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.

Coaching Made Easy with LeslieRugby and CrestClean

Coaches from Pukekohe with John Leslie and the 12-13 year olds who demonstrated the skills drills at a recent clinic for junior rugby team coaches.

Coaches from Pukekohe with John Leslie and the 12-13 year olds who demonstrated the skills drills at a recent clinic for junior rugby team coaches.

Even if you’ve played years of professional rugby for international unions and were Captain of Scotland, it doesn’t mean you know how to coach 7-year-olds.

“When I turned up to manage and coach my son’s Under-7 team it was really disorganised,” recalls John Leslie, former Highlanders centre and one of the Kilted Kiwis who played for Scotland in the late ‘90s. “I got the kids moving, but they’re hard to manage at that age group because they’re so young.”

“By the time it came to Under-9, I was really busy and turning up to coach after work, trying to make it up on the spot. I was drawing on my own experiences, which are extensive, but at the end of the day it gave me nothing – even with my rugby background. I wasn’t managing the kids effectively.”

John recognised that if he was having a tough go of it, there were probably a lot of other Kiwi dads and mums out there who were, too. So, the LeslieRugby “Junior Team Coaching” clinic series was “born out of necessity.”

“The objective is to show dads and mums how to easily run a first class, one hour rugby coaching session, so I put together a programme of skills based around core rugby content, such as ball placement, tackling, catch/pass/run, with hundreds of touches, in a small area of space that’s easy to manage. This helps the coach know what to do and manage the kids while communicating well with them,” says John. View More >>

Wiri Oil Shows Appreciation

Wiri Oil HSSE Assurance Manager Natalee Scripps with CrestClean franchisee Dinesh Prasad and his award for excellent service.

Wiri Oil HSSE Assurance Manager Natalee Scripps with CrestClean franchisee Dinesh Prasad and his award for excellent service.

When CrestClean’s Regional Manager for South and East Auckland, Viky Narayan was called into the Wiri Oil Services office for a special meeting, he was concerned.

Turns out, it was to see one of his franchisees receive top praise. As part of Wiri Oil’s performance management system, contractors who work with the company are regularly measured and assessed, and top performers are nominated for recognition in order to encourage quality service and accountability.

CrestClean franchisee Dinesh Prasad received a nomination from General Manager Ian Cummings, who noted as reasons: using the standard work chart and cleaning the fridge. “It’s immaculate,” he wrote.

Dinesh was presented with a $100 MTA voucher for his excellent work.

“I think it’s a great achievement for us. Go Crest!” says Viky. “ What a pleasant surprise.”

Wiri Oil has been with CrestClean since 2009. “They’re very good customers,” adds Viky. “I really appreciate the quality control processes they have in place and how well they work with Crest’s systems. It makes for an excellent relationship for both parties.”

Congratulations Dinesh and keep up the great work!

Toilets – The Great Escape

Finally some time alone. Clean, hygienic workplace washrooms are more important now than ever.

Finally some time alone. Clean, hygienic workplace washrooms are more important now than ever.

Just in case you need another reason to have clean toilets, here it is: turns out people are doing a lot more in there than the usual.

A consumer study released by SCA, a hygiene products company, shows a surprising number of people use their workplace washrooms to eat, exercise, sleep, have a cry and as a getaway destination.

Though the study was conducted in 13 countries, SCA reported the US results, which showed that 8 percent of people were eating in the washrooms, 7 percent exercising, 5 percent smoking and 5 percent sleeping. Texting and talking on the phone were also popular washroom activities. View More >>
