Poor hygiene can quickly cost a lot of money

How you can save money with the right hygiene concept in your company.

Why it is essential to maintain good hygiene in the workplace

Poor hygiene at your company premises can lead to high unplanned costs. If hygiene requirements are neglected, viruses, fungi and bacteria will inevitably spread quickly and easily around the site.

The result:

Your employees become ill and are unable to perform their tasks. On average, the costs associated with employee absence amount to between CHF 600 and CHF 1000 per day (source: Swiss Federal Coordination Commission for Occupational Safety [FCOS]). Most companies have to factor in losing around 10% of workdays per year to illness (source: SUVA). More than half of these absence days could be prevented by introducing a better hygiene concept

Making more of an effort in terms of hygiene pays for itself within the first year.
