Before the outbreak of a global pandemic, health issues were already causing a hefty financial burden for businesses. According to a report released by the Integrated Benefits Institute, illness-related absences cost employers $530 billion in the year 2017.
But these days it’s never been more important for businesses to have a clean work environment—not just for physical health, but for mental well-being, too.
As people begin to emerge from quarantine and slowly return to their regular shopping habits, the No. 1 concern will be cleanliness and safety.
Though many businesses offer verbal or written reassurance that they are practicing thorough sanitizing protocol, some patrons want a guarantee. They need to feel confident that businesses are taking the necessary precautions to prevent the spread of illness.
That’s where one Utah company can help.
Peace of mind for patrons
Safe from Spread is a Utah company that takes workplace sanitation to the next level. The company understands that pandemic-era consumers need peace of mind when it comes to their health and safety. They don’t just need you to tell them your business is clean; they need you to prove it.
That’s why Safe from Spread uses a GoPro camera to document the entire process. Businesses can then post these videos on their websites and social media pages so that customers can see for themselves that the environment has been thoroughly sanitized.
Once the job is complete, the businesses receive a big sticker to post on their front door or window that reads, "Safe from Spread."
It’s not enough to just sanitize your workplace, it’s essential to communicate that effort with your customers and patrons. Having video proof will help your customers feel at ease about walking in your establishment.
Safe cleaning for all surfaces
Safe From Spread’s organic sanitizer works on any surface and will help you feel comfortable in your workplace. More importantly, it can help keep your workplace safe from the spread of viruses and bacteria.
Since the solution relies on the power of oxygen, virtually any surface can be sanitized—including electronics and upholstery.
The active ingredient in their sanitizer is industrial-grade hydrogen peroxide, which is approved by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Not only does this protect against COVID-19, but it also kills influenza and other harmful illnesses. Hydrogen peroxide has been shown to be effective at destroying 99.9% of bacterias and viruses.
Once your workplace has been sanitized, the hydrogen peroxide decomposes and evaporates into oxygen over the space of three hours.
Multiple services provided
In addition to thorough sanitation, Safe from Spread provides several options to help prevent the spread of bacteria and viruses. They can help to create a hands-free environment by installing foot pull openers on all public doors. This reduces the likelihood that viruses will be spread through indirect contact. Additionally, businesses have the option of setting up sanitation stations to ensure everyone has access to the materials and products necessary to keep their workspace safe.
Since knowledge is power, Safe from Spread can even help to educate the office on best practices for preventing the spread of illness.
