Dirty Details: Why Your Business Should Have High Hygiene Standards

Dirty Details: Why Your Business Should Have High Hygiene Standards
  • Opening Intro -

    Companies that want to be successful need to maintain high-level hygiene standards as one of their primary goals in dealing with the public.

-------------------------------------

Although definitions of cleanliness may vary, most people will agree on the following standards. If it up to management to set reasonable goals and to enforce them consistently among all employees.

Personal Grooming

Employees represent the company image. Everyone should be held to a high standard of personal grooming that customers expect to work with. This includes neat clothing or company uniform, tidy hair, general cleanliness, lack of body odor, and dental hygiene.

An employee should appear to be prepared to deal personably with the public by maintaining an attractive, neat appearance overall.

Company Dress Code

All employees should be expected to conform to the company dress code. If there is not a clearly defined dress code in print, one should be developed and circulated so everyone knows how to dress.

Guidelines should cover all aspects of physical appearance from hair and fingernails, if included, as well as uniform or style of clothing to wear as well as examples of what is not appropriate.

Some companies include statements about hair length or styles, jewelry, cosmetics, and body art such as visible tattoos and piercings. Shoes may be another item to be addressed. Everyone should know what to wear to work as well as what is considered to be unacceptable.

Bodily Infestations

Any employee who reports the existence of physical pest infestations or who is reported with such by other employees or customers should be sent home until the problem has been completely resolved. Pest problems include but are not necessarily limited to body lice, scabies, ringworm, or bedbugs.

Some, like lice or bedbugs, can be spread around the company or picked up by other employees or customers. When noted, a professional pest control company should be contacted and scheduled to visit the worksite for a comprehensive evaluation of the premises. If pests are noted, the workplace will have to be treated. The presence of any sort of pests of this type is bad for business and may cause the company to fail.

How we dress at work represents our personal and professional statement of who we are, both individually and as a company employee. To maintain high standards of hygiene and cleanliness, as well as ensure that employees aptly represent the company they work for, a clear-cut dress code and prompt responses to concerns or violations is necessary.
