Do you want to be eating at a restaurant table that was wiped with the same cloth as the toilet seat.
This and many other variations of the above story really happen. Using the same cleaning tools throughout different areas of a facility effectively spreads disease and bacteria. And that’s not great for the health of staff and visitors.
Colour-coding your cleaning supplies, tools, equipment and cleaning chemicals creates a cleaner and safer work environment.
With colour coding it’s easier to be organised, train staff, reduce the risks of cross-contamination and achieve higher levels of hygiene within a facility.
▪ Improve safety for staff, customers, guests, visitors and patients
▪ Reduce the risk of cross-contamination and spreading of disease
▪ Widely accepted system makes staff training a breeze
▪ Meet and exceed workplace health and safety and accreditation requirements
Who is a colour-coded cleaning program designed for?
▪ Hospitals, aged care and medical centres
▪ Hotels, motels, resorts and tourist parks
▪ Clubs, casinos and theme parks
▪ Schools, universities and childcare centres
▪ Restaurants, takeaway shops, food service and food manufacturing
▪ Commercial cleaners, offices and government
▪ Industry, automotive, manufacturing and mining
▪ and wherever facility hygiene is a priority.
