SET UP A COLOUR CODED SYSTEM
IN A COMMERCIAL BUSINESS
Colour coding your cleaning equipment is a simple way to prevent harmful bacteria being transferred around your workplace and minimise the risk of infection. Every business can decide on their own colour coded system. Here is the most commonly used rule for assigning colours.
STEP 1: DIVIDE YOUR WORKSPACE UP INTO DIFFERENT ZONES BASED ON THEIR GENERAL USE AND LEVEL OF RISK, THEN ASSIGN DIFFERENT COLOURS TO EACH ZONE.
STEP 2: BUY DIFFERENT COLOURED CLEANING PRODUCTS FOR USE IN EACH AREA.
STEP 3: MAKE ALL STAFF AWARE OF THE COLOUR CODED AREAS USING POSTERS AND LABELS ON CLEANING EQUIPMENT.
STEP 4: STORE CLEANING PRODUCTS CAREFULLY SO THAT DAMP MOPS, BUCKETS AND CLOTHS DO NOT TOUCH.
