Educational Talk Program

Create Pest Awareness among Employees in Your Organization

Creating pest awareness among employees is important to all businesses and ever so in the food related and industrial and manufacturing sectors. Basic pest knowledge enables employee to identify potential breeding grounds in the premises in order for proactive actions to be taken before the infestation becomes uncontrollable.

The negative impact of pest infestation in commercial sectors:

  • Employees’ health risk - Pests carry a legion of infectious diseases such as Dengue, Salmonellosis, Leptospirosis and Gastroenteritis.

  • Loss of business profits and reputation - Pests such as cockroaches and rats can contaminate your stocks in your inventory with their droppings and urine. This can lead to serious consequences such as product recalls which will eventually cause severe damage to your business profits and reputation if no actions were taken.

  • Legal actions - Pest infestation can expose your business to potential regulatory actions such as fines and business closures as well as lawsuits from affected customers.

  • Damage to building structures - Rats and termites can cause physical damage to your building structures, which can be costly to repair.

Besides pest awareness, Rentokil’s Education Talk also covers sanitation and personal hygiene topics; essential in keeping the working environment hygienic. Sanitation also helps to create a more organised, efficient and safer workplace.

Benefits to the Business/ Employees:

  • Employee motivation – Providing hygiene and pest knowledge will help employees to understand the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle and workplace for their wellbeing.
  • Cost reduction – Proactive measures help to reduce the cost to repair damages and product recalls.
