Hygiene

The workplace environment can greatly influence an employee’s satisfaction at work. Happy and content workers are productive and are always inspired to do their jobs well.

Employees are not the only ones that roam around the office. Possible clients, suppliers, and investors sometimes pay a visit, too. The last thing you want is for them to be turned off by a messy, unorganized, and dirty workplace.

An unhygienic workplace increases cases of employee absenteeism, costing the business a considerable amount of money. If you have substandard hygiene in the office, expect more and more employees taking sick days.

Making sure that your workplace adheres to basic standards of hygiene will help diminish the spread of disease-carrying bacteria and viruses that can be rampant in shared spaces like office kitchens and washrooms.

If your workplace is being cleaned on a regular basis, there are very slim chances of accidents happening and employees getting injured. Looking from another angle, this also means that a filthy office increases chances of accidents such as slips, trips, and falls.

Pest control companies are not necessarily experts in exterminating pests in your home and business. However, experience and training can make a big difference when choosing which pest control company to call. ECOPOISE has been taking care of pest problems for 10 years. Our technicians undergo rigorous training on pest biology and management to ensure that we only provide you with responsible treatments.

We do not rely majorly on chemicals, but we believe in solving pest infestations at their root causest Control now and you will receive a free survey. Our qualified entomologist and sales consultant shall inspect your premise Green Pest Management is an extension of our Integrated Pest Management Program. The basics of Integrated Pest Management is being followed only for one exception, the chemicals being used for the treatment part are ORGANIC PESTICIDES
Organic Pesticides are naturally occurring and are low-risk materials. Using these organic pesticides lowers the risk of health and safety issues. In lieu of some organic pesticides, Synthetic insect growth regulators are also being used. These IGRs are pest specific and have a very low mammalian toxicity. They may not be organic pesticides but they gave that they qualities of being target specific and have very low mammalian toxicity they are found appropriate for low impact structural pest management as they are incorporated with a definitive Pest Management. Aside from the use of organic pesticides, Green Pest Management shall also rely heavily on the usage of monitoring through physical control and trapping. This method allows us to apply the usage of the pest action threshold. The pest action threshold shall be set so as during monitoring if the pest action threshold is reached, appropriate actions will be implemented. The first week on each new site is the most dangerous and accidents are more frequent at the end of the day. To minimize accidents at the worksite, most construction companies conduct health and safety induction training to all employees and personnel entering the work sites.  A sticker placed on hard hats bearing the name or logo of the contractor is a symbol that an employee has completed the health and safety induction training.

Head Covering

The hair and skin on the neck and head must always be protected. This is important in situations where exposure from chemical sprays is possible. Chemical-resistant rain hats, wide-brimmed hats, and washable hard hats are good. Do not use cotton or felt hats as they absorb pesticides.
Goggles And Respirator

Wear shielded safety glasses or a full-face shield whenever the chemical could possibly contact your eyes. Safety glasses with brow and side shields are acceptable for low exposure situations. Always wear goggles or full-face respirator when you are pouring or mixing concentrates or working in a highly toxic spray or dust. In high exposure situations when both face and eye protection are needed, a face shield can be worn over goggles. Clean them after each use.

Respirators

Respirators protect the applicator from inhaling toxic chemicals. The label will tell you if a respirator is required. Consider wearing one during any lengthy exposure with a high risk of pesticide inhalation. Always wear a respirator while mixing or filling highly toxic pesticides. Applicators who will be constantly exposed to small amounts of moderately toxic pesticides for a day or several days should also wear a respirator.

Gloves

Always wear chemical-resistant gloves when handling all pesticides. Never use leather or cotton gloves as these types of gloves can be more hazardous than no protection at all because they absorb and hold the pesticide close to your skin for long periods of time.

Safety Shoes

Always wear safety shoes when working on the site or when handling or applying moderately or highly toxic pesticides. Wash the shoes after each use and dry thoroughly inside and out to remove all pesticide residue. Use them only for pesticide applications.

