The recommendations call for sanitizing commonly touched surfaces, areas and shared equipment at least twice per day. For manufacturing facilities, this is a dramatic increase, and due to the sheer amount of cleaning required, it will be difficult to implement and maintain.
Prior to the pandemic, manufacturing facilities were already experiencing difficulties in maintaining regular and consistent cleaning — challenges that will now be exacerbated. Such problems include:
The good news is that there are innovative solutions to help offset the increased workplace sanitation requirements — one solution that can easily be added to the front-line janitorial team is Neo, the autonomous floor scrubbing robot.
