PLASTICS

A SERIOUS GLOBAL ISSUE THAT WE ALL NEED TO HELP TACKLE. RECYCLE AND REDUCE PLASTICS TODAY.

Blue bin overflowing with rubbish and plastic Terrible polution at waters edge with lots of bottles

Plastics – A serious issue that we all need to tackle Plastics have been around for a hundred years or so, and they have produced many benefits. However, we are now seeing they also bring many drawbacks. Prince Charles warned the world of the dangers of plastics some 40 years ago. It seems the world didn’t pay much attention to him. He was dismissed as being “out of touch” but he was spot on. Plastics are all around us today. We use them in our daily lives and routines, often without thinking about what happens to them and what effect they will have on the environment. The recent television programmes, such as BBC Blue Planet II have highlighted the damage and destruction plastics are causing around the world. We all have a responsibility to look after our planet and make it a better place to live for generations to come. It’s not just up to governments to clean up the oceans, we must act now too. Plastics can now be found in more than 60 percent of sea birds and are in nearly all turtle species. They mistake it for food and try to digest plastics.

According to Friends of the Earth, 12 MILLION TONNES OF PLASTIC ENDS UP IN THE SEA EACH YEAR with only 9% of all plastic having been recycled. 1 MILLION PLASTIC BOTTLES ARE BOUGHT WORLDWIDE EVERY DAY. Change can happen when we try. Since the 5p plastic bag charge was introduced, there has been 9 billion fewer plastic bags used in England. Even our clothes shred tiny bits of plastics called microfibres when we wash them. These microfibres often end up in the sea, into the fish and possibly into the food chain. We need to do all we can. Recycle wherever possible. Reduce the number of plastic bottles we purchase. Perhaps your office could provide water fountains, instead of water bottles? With Christmas approaching, Friends of the Earth provide great tips for a plastic free Christmas, and we thought we would share their information. For the office parties and Secret Santa this year, why not use the understated elegance of brown parcel paper to wrap those presents. Add natural decorations or homemade cookies, tying it all together with string of course. The advice for the office Christmas tree is if you have a plastic one, keep using it for as long as you can. Recycle it. If you opt for a real tree, make sure it’s one with the FSC logo. If your office workers send a lot of Christmas cards, then make sure they are recycled! Try purchasing cards printed on recycled materials of course. We all know how important coffee is to keep the office workforce going! Why not have reusable coffee cups or use china mugs and ditch the plastic single use ones. There’s lots more information and help on the Friends of the Earth website, or on the internet in general. If you would like more information on recycling and general office cleaning, please contact Hawkey Cleaning and Support Services.

NOROVIRUS

STAY CLEAN AND HEALTHY IN THE WORK ENVIRONMENT

Norovirus in the workplace and how to stay healthy

Often called stomach flu or gastroenteritis, Norovirus is an infection that causes gastroenteritis, which results in vomiting and diarrhoea. It is one of the most common bugs in the UK. As we have seen in recent news items, it has caused a few issues recently in the World Athletics Championships. So, how do we get the virus in the first place and what can we do to prevent this in our workplace? Consuming food or drink that is contaminated due to food handlers who have not washed their hands adequately. Eating without washing hands, which may have come into contact with Norovirus. Have contact with a person who is infected or showing symptoms. Drinking liquids contaminated by infected persons. This virus is very contagious and can spread rapidly throughout environments such as offices, care homes etc. Although it usually clears up by itself in a few days, it is a virus that we want to prevent in the first place. Obviously, there are some common-sense approaches and that is to do with regular cleaning and hygiene and regular office cleaning is a top priority. Personal hygiene, however, is uppermost in the fight against Norovirus and everyone should regularly wash their hands. It is essential for employers to provide adequate hand washing facilities and keep the washrooms well stocked of cleaning products and paper towels or functioning dryers. The NHS has more information on Norovirus here https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/Norovirus/Pages/Introduction.aspx See more posts about this and other information on our Google+ Page.

HAWKEY CUSTOMER FOCUS TRAINING - STAGE 3

LOOK, SMILE, TALK, LISTEN, THANK

Rule 3 of customer focus training

As part of Hawkey Cleaning & Support Services commitment to quality, our management team recently completed a customer focus training course with CBRE. The next in our series of Customer Focus Training is the Rule of Five. Five seemingly obvious words that can get neglected during the working day.

How often are you greeted by a receptionist focusing on their PC screen or phone? It might be that they are trying to solve a problem but the acid test is do you know this? Consider how this negatively impacts the customer experience, but by giving the customer 100% concentration and eye contact and a smile instead whilst they say their name and who they are here to see and then referring to the computer to check them in, is extremely powerful. It demonstrates confidence, respect, and professional conduct and makes the person feel important.

Too often whilst the other person is talking the voice in our head is talking at the same time which means we miss important parts of the conversation. Our internal voice may be working out how to help them, thinking of what to say next, getting ready to justify a point – whatever is going on inside the head means we are not truly listening to the customer.
