Video: Dr Gerba talks Office Hygiene

Dr Charles P. Gerba, a Professor of microbiology from the University of Arizona, points out the areas we should be concerned about in an average workplace, plus gives some quick basic tips on how to prevent the build up of bacteria and disease.

Dr Gerba’s most recent research uncovers the link between unhygienic workplaces and sickness, and the affect on productivity.

Can you afford to lose productivity? The average office desk has 400 times more bacteria than a toilet seat. The desk may look clean, but is it really?

Office Cleaning Services

Office Cleaning ServicesCrestClean office cleaning is more than just cleaning. Our aim is to create Healthy Clean Workplace environments for an organisation’s customers and staff. Having a clean and hygienic office is the simplest way to improve your workplace environment. It’s not an easy task: Staff eat at desks, they leave food in the fridge, they put their grubby hands everywhere, contaminating touch points: it’s estimated that 80% of infections are transmitted by touch. “Hot Desking” adds to the hygiene dilemma, as do sharing computer mice and telephones. Employers have a statutory requirement to provide clean and hygienic workplaces. A dirty workplace is often cited as a reason why staff leave.

Cleaning retail stores, showrooms

Presentation is everything in a retail or high foot traffic environment. Gleaming windows, shining floors and beautifully presented product are all part of attracting people into your space. Customers walk in with dirt and debris off the street…they also bring coughs, colds and the flu; potentially contaminating your environment. Cross contamination is now recognised as a leading cause of workplace sickness, and it is largely unseen. Germs pass from customer to staff, staff to staff, and next thing you have absenteeism. CrestClean utilises colour-coded microfibre cloths to clean hygienically, and Rubbermaid microfibre mops to clean floors expertly.

Health and Safety the Buzz in Blenheim

CrestClean’s display table showcased our environmentally responsible chemicals and information on SafeClean, our Health, Safety and Environmental Management System.

CrestClean’s display table showcased our environmentally responsible chemicals and information on SafeClean, our Health, Safety and Environmental Management System.

Marlborough’s annual Health and Safety Expo was another great success for Barbara de Vries, CrestClean’s Regional Director for Blenheim and Nelson. This year brought more businesses and business owners by CrestClean’s display table, resulting in many new leads and connections, she says.

“Last year there was a lot more of the general public at the expo and this year there were more business owners,” notes Barbara. That mirrors what’s occurring throughout the New Zealand business community as the government’s recent reforms to workplace health and safety laws go into effect in just a few short months. The new law puts more responsibility on business owners to ensure their workplaces are safe and compliant.

“Many of the business owners I spoke with were interested in our cleaning services and being able to tell people about our new Health and Safety Management System was great,” says Barbara.

CrestClean’s Health and Safety Management System, SafeClean, follows industry ‘best practice’ and is designed to minimise risks and ensure compliance. Our personnel undergo mandatory health and safety training, site inductions to specific risks and hazards, and robust documentation and monitoring. View More >>

CrestClean Expands Business into Blenheim

Regional Director of Nelson, Barbara de Vries, is ready to expand her business into the Blenheim region.

Regional Director of Nelson, Barbara de Vries, is ready to expand her business into the Blenheim region.

It’s been a busy year for Barbara de Vries. Just fifteen months after becoming Regional Director of the Nelson area, Barbara has taken on the additional role of Regional Director for Blenheim, and is excited about this new challenge.

Although Blenheim was previously covered under the Nelson region, Crest felt it would benefit from its own identity. Barbara agrees, as the new region allows her to bring a more personal touch to the area.

The opportunity to expand into Blenheim came up via a customer referral. The Marlborough Kindergarten Association in Blenheim was looking for a new cleaning company that could keep their premises spic and span. The Nelson Kindergarten Association was so pleased with the service they receive from Barbara’s team, that they were happy to refer Crest as a great service provider.

She already has a stellar team onboard with Franchisees Shajahan Pullurchangattil and his wife Sunaina Shajahan. They are looking forward to running their own business taking care of four kindergartens and one office block. After successfully completing training with Crest, Shajahan and Sunaina are eager to apply their knowledge in providing high standards of cleaning and hygiene for their customers.

Perfect Attendance from Whangarei Teams

CrestClean Managing Director addressing Whangarei’s franchisees at their first team meeting.

CrestClean has grown steadily since its inception in Dunedin back in 1996, and now operates in 24 regions throughout New Zealand. Whangarei is one of the newer areas of expansion and recently the four dedicated franchisee teams from the Northland gathered for their first team meeting with CrestClean’s Managing Director Grant McLauchlan.

“It went really well,” says Neil Kumar, Regional Director for Whangarei and North Harbour. “We had 100 percent attendance and Grant was there to share news and information about the company, which was really good for my teams to hear.”

Neil says growth has been slow but steady since he took on the region about a year and a half ago, but he’s excited to announce a fifth franchisee from Kerikeri will soon be starting.

Grant McLauchlan, who has been busy over the past few months travelling to each region individually and hearing about CrestClean operations from franchisees, has only good things to say after meeting with the new region. “CrestClean Whangarei and surrounding districts are destined to have a very positive future,” he says. “From market intelligence and customer feedback received we believe the region has been very poorly serviced historically and Neil has done a great job of building a solid foundation to date.”
