Life as we know it has changed.

You’re probably working from home.

But your property remains.

It’s sitting there waiting for you, your team, and all your customers to return.

And while it seems empty, it’s not.

Uninvited microscopic visitors are making themselves at home.

They’re sitting, waiting, and anticipating the very people you’re charged with protecting – ready to make them sick.

Your responsibility continues.

But like we said, it has changed.

Your focus of responsibility is different today than it was two weeks ago.

Protecting everyone means keeping your property clean.

Let’s be straight.

Uncleanliness now might cost untold litigation expenses.


Proactive operations know this.

You need to be obsessed with cleanliness and risk.

This relationship matters more than ever.


Cleanliness, cleanliness, and…uncleanliness.

It’s all we’ve been thinking about lately.

Well, now it’s time to focus on the effect.

That’s Risk, risk, and risk.

The action of whether you keep your property up to snuff – and can prove it with accurate documentation – or not will lead the associated outcome.

Which side of this do you want to be on then?

It’s essential to focus on this while you’re not inundated with other projects and tasks.

Keeping your property clean right now means reducing your risk for when people return.

Use your software solution to support this initiative.

We recently published two posts you should check out:

  1. How to Combat Property Uncleanliness – Now
  2. Use Your CMMS to Augment This Sanitation Best Practice

These will help, and we’ve got more coming.

We must support you through this time.

But we can’t rest on our laurels.

There is still work that needs to be done.

And this work could save lives and your organization’s bottom line.


We get it.

Getting things done, especially at scale, is often easier said than done.

It requires buy-in from stakeholders, accountability, and discipline.

We’ve provided helpful ideas (and there’s more where that can from) above to position your team to support property cleanliness and, most importantly, risk reduction.

But you need more.

You need to program your operation to manage everything in this new environment – for as long as it lasts.

You need a disciplined framework for streamlining processes, resources, personnel, information, and communication.

You need to employ Proactive Operations.
