A clean time clock is essential in a time of pandemic

A clean or contactless time clock ensures employee safety

Whether you’re an essential business that’s had to continue operations during the COVID-19 crisis or preparing to welcome employees back into the workplace, having a plan for high-touch surfaces is crucial for employee safety. We’ve all learned to take extra care disinfecting door handles and countertops in high-traffic areas, but what about how to clean the company time clock?

Time clocks can be a significant business investment, and their proper cleaning and care ensures employee safety and clocks’ longevity. As a general guideline for cleaning time clocks, use a soft, lint-free cloth and apply manufacturer-recommended cleaning solutions to the cloth, instead of directly to the time clock or scanners.

The correct cleaning method depends on your time clock and we recommend consulting the manufacturer for specific guidance.
