A sanitary, healthy and aesthetically pleasing environment is not limited to the inside of a commercial establishment. When customers enter a property, it is vital to have pungent odors controlled, pest infestations minimized or eliminated, and to present a clean, well-maintained appearance. First impressions are everything and can make or break a business! The end goal of a business is to DRAW customers, not send them packing. If your establishment looks dirty, smells foul, and has insect and/or pest infestations, you will lose customers as you are sending messages of poor quality, indifferent service, lack of hygiene and potentially unsafe surroundings. One of the most obvious areas of any property with the potential for posing contamination risks and health hazards is the trash can or dumpster area. Trash areas are the ultimate breeding ground for many microorganisms and pests that threaten both health and the environment, many of which are also airborne, eliminating boundaries to contain risks.
In today’s economy, competition is stiff, and business owners or their management should do everything possible to present their businesses in the best light possible, over and above competitors. A little extra effort in the areas of esthetics and a healthy environment is one of the easiest and most cost effective ways to set your business apart from all of the others. Best of all, you, as the business owner or management, don’t have to do the work but will reap the benefits!
Unsanitary conditions also pose health risks to employees, which could result in increased turnover rates which decrease the overall efficiency of the company, costing the company time and money. Each employee has company money invested in them through the recruiting and training processes, not to mention possibly benefits packages, including health and/or disability insurance. If an employee becomes ill due to unhealthy work conditions, this can be very costly to a company. A sick employee may be paid sick pay while they are out of work, during which time productivity is also lost, or there may even be the possibility of having to pay out Workers’ Compensation or disability benefits, which can be extremely expensive. Paying out these types of benefits can also lead to increased insurance costs to a company. All of these scenarios can have a significant negative financial impact on a business.
If an employee resigns due to an unacceptable work environment, managers and/or human resources staff may spend time conducting exit interviews, advertising the job, recruiting candidates and interviewing. During the time in which the position is open, other employees are often left to cover multiple jobs until the new employee is hired and trained, which decreases morale, productivity, momentum and continuity.
Another critical issue is the possibility of a customer becoming ill or being exposed to an unsanitary environment. Public exposure to any environmental contamination is possibly one of the costliest and most negative occurrences any business can experience. Much media attention is devoted to this topic on a daily basis, and environmental threats are increasing rapidly. Not only does an occurrence of this nature negatively impact a business and its reputation, but lawsuits resulting from a variety of problems related to such occurrences are highly prevalent in today’s world and can financially devastate a business to the point of shutting it down.
