We are currently seeing the growth of new companies that employ a lot of staff. The law lays down rules for them. Indeed, employers must respect the rights of the employees provided for by the law. This is why they must follow a certain professional and personal hygiene within the company.
Occupational hygiene, essential for employees
Sometimes daily cleaning does not ensure optimal hygiene. Examples include simple hand washing or cleaning for room hygiene. Personal hygiene, therefore, becomes an obligation and a rule that companies must always respect. Let’s take the example of employees working in industrial companies. They are always exposed to toxic and chemical products. This is why even a hygienic gesture that one thinks is personal becomes a rule of professional hygiene. To this end, it applies to all employees, in order to ensure their health and safety.
The application of health rules is therefore important in a company. It is not only good for the employees, but also for the company. Healthy employees contribute to the prosperity of the company.
The importance of personal hygiene
The personal hygiene we are talking about concerns employees as well. It is about meeting their personal needs and strengthening their personal health in working life.
In a society, there are as many women as men. We all know that men and women do not have the same hygiene needs. For women, for example, hygiene at work is very important, especially during menstruation or pregnancy. It therefore requires a specific hygiene program, such as a sanitary napkin and tampons dispenser or plastic bags for vomiting. Companies should also put garbage bags at every corner to keep the area clean and thus ensure the good health of everyone in the company.
The different types of professional and personal hygiene instruments
Technology is changing very quickly these days. Many inventions are made to ensure the proper application of health safety rules in the company. These new devices ensure hygiene at work and are implemented after consultation with safety and hygiene committees. These include air purifiers, disposable or sanitary towels, hand dryers, tools for good hand washing techniques, antibacterial liquids, etc. These tools help to ensure good health in the company.
