As an employer or office manager, it is your responsibility to keep your office clean and make sure it’s a safe work environment at all times.

COVID-19 has amplified this responsibility and made us all more aware of the cleanliness (or lack of it) of the areas where we spend our time.

While many offices and employees are working remotely during this time, others need to be on-site to complete their work. You can keep your office clean by following these practices, whether your office is at full capacity or only has a few employees present.

Follow CDC Guidelines

The Center for Disease and Control (CDC) has released a thorough set of guidelines for cleaning and sanitizing work spaces and offices. You can read the entire guide at the link above, but here are some of the highlights:

Keep Sanitizers and Disinfectants at the Ready

Some employees may feel nervous at the idea of working in the office again. You can take extra precautionary measures to help them feel more comfortable. This includes keeping virus-killing hand sanitizers at the ready, as well as disinfecting wipes. When these supplies are available, employees are able to help keep their own work spaces clean and frequently disinfected.
