5 Catchy Hygiene Posters for your Workplace

5 catchy hygiene posters for your workplace

Anyone can tell you that good hygiene is important. It has undeniable health benefits to it and it is also important socially.

Most people are aware of the importance of hygiene because it is something that they were taught at an early age.

But good hygiene should not only be practiced at home, it should also be maintained in the workplace. People spend many hours in their work and that means there are plenty of health hazards there that can be minimized with the good workplace hygiene practices.

An important step towards ensuring good workplace hygiene is by including it in the employee health program.

Why Workplace Hygiene is Crucial

Although most people are aware as to why good workplace hygiene is important, sometimes they forget it or they feel that it’s inconvenient. That’s why they have to be reminded regularly.

Some workplaces put people together in close proximity to each other. That increases the chance that they could get some kind communicable disease.

Workplaces also have many common areas that are used by everyone. Those spots are touched or used by different people which increases the chance of germs being transferred.

When workers get sick, that can have a negative effect on a business, so it’s crucial that you do everything that you can in order to ensure that they stay healthy all the time.

Most health risks at the workplace can be minimised and avoided with the adoption of good hygiene practice among workers.

Do not assume that because your workers are aware of the importance of these practices that they would do it all the time.They still have to be reminded.

Good Hygiene Posters: Effective and Simple Reminders

There are a lot of methods that you can use in order to remind workers about the importance of workplace hygiene.

While some might think that more direct method such as requiring them to attend a lecture would be more effective, that might be counterproductive. You also have to think about how workers would respond to that.

It might not sit well with some of them that they are being lectured about something as basic as hygiene.

A less obvious way of reminding them is a better approach to take, something that isn’t so direct is going to be a better method.

Using a poster is one of the best means of reminding people on why they should keep hygiene in mind even when they are in the workplace and it comes with many advantages.

Catchy Workplace Hygiene Posters

We all agree now that posters are great for raising awareness about workplace hygiene. Now, here are some of the top posters that you can actually use.

Top 3 Sneaky Profit Killers In Your Salon

Day Spa Rental Linen ideas for your business

Being smart with your time management and cost allocation should be a key area of focus for you as a business owner because failing to do so can set you back in the long run.

Perhaps you’re focusing on the wrong areas of your business to save time and money? Maybe you don’t need more staff working more time or more clients, but a better understanding of the little costs that are eating away your profits.

It is always the little time improvements and cost savings in a business that can so often make the biggest difference. Have you had a close look lately?

Here are the three smallest, sneakiest profit suckers you may not have noticed.

 

#1: Stop Wasting Money Washing Towels

The number 1 complaint from day spa, beauty, nail, hair and therapeutic massage salons is the time and energy cost involved in maintaining towels and linen.

Not only is it a drain on expensive employee time, but the washing process costs a staggering $6.15# for each client.

Few would argue that linen washing is best outsourced to a professional laundry service. In fact, you can recover as much as 66% of this cost, and add to your profit column, by simply renting your linen.

Fluffy towels, soft face washers and luxurious bath robes for your clientele costs as low as $2 per client* with a Day Spa Linen service from Alsco.

For a limited time, you can get a 2-week trial valued up to $200* and kill that sneaky profit killer once and for all.

Not only is outsourcing your washing more cost-effective than you perhaps imagined, but it will save you and your staff time. Which leads us on to the next point.

 

#2: Ditch Those 15-minute Gaps Between Appointments

This next sneaky profit killer comes in a close 2nd place as a drain on profit.

Many stylists have smatterings of 15-minute gaps in their appointment schedule throughout any given day. While it may seem small, have you ever worked out what those 15 minutes are worth?

Perhaps you think you’re being efficient by using those 15 minutes slots for low-value tasks such as washing towels, doing the bank run or updating social media.

Check the timesheet of a busy technician in your business, and count how many 15 minute gaps there are in a day, week, and month. If you found four 15 minute gaps in a day, that’s 60 minutes or the time equivalent of one client.

If your average client bill is $100 for the hour, then that’s $500 a week in lost revenue, assuming that you run a 5 day week.

Taking this a step further, that can add up to $23,000 of lost revenue if the average stylist works 46 weeks per year.

Learn how to banish time gaps at this website and then outsource your laundering.

 

#3 Save Money by Choosing Fake, Not Real

The 3rd sneaky money wasters are the fresh flowers on your reception desk. A brand new concept from Floral Image is making a big impact in Australia and around the world.

Floral Image provides beautiful, life-like, maintenance-free floral arrangements that stay bright and fresh all year long, with no water needed. Totally resistant to the rigours of air conditioning and central heating, you’ll never need to clean up again or call your florist.

