Feeling Healthy and Workplace Hygiene
Healthy workplaces make a big difference to the people who work there. Workers feel stronger and more positive with fewer illnesses and low-grade infections. Lack of illness in coworkers is seen as a reflection of the positive work environment. Employer efforts to improve health and hygiene in the workplace is seen as the organization recognizing worker value. Research into the benefits of commercial cleaning and disinfecting services and other workplace environmental care have revealed their morale-boosting as well as health-enhancing effects.
Research Supports a Dual Psychological, Physiological Improvement in Healthy Workplaces
The results of a study published in Public Health Reports explores the importance of addressing worker stress and health. The authors note that “A sick environment can threaten health through biological and psychological pathways.” Conversely, a work environment that improves health also improves stress levels of workers. They feel better, they notice that their colleagues are positive and present, and they observe that their workplace is thriving. The worry and survival fears of an unhealthy workplace are replaced by a positive sentiment. That sentiment is backed up by evidence: fewer sick days.
A Global Focus on the Value of Healthy Workplaces
The World Health Organization produced an extensive report on workplace health in 2010. They observe the importance of reduced accidents and injuries in the workplace, physical health including wellness programs, and mental health issues in the workplace. The authors relate these health concerns to the specific interests of the enterprise: what benefits employee health is also good for the company.
Commercial Cleaning that Makes a Difference
Enviro-Master Services provides several workplace hygiene and disinfection services that provide a clean workplace and prevent the spread of disease-causing organisms. The commercial cleaning and disinfecting service and tile and grout deep cleaning systematically clean spaces with environment- and people-friendly products for a visibly clean space and pathogen removal. The electrostatic spraying service disinfects with products that have been shown by research to continue reducing new pathogens days after application. Commercial drain treatment clears bacteria in drains that process material there, producing foul-smelling gases and potential infection. Specialized commercial restroom cleaning service carefully covers transmission points in addition to standard cleaning, and focuses on this space that doesn’t benefit, as most of a facility usually does, from sunlight’s disinfecting UV rays. With an extra emphasis on viral transmission, the COVID-19 cleaning service adds specific methods and treatments to address this continuing concern.
For Busy Workplaces, Continuously Acting Disinfection
Dr. Charles P. Gerba is a microbiologist and professor at the University of Arizona’s College of Public Health, known for research in continuously active disinfecting agents. He and his associates conducted a microbe transmission study using cultures from busy educational facilities including classrooms, breakrooms, and restrooms. In their report, they discussed products used by companies like Enviro-Master, which were found to virtually eliminate microbes with electrostatic spraying service but also remain to handle additional microbe transmission during the week to come, in some cases with over 90% reduction even after five days.
With the physical and psychological boost that a clean workplace has been shown to provide to workers, and the ongoing protection that modern products provide, it’s time to give Enviro-Master Services a call to find out more.
