Educational environments such as schools, colleges and universities have a high risk of cross contamination due to the large number of people who use the premises and services.

Initial Hygiene understands that teaching children the importance of hygiene is an essential part of their education and that preventing the spread of bacteria is critical in all educational establishments to ensure a dynamic learning environment can be created.

Potential impact of poor hygiene

  • Lack of compliance with health and safety regulations
  • Failure to provide a safe, hygienic learning environment
  • Damage to academic performance
  • Damage to your reputation with current or prospective parents and students
  • Staff become ill and unreliable, creating disruption to the routine

Improving hygiene will help raise performance

  • Good hygiene levels lowers staff absenteeism, resulting in reduced additional cost for supplementary teachers, in addition to salary for staff who are not working
  • Your reputation is maintained, helping you keep enrollment levels up and attract quality teaching staff
  • Avoid fines or lost revenue due to non-compliance with hygiene regulations

Good hygiene is vital to the performance of your business and it applies to all areas of your premises, from bathrooms and kitchen areas, to work spaces and storage areas. People who are more concerned about hygiene are harder to impress. Your hygiene standards should aim to satisfy these end users.