Yes, folks! Fake flowers have come a long way in terms of making a great first impression on your clientele. The same as renting fresh, hygienic towels makes sense, you can now rent gorgeous, colourful, artificial flowers.

What’s more, they promise to beat prices on similar-sized fresh flowers from your local florist.

That’s why we love using fake flowers to beat our top 3 list of sneaky money and time wasters.

Take your pick at this website and love the idea of renting instead of buying.

 

Conclusion: Outsource Your Sneaky Time and Money Wasters

Because many salon owners are presently working so hard in their businesses, they often do not make the time to actively evaluate problem areas and take strategic actions to improve their profitability.

Thus, small inefficiencies can sneak their way into your balance sheet; whether they be an unnecessary use of employee resources or an inefficient purchasing decision.

Look for hidden costs that use your employee’s time, and that cost money rather than create profit for the business.

At first glance, for a hard-working salon owner, it may appear to be a good use of the 15-minute gaps between appointments to wash towels or get fresh flowers, but is it really?

Save money by finding the hidden employee and service costs in your salon. Outsource the sneaky time and money wasters and get the profit back into your business.

Business Emergency: How to deal with Telco Outages

Business Emergency: How to Deal With Telco Outages

Small and medium businesses do not just need to prepare for medical emergencies in the workplace, they also need to prepare for unwanted events such as telco outages that can greatly affect daily business activities.

Telstra’s major mobile network outages during recent months remind us just how important it is to have systems in place to deal with failures and to seek the best possible small-business-aware services from your provider.

Be Prepared!!

It is important to develop a plan (often called a Business Continuity Plan) for what you would do if there was a similar network failure in the future. This plan needs to be developed when everything is working and you are relaxed, not when you first hear of an outage.

Ideally, you need a plan for all your services (Mobile, Fixed Voice, Broadband, etc) and to consider different types of outages (partial/total; short/long, continuous/intermittent; single telco/more than one telco affected, etc).

But to keep it simple for this blog, we will cover the main scenarios with the recent Telstra outages: mobile services affected; involving only one mobile provider; somewhere between four hours and several days in length. Here are some things your plan might include (there are many more – have a brainstorming session with your colleagues):

Some Key First Steps

1. Make a short list of critical business activities that would be affected by such an outage e.g. you are:

  • a retailer who uses mobile credit card facilities and a mobile phone for receiving orders, etc,
  • a busy small business owner going to meetings or work sites and relying on online maps to find your way
  • a small business that relies totally on mobile to take and follow up on orders (there are many like this)

2. Decide in advance how critical these activities are to your business – this will dictate things like how much you would be prepared to spend to buy redundancy features, such as spare equipment linked to a different provider.

3. Make an assessment of the likelihood of an event happening e.g. if the likelihood of the event happening is low (say once every 5 years) but the impact is very high (e.g. you lose $15,000 like a case cited in the news), then you can see the value in investing to avoid the worst consequences of an outage.

Scope Out What You Would Actually Do During a Service Failure

If an outage occurred in the future do you have specific responses planned – and written down? Everyone’s circumstances are different and can be much more complex but we will give some simple examples here to establish the concepts:

  • Let’s say that in your planning you decide you would lose $15,000 if there was a five-hour outage, but you also think you could keep the business going if you only had one working mobile phone. Between now and the next outage you could spend $10 per month* for a spare sim card (low-cost plan with an alternate provider). Don’t wait till the outage has occurred, it’s not practical to arrange services at the last minute.
  • You would be $14,400 better off if the predicted outage happened in 5 years’ time. Calls/data would be more expensive on the low-value plan, but you may never have to use it and if you did you would be very glad you had it.
  • If you were a small business owner, such as a hospitality manager, driving to customer sites, your continuity plan might include deciding in advance that you would: a) park your car and catch a taxi/Uber b) drive yourself using a street directory handily placed in the car in advance or c) go back to the office and re-plan your day.
  • If you take all your orders by mobile phone now, consider having a backup land line that you can divert the mobile(s) to in an emergency (an arrangement with a friend or adjacent business, etc).
  • If the equipment is a mobile credit card machine, make sure you always have a paper based (slider) machine for emergencies.
  • Make sure you have, in your plan, all contact details for people/organisations that you need to advise – especially after hours – of the fact that your phones are out; decide in advance if you can send out a bulk email notice and put something on your website (assuming your internet service is not also down)
  • If your company has staff using mobile phones, your plan might include having half of the phones provided by one mobile phone provider and the rest by another one.

It doesn’t matter as much what is in your plan – though clearly that is important – but it is critical that you have one; panicked decisions on the day nearly always lead to chaos – and you could be competing for alternate solutions with everyone else who hasn’t planned.

