When a new school term starts, what are educators thinking about? There is no doubt that educators and teachers should be thinking about educating students – science, math, technology, English and physical education are all important parts of a student’s day. At Alsco, we are here to support the less glamorous bits of running a school or an educational workplace. We know we can’t solve all your problems but maybe one or two?

Use our 5-question quiz as a starting point to consider the needs of the larger teaching environment, including the bathrooms. Then let us worry about it so you don’t have to.

The Alsco Managed Rental Services Quiz

1.              Are there bathrooms at your school or education center?

Ok, ok, we already know the answer to this question. Every workplace needs bathrooms!  Our Fresh & Clean washroom services include everything from soap dispensers and odour control to washroom sanitisers and sanitary bins. Managed hygiene and washroom rental programs are available throughout Australia. Unsure? Contact us and we’ll get it sorted.

2.              Do staff spend long stretches of time standing?

Our anti-fatigue mats are a boon to educators who spend long days on their feet. A few strategically placed mats in classrooms and elsewhere can make a big difference in how teachers feel at the end of the workday. We also have specialised mats that help collect dirt, dust and liquids, helping keep classrooms, canteens and bathrooms safe. And if you want to send a message about safety, our mats can do that, too.

3.              Do you have the proper first aid tools at your workplace?

Educators know that the safety of the people in your care comes first. Alsco’s first aid kits for businesses offer peace of mind that the answer to this question is “yes.” We regularly check and maintain first aid kits, provide Automated External Defibrillators, lightweight and fully automatic defibrillator for adult or paediatric use, on a managed rental service and have eye wash stations for classrooms that may need them. Best of all, our electronic tracking system regularly checks for WH&S compliance, so you don’t have to.

4.              Do you offer practical courses, like those for the trades?

Many schools that offer education for the trades have uniform requirements. Since we got our start in uniforms and comfortable workwear, we know what works to keep tradies comfortable. As part of our managed rental service, we launder, steam and press uniforms, too.

5.              What service do you need the most that we haven’t asked about in this quiz? You already figured out that there are no wrong answers to this quiz  – but we hope our quiz helped you start down the path towards solving one or two of your back-to-school dilemmas.

Tell us what you need and how we can help.

Here’s to the new school year!
