Pests can cause huge problems in the workplace. If you have a pest issue, it is your responsibility to have it resolved. It is important you put the right provisions in place to protect you, staff and customers.
Pests such as insects, rodents and birds can easily contaminate areas. They can contaminate food, equipment and work surfaces with droppings and hairs. Birds carry pathogens which spread disease.
Furthermore, pests can carry parasites which can be passed onto humans and cause illness.
Meets Legal Requirements
Under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, employers must carry out pest control to protect employees. Failure to take care of pest problems which poses health risks can lead to you receiving a fine.
In addition to this, the Food Safety Act 1990 demands that businesses that handle food take extra measures to prevent pests from contaminating food. Business owners should also hire professional pest control services so that any problems are dealt with in the highest professional manner.
Prevents Property Damage
While pests can be dangerous to people, they can also cause damage to your property. They can weaken structures and chew holes in walls and furniture. They can also pose a very serious flood and fire hazard as they chew wires and pipes.
Protect Your Reputation
Whether of not your business sells food, pests are a sign of poor hygiene and it shows customers you don’t care. A clean and pest free environment shows customers you care about your brand and its reputation.
Furthermore, being closed by environmental health due to pests can cost you a lot of money. Not only do you lose out on trade, but the clean up cost can be expensive as well.
