PHILADELPHIA, PA - September 15, 2020 -
Tork, an Essity brand, is offering the tools and information businesses need to help secure the new hygiene standard. The new website, with the message “Secure the new hygiene standard,” is a one-stop resource hub businesses can use as they develop a reopening plan and update hygiene procedures. Resources include a free, downloadable Back to Business Toolkit to help businesses operate under a new normal and help people feel safe. With extensive global experience in professional hygiene, Tork is supporting businesses with the knowledge and expertise needed to meet – and exceed – increased hygiene expectations. With 81% of global survey respondents in a recent survey saying they expect public restrooms will provide a safer hygiene environment now than before the COVID-19 crisis, hygiene procedures have never been more important.
“This period has been challenging for businesses – those businesses who remained open, as well as businesses that operated in diminished capacity, waiting for safer times. Hygiene standards and customers’ hygiene expectations have increased, and hygiene practices will be scrutinized more than ever before as businesses begin to reopen their doors and welcome back employees and customers,” said Don Lewis, President of Professional Hygiene at Essity. “Tork is offering guidance and insights based on decades of experience and the latest recommendations from global public health organizations to help keep facilities hygienic and support our customers as they navigate a challenging, new environment and secure the new hygiene standard.”
New resources for businesses include:
• A free, customizable Back to Business Toolkit loaded with signage and checklists that can be used as a part of a reopening plan;
• A white paper, infographics and educational videos that detail how hygienic solutions, such as paper towel, skincare, tissue, and napkin systems help contribute to a cleaner and safer facility; and
• Tork product recommendations to help businesses secure the new hygiene standard.
Visitors to the site can also continue to access the Safe at Work toolkits that were created earlier this year, which contain valuable tips, guides, and product information for a variety of businesses, including Offices, Higher Education, Manufacturing, Healthcare, Restaurants, and others.