Make Sure You Use a Quality Provider of Business Grade Services

We are hearing encouraging feedback from small businesses about Optus, Telstra and Vodafone’s new small business initiatives. Digital Ready welcomes these but they don’t go far enough. Service providers should:

  • Differentiate the value of their business offers more clearly so that the small business market can understand what value for money they are getting in selecting a business plan.
  • Offer real service level and performance guarantees to their small business customers

Outages happen from time to time, but small businesses can reduce their losses by asking providers the following questions before choosing a service:

  • What processes are in place to prioritise my faults and business needs?
  • Do you offer alternative communication services if there is an outage/fault?
  • Is this solution compatible with my office equipment? For example, alarms and EFTPOS services?
  • Can I rely on only a 3G/4G mobile service as a fallback in the case of outages?

Is your business ready for outages? Make sure you are. Digital Ready can help you get your business going (even with outages) using digital tools and technologies.

Hiring a Green Consultant: What You Need to Know

Alsco Hiring a Green Consultant: What You Need To Know

Nowadays, every company’s management knows what should be done to make the company environmentally friendly. However, the lack of expertise, funds, or time is often the main reason why companies remain passive in this field.

The good news is, as with everything else in life, there are people educated in the field who can turn things around for your company.

What Is Green Consultancy?

Green consultancy has become one of the professions of the future. According to Green Building Council Australia,  Green Consultancy covers a wide range of professional skills, like the creation and implementation of sustainability strategies and expertise in energy efficiency.

Green consultants help organizations improve and evaluate their internal practices and processes in terms of environmental impact. These consultants can develop a complete plan for green action and assist in the process of implementation of such green strategies, which are ultimately beneficial and effective for each company.

Some giant companies have already opened new work positions, such as “Chief Sustainability Officer.” However, there are a lot of companies that do not have such in-house experts.

With the specific period in the evolution of business sustainability, where the world is situated at the moment, companies are looking for external independent experts to tackle environmental and sustainability challenges.

How to Find the Perfect Green Consultant for Your Company

Adding a green consultant to your team will be extremely important for the overall success of your company. If you want to achieve the best possible results in this sphere, you need to find an experienced and qualified green consultant. Nobody needs an “expert” who fills in documentation and conducts a general assessment of the situation.

What to Look for When Hiring a Green Consultant

Qualifications

It is recommended to look for a consultant who has a fruitful background in the built environment. Another thing that every HR manager should take into account is the concrete experience in project management, a skill that’s important in organizing and leading the whole process.

Relevant professional experience in the building industry – interior design, engineering, architecture, or facility management – is crucial to understand the process of building functions to take advantage of the environmental prospects from the start.

Experience

Preferably, the companies should look for a consultant who has been responsible for preparing and implementing a project from the beginning to the very end, rather than only contributing small parts. Contact the consultant’s previous clients to learn more about their role in each project.

Knowledge

To create the ideal green environment, you need someone with the know-how to create a SWOT analysis of your project. That means a detailed identification and assessment of the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats that accompany your project on its way toward realization.

Your company will definitely need someone who will listen to the entire team and stay focused on priority goals in the management of the project. Your consultant must have a solid, practical understanding of the background of your project, and consequently, the overall aims, which cannot be reached by only accomplishing the basic details of a technical manual for a green environment.

A professional consultant will recognise the synergy between the things that are surrounding the project. They will help your company implement policies that are part of the envisaged framework, but will also follow the associated cost implications.

Commitment

Every company should look for a consultant who displays the highest commitment and passion to the green building field, and is actively engaged in advancing sustainable green building practices. Even though it is a really tough task to find a devoted worker in general, this may present the key aspect of the personal and professional skills that a green consultant should possess.

Different Green Consultants Have Different Types of Expertise

When looking for the perfect consultant, you must be aware that you cannot find a brilliant combination of every possible aspect of the green consultancy. You must focus on one primary sphere of the green consultancy, such as sustainability strategy, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED ), greenhouse gas management, energy efficiency, or waste and recycling.

Why Having a Green Consultant is Important

Developing and implementing a complete environmental sustainability project may significantly reduce the maintenance and operational costs of your building. It will also ensure its practicality in a swiftly changing marketplace, boost productivity, and reduce your overall environmental footprint.

The right green consultant will make the whole process more effective and efficient, and will strive to create a sustainable building that operates neatly both now, and more importantly, in the distant future. By having the right green consultant with proper training and knowledge, “green” things will be resolved easier and faster in your company.

