Tork to highlight office hygiene web tool at the Cleaning Show

25 January 2017

Tork is demonstrating its commitment to enhanced office hygiene with a new web tool due to be exhibited for the first time at this year’s Cleaning Show.

The tool will offer practical tips on how to raise the hygiene bar in modern offices. Managers are increasingly understanding how a sustainable, hygienic and pleasant office environment can be instrumental in attracting new talent.

“Having a clean and hygienic office also makes sound business sense because it will improve productivity while reducing incidences of sick leave,” said SCA Brand Communications Manager Amelia Baker.

“Rising property prices and intense competition have led to businesses all over the world starting to rationalise how they use office space. Hygiene challenges may occur when transitioning to a new office environment, for instance when moving from cubicles to a more open-plan approach.

“Our web tool will help customers to consider every aspect of their workspace including how cleaning is planned in different parts of the office. This enables them to make the most out of their office building.”

Today’s increasingly lifestyle-conscious employees are demanding higher workspace standards, she said. The new web tool will highlight office trends and consider how facilities managers can implement more effective cleaning regimes in modern, connected buildings.

It will use research on traffic flows to provide practical insights on where to place dispensers for improved hygiene and cleanliness.

Also included are cleaning checklists plus advice on how to ensure high standards of hygiene in common areas.

“Break rooms are increasingly becoming areas where employees don’t just eat and socialise, they also bring their computers and hold ad hoc meetings,” said Amelia.

“This requires a more flexible maintenance plan in order to ensure good hygiene. Yet it is often unclear whether it is the responsibility of the cleaners or the employees to keep these areas clean.

“The Tork web tool will provide advice precisely for these kinds of situations.”

Tork will also be displaying a range of hand towel, soap, toilet tissue and wiping products at the Cleaning Show.

These will include the Tork SmartOne® Toilet Roll Dispenser and Tork Reflex™ Single Sheet Centrefeed. Also on show will be the ground-breaking Tork EasyCubeTM.

This is designed to make life easier for cleaners and FMs by alerting them via their smartphones when a washroom dispenser is running out of product.

All customers, distributors and visitors will be welcome to visit Tork on stand E06 at the Cleaning Show from March 14-16.
