Your ultimate winter checklist for the workplace

Written by Bakang Kganyago
Workplace Hygiene, Cleanliness and Hygiene

Preventing illnesses at work this winter is easy with Initial and our range of hygiene consumables and services. Here's our ultimate winter checklist to prepare your office for the cold season (and a possible third wave). 

Did you know, according to Medical Academic, South Africans spend an estimated R500 million on cough medicine annually, and absenteeism costs the South African economy around R12 - R16 billion per year? This is a testament to the impact illnesses have on South Africans. 

Previous blogs have discussed in length how viruses and illnesses spread in the workplace - often through cross-contamination - and the hygiene solutions that you can put in place to minimise the risk of cross-infection. To sum up, all of these previous posts we’ve prepared a quick checklist to help you protect your office this winter season. 

Work through the checklist below and see whether your office is properly equipped for the winter flu season and the COVID-19 third wave. And if not, rest assured that Initial is here to help. We offer hygiene consumables such as soap, sanitiser and paper towel serviced on a frequency that suits your particular workplace as well as state-of-the-art air purification solutions such as the VIRUSKILLER™.
