Top 5 tips for safe practices as we enter Stage 3 in Queensland

From July 3, Queensland enters Stage 3 of the state government’s step-down approach to COVID-19.

As the last phase of the Roadmap to Easing Restrictions, Stage 3 permits a maximum of 100 people for a range of activities, including dining-in, health & fitness, and public gatherings, and authorises the opening of registered and licensed venues.

Whether you are reopening your premises, or you have been open for some time, here are 5 things to consider for safe business operations on July 3 and beyond.

 

 1. Clear and concise cleaning plan

One of the key requirements for open businesses is frequent environmental cleaning and disinfection. This includes regularly wiping down frequently touched surfaces, such as door handles, counters, and chair backs.

During busy periods it may be easy to assume that someone else will take care of this, only to realise later that everyone else had thought the same. Avoid this by ensuring you have established and communicated clear roles and expectations for cleaning!

 

2. Use hospital-grade disinfectants

While sanitising and cleaning throughout the day is very important, supermarket disinfectants do not kill COVID-19 or other major viruses.

To ensure your premises is disinfected from COVID-19, professional misting with a hospital-grade disinfectant, like CMBM’s Nanocyn Disinfectant & Sanitiser, is a must.

Nanocyn is TGA registered to kill SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19), as well as E.coli, MRSA, Influenza Viruses, Streptococcus and more.

CMBM’s disinfection cleaning services also come with a certificate that can be displayed on your premises.

 

3. Identify high traffic areas

Do you have narrow spaces or areas that can create bottlenecks on your site? Is there adequate space for customers to physically distance while queuing?

Identify high traffic areas and make use of queuing systems and physical distancing markers and adjust the floor layout where possible.

 

 4. Make practising good hygiene easy for your customers

Provide hand sanitiser and wipes for your customers in convenient locations, such as at entrances, exits, and counters. Make sure they are clearly signed. This is mandatory for dine-in, beauty therapy, and nail salon businesses.

CMBM can supply your business with sanitisation stations and wall-mounted wet wipe dispensers to make practising good hygiene easy for your customers and staff. Contact us to order today.

 

5. Plan for crowds where possible

If your business experiences higher foot traffic during certain periods, such as the Queensland school holidays (commencing June 27th), ensure you have adequate capacity for conducting business safely.

This may include rostering additional staff, increasing your cleaning capacity, or ensuring you have enough hand sanitiser and face masks in supply.