6 Tips to Run Your Business Smoothly

Alsco AU 6 Tips to Run Your Business Smoothly

Running a business is never going to be a smooth process. Problems and stress are things that would-be entrepreneurs should expect and be ready for.

In order to deal with it properly, we need to understand what stress is. It is a natural reaction of the body to different kinds of demand. It’s also known as the fight or flight reaction.

The fight and flight reaction was useful when humans were still facing physical dangers constantly, but today, it’s also causing problems. When the body reacts to emotional challenges in the same way that it used to react to physical demands, that can take a toll on the body.

Make your life easy and hassle-free, contact Alsco and enquire about our cost-efficient and fully-managed rental services.

The following ideas can come in handy when you want to run your venture as smoothly as possible.

Not only will these tips help in reducing the stress that you might encounter, they can also help in preventing other problems that might crop up while you are running your business.

Six Tips to Run Your Business Smoothly

One of the curious things about running a business is that it does not matter whether you are making money or not, you can still end up stressed either way.

It would help if you can follow these simple tips to run your business smoothly in order to avoid stress.

1. Have a Plan

This might sound like it’s conventional knowledge but you would be surprised at how many people ignore having a business plan. Lack of planning can waste a lot of time and resources.

On top of making things smoother and easier for you, having a plan also increases the chances that your business would succeed.

If you don’t know it yet, the lack of planning is one of the reasons why the majority of small businesses fail. So planning makes plain sense.

A business plan has several essential components to it:

  • The company’s mission and vision statement
  • A description of your product (service) and what makes it different
  • Market analysis
  • Breakdown and description of the management team
  • Marketing strategy
  • Strengths and weaknesses of your business
  • Create a cash flow statement
  • Projections of revenue
  • A summary that neatly wraps up the entire plan

These are the key components of your business plan.

2. Create a System

Whether you are in the manufacturing or in the service sector you must develop a system on how key processes are conducted. That system should be followed at all times by employees.

Why is having a system so important? It standardizes the way things are done and leaves little room for mistakes. In other words, it streamlines the way that your business is conducted.

If you are manufacturing a product, then you have to develop a system of making that product in the most efficient way possible and make sure that everyone follows it.

3. Learn How to Delegate

As your business expands the number of tasks and responsibilities that are needed in order to run it would increase. It could soon reach a point where you will not be able to handle all managerial tasks on your own.

You need to learn how to delegate some tasks. Make employees take on more responsibilities. By letting employees have more responsibilities that would also encourage them to become more loyal to your business.

4. Outsource What You Can

Outsourcing is the practice of letting outsiders complete certain aspects of a business. Outsourcing is becoming more and more common these days because of the numerous advantages that it can bring.

Outsourcing can save money because in many cases it is cheaper to let others do things for you than trying to accomplish them within your organisation.

It would also allow you to focus on the most important aspects of running your business.

Some of the aspects of your business that you can outsource include:

These processes are crucial to running your business properly, but outsourcing them would ensure that you’re getting high quality service and can free you to devote more time to the core aspects of your enterprise.

5. Use Technology to Your Advantage

You have to learn how to use technology to your advantage. There are plenty of modern tools that you can use in order to increase the productivity and competitiveness of your business.

Here are some of the most modern tools that you can use for your own business:

  • Planning software
  • Accounting software
  • Time Tracking software
  • Software for email management
  • Mobile internet access

All these tools can make communications and other aspects of your business smoother, faster, and easier.

6. Hire team players

All these ideas that we have listed would be useless and pointless if you do not have the right employees to help you. This means that right from the moment that you hire people you should be looking for certain qualities.

You should only hire team players who will work with you in bringing the company together. It should take some of the load off your back when you have people who would require little supervision.

Running a business would bring in a lot of emotional challenges for anyone. Even when you ready yourself for the amount of stress that you might encounter once you start running a business, it’s still likely that you are going to end up being stressed.

Fortunately, we have these 6 tips laid out to help you reduce stress when running a business. Plus with Alsco’s fully-managed services, you sure can run your business smoothly. Enquire now! Our friendly and informed staff are waiting to help!

Do You Make These Entrance Mistakes?

Do You Make These Entrance Mistakes?

Facilities and establishments are busy places. People come and go at all times and they pass through the entrance, making it one of the busiest spots in a building. Unfortunately, many businesses and offices do not pay too much attention to their entrances and so they make mistakes in connection with it.

Why the Entrance is Important

The entrance of an establishment is very important. It’s the first thing that people would see when they go to a store or a business. It has to be right in order to leave the perfect impression.

For employees, it is the first thing that they would see of their workplace. The entrance of a building can look and feel inspiring or it can give a gloomy feel to people passing through, that can affect how employees feel throughout the entire workday.