Body Covering And Safety Vest

Regular work attire of long pants and a long-sleeved shirt, shoes, and socks should always be worn when applying pesticides. Many applicators prefer work uniforms and cotton coveralls that fit the regular-work-attire description and provide equal protection. Applicators should reserve one set of clothing for pesticide use only. Launder and store separately from all other clothing.

Hazard Lights On Vehicle

All vehicles must be equipped with appropriate hazard and stop lights. These warning lights should be used at all times while working inside the project site.

Use Of Warning Signboards At The Work Site

Prior to the start of chemical application, warning signs should be in place at the worksite to notify all workers that the anti-termite treatment application is in progress.

Prevention advise – if a pest infestation is discovered, we will help to prevent the spread of pathogens. Pre-Construction or Soil Treatment involves building an anti-termite barrier underneath the building structure as a protection against damages caused by Subterranean Termites; this treatment is done before the building is constructed. With the use of hydraulic spray nozzles, the sites are treated a water-based termiticide before the laying of the concrete slabs on the ground.
The non-repellent termiticide kills the subterranean termites by contact and ingestion. Termites that come into contact with the termiticide experience the “slow kill” and in their return to the colony, and they transfer it to the rest. The treatment has limited effectiveness if carried out when the soil is saturated or excessively wet, or when it is likely to rain.
Ecopoise Soil Treatment
Our technicians are experienced and well-equipped to carry out soil treatments for your premises safely and systematically to ensure high effectiveness. Nonetheless, to give our customers greater assurance, we warrant the effectiveness of our treatment for five (5) years and undertake the responsibility to carry out re-treatment should there be a re-infestation of Subterranean Termites within the warranty period.

Residential Services

Residential Pest Control

Pests are never welcome in your home. They can be a serious health risk to your family and they can cause major damage to your home, internally and externally. Regular maintenance for your home against South Africa’s most common pests gives you and your family peace of mind.

Our services begin with an evaluation by a highly qualified inspector, who will gladly provide you a strategy to remedy your pest problems. Ecopoise offers a variety of service options, including, monthly, quarterly, one-time services. Our general pest control program covers ants,  roaches, centipedes, earwigs, silverfish,  spiders, mice, and many other common pests.

Our technicians are dedicated to their assigned territories and are in your neighborhood on a regular basis. Following your initial inspection, our technicians will continue to monitor your home and perform routine, preventative maintenance. The two most common species of rodents likely to infest our homes and garden in South Africa are the House Mouse (mus-domesticus) and the Brown Rat (rattus-norvegicus). Both of these can cause serious distress and damage as well as been the carriers of lethal bacteria.

We can never ever doubt the agility and perseverance of these rodents. In order to combat these rodents successfully we have to examine the reasons they are in a particular area, the access to this area and the availability of food and or water.

Ecopoise has fully trained technicians to help you in eradicating and preventing rodent infestation.

Most households at some stage will inevitably encounter an insect problem of some sort at some stage. The most common infestation in South Africa is likely to be the common garden ant (lasius niger) or the common wasp (vespula vulgaris).

These insects can sometimes become too much of a nuisance for us to share our dwelling with and Total Pest Control have methods of eradicating these insects with little or no disruption to the home.

We can also encounter the more serious insect pests such as the Cockroach (blattella germanica), that can literally take over your home or the nastier biting insects such as Bed Bugs (cimex lectularius) and Fleas (ctenocephalides felis).

An infestation of these insects requires expert treatment to completely eradicate and Ecopoise has various techniques both physical and chemical to do just that.

Crawling Insects, Flying Insects, Ants, Flies. This practice entails applying the right product at the right time to control target weeds. This is often called IPM – integrated pest management.

Weed control – combined with regular fertilization, proper mowing, and correct watering practices – will keep the grass thriving while the weeds disappear.

Weed control programs may involve both preemergent and postemergent applications to prevent spring weed emergence and in the summer to control pervasive weeds.

Contact treatments are made at peak germination periods of broadleaf weeds. The control product must contact the leaf surface of the plant to be effective.

Weed control products used by Ecopoise are tested and approved and are applied by licensed, trained professionals.

Ecopoise’s equipment is calibrated to apply the proper amount of product to eliminate weeds. To improve performance, keep children and pets off the lawn until it is dry.
