be about to significantly reduce the risk of illnesses like coronavirus spreading.

1. Install hand sanitisers at every door

To start with, install hand sanitisers at the entrance and exit of your kitchen area along with signage reminding your employees to keep their hands clean at all times. Touching an infected surface before eating can quickly transfer viruses and bacteria into the body, so hand sanitiser is a must in any office kitchen. Once you've installed sanitising stations, make sure you also keep them topped up with a safe and effective sanitiser at all times. It is also a good idea to keep some antibacterial wipes and antiseptic spray around, too, for staff who are happy to spend a little extra time clearing up after themselves.

2. Don't let staff share utensils

Unless you trust your staff to thoroughly wash their utensils after use, it's best to ensure that there are enough cups, plates, forks and knives for everyone to have their own utensils during one lunch or break period. If you can't afford to stock your whole communal kitchen with utensils for everyone or you simply don't have the space, consider asking staff to bring their own cooking and eating equipment to work with them.

3. Clean more often

Ultimately, one of the best ways to reduce the spread of illness is to clean your office kitchen more regularly. Any surfaces your staff members touch regularly, such as counters and appliances, should be scrubbed down as often as possible. By disinfecting your kitchen after every period of high use (for example, lunch and break times), you'll remove the harmful particles before they multiply and take hold. Of course, while your staff may be happy to clean up after themselves, many won't take well to being asked to deep clean the communal kitchen. That's why it's a good idea to employ the services of a commercial cleaning company. Commercial cleaners know how to disinfect spaces quickly and efficiently, leaving you to work on what's important.