Another reason why the entrance is an important area in a facility is because it can be utilized in keeping a building clean. Using a proper floor mat in the entrance can dramatically reduce the amount of dirt and dust coming into a facility, which in turn reduces cleaning costs.

For a wide range of floor mat options, enquire at Alsco.

Don’t Make These Entrance Mistakes

Are you looking for ways that you can improve the cleanliness in your building? The first place to start is the most obvious one, the entrance. That’s where most of the “action” should take place. Action, meaning in this context to be cleaning.

Here are some of the more common mistakes made in connection with the entrance. After reading this list, see to it that you are not committing any of these wrong moves:

1. Not Cleaning Outside

A common entrance mistake made by many establishments is not keeping the immediate outside area clean enough. The pavement outside a building, the parking area, and other exterior areas are the places where people can pick up dirt and dust, which can end up inside, which in turn can drive up the cost of cleaning your place.

More than 90% of the dirt that ends up in indoor carpets comes from shoes and people pick those up from the exterior of a building. So it is absolutely crucial to keep the exteriors clean at all times.

2. Not Having the Right Entrance Mats

While keeping the exterior of an establishment clean is a must for any business, it would not take away all of the dirt and grime that is out there. Some dirt and dust can still be carried by the traffic, it’s impossible to keep the interior sterile after all.

The next step then is to have entrance mats that would protect your floor and control the dust and dirt due to high foot traffic. A good entrance mat should be at least 20 feet long, so it can capture dust from the soles of the people walking over it. The mat should have been specifically designed to trap moisture and dirt so it goes no further than the entrance.

3. Failing to Vacuum Daily

No matter how many precaution you take to prevent dust from entering your establishment, some can still get through. This is why there is a need for regular cleaning. The entrance of an establishment, especially the entrance mat, has to be vacuumed on a daily basis.

Unfortunately, this requirement is often forgotten and many establishments fail to vacuum, not just their entrances but their whole interior daily. This leads to the build-up of dirt and dust which makes it more difficult to clean.

You have to see to it that your entrance gets a daily dose of vacuuming. Focus on those areas that get a great deal of traffic.

4. Not Using Pile Lifting Vacuums

Even if you perform daily vacuuming it is not going to be enough. Experts suggest that for entrance mats and rugs that pile lifting vacuums should be used because regular vacuum cleaners are not adequate.

In order to remove the dry dirt that clings on to the fabric of a mat or a rug, a pile lifting vacuum would be the best to use. In pile lifting the yarns are opened up, lifted, and raised vertically which makes it easier for the dirt to be removed.

For an establishment that deals with heavy traffic, not using pile lifting vacuum would be a mistake. While the specialized vacuum cleaner that can perform pile lifting can cost more, it is far more cost-effective in the long run.

5. Trying to Clean Everything

One reason why some businesses fail to clean vacuum the entrances as often as they should is because they try to clean everything. They aim to clean the all of the floor areas of their building, which takes a great deal of effort. In a building with multiple floors, this would take a great deal of time and effort.

It is better to focus on the areas that get more traffic. The places that do not get as much traffic would not require the same amount of cleaning as the entrance. While wall to wall cleaning should be performed occasionally, it is better to concentrate on the entrance for the daily vacuuming.

Halls, where people pass through are areas that get a deal of traffic, but the place where most effort should be concentrated should be the entrance.

6. Over-Extending the Use of an Entrance Mat

There is a tendency to over-extend the use of an entrance mat. That means a mat is still used even after it’s no longer functioning properly because of age. An entrance mat can get worn out quickly and may not even last as long as its manufacturers suggest if it gets too much traffic.

Over-extending the life of an entrance mat can cost more in the long run than if the mat were to be replaced right away.

7. Not Maintaining the Cleaning Equipment Properly

The equipment used for cleaning should be maintained and cleaned properly at all times. Equipment, like a vacuum, that’s poorly maintained, is not going to be very efficient in cleaning. It means it would take more time and cost more to clean an area. Improperly maintained equipment would also have to be replaced sooner than well-maintained ones.

8. Not Vacuuming the Lift Floors

Though the lifts are technically no longer part of the entrance, cleaning them should belong to the same category. Not cleaning the lift floors can mean spreading dirt and dust to the upper floors. This is why they should be cleaned at least once every week.

It would also be a great idea to have the lift floors carpeted so that it can capture dust from the traffic using it. Dry cleaning the carpet there would mean that it would have a quick turnaround.

These are some of the more common entrance mistakes that are committed by establishments. You should be able to tell by now if you have been making one or two of these wrong moves in your own building.
