To prevent harmful bacteria being spread around your workplace, and to help eliminate the risk of infection, colour code your cleaning equipment. Many businesses have their own colour coded system in place, but these are the most commonly assigned colours.
Based on their general use and risk levels, divide your workspace up into different areas. Assign a different colour to each area.
Buy different coloured cleaning products to be used in each area.
Make sure that all staff are trained and aware of the colour coded system. Use posters and labels on cleaning equipment as a reminder.
Store cleaning products and equipment carefully so that damp mops, buckets, sponges and cloths do not touch.
