CARING FOR EMPLOYEES DURING COVID-19

The onset of Covid-19 has seen the implementation of various new safety protocols within organisations. These protocols are vital in the fight against the spread of the Coronavirus. With the use of in-house manufactured products, Teubes has been able to deliver excellent Covid-19 preventative measures to keep employees and their families safe. 

 

UNDERSTANDING THE RESPONSIBILITY OF SAFETY PROTOCOLS 

As an essential product supplier, the organisational leaders at Teubes understood the responsibility of keeping its operations open to service food and beverage, pharmaceutical, and cleaning product manufacturing industries. In order to do this, safety measures of the highest quality had to be administered and adhered to. 

Regulations and protocols implemented:

  • All advisory protocols were implemented, such as the regular use of hand sanitisers, regular hand washing, the wearing of masks, and taking the temperature of any person entering the business premises. 
  • Staff were protected through supplying each member of the team an immune booster called Aerocare (a product made with Teubes’ raw materials and produced and sold by Ashkan). Adding just one drop of this product to a bath, shower, or diffuser daily for inhalation offers immense immune system benefits. The Teubes staff receive one bottle of Aerocare monthly. 
  • Employees also each receive their own antiviral lemon hand wash and 70% ISO Propyl alcohol hand sanitiser infused with anti-viral essential oils. Hand sanitisers were also placed throughout the business premises. 
  • Anti-viral foggers are used on a weekly basis to sanitise the premises, and surfaces are frequently washed down with an antiviral-lemon spray. 
  • Employees are not allowed to take public transport. Instead, two minibuses are rented for collection and drop-off of all employees requiring transport. 
  • Other products that are freely available to employees are essential oils, such as tea-tree oil which has strong anti-viral, anti-sceptic, and anti-inflammatory properties. 
  • A variety of essential oils are added to Scatters’ (Teubes’ sister company) range of diffuser oils which are used throughout the offices. 
  • Teubes has placed emphasis on educating its staff regarding good health protocols such as healthy diet, vitamins, and immune booster products. 
  • Any employee who presents with any possible symptoms is immediately tested at the organisation’s cost, and these employees then stay home for the required two-week period. Thus far each person tested has been negative and there have been no Covid cases within the organisation.   

Keeping up with these protocols may be a costly business at times, but it does not come near the cost of human life and wellbeing that would be incurred should the regulations not be followed. 

Established in 1983, the Clive Teubes Group has been producing, distributing, and exporting superior quality products to both local and international markets for more than three decades. Based in Johannesburg, South Africa, its offerings include: Esters, Essential Oils, Natural Extracts, Citrus Oils, Flavours & Fragrances, Indigenous Oils, Exotic Oils, Special Extracts, and Aromatics.

An Industrial, Quality Clean the Natural Way – with Orange Terpenes

The Covid-19 pandemic has peaked the world’s interest in ensuring environments are clean and sanitary. Combining this with the environmentally conscious social context, the drive for natural cleaning products & solutions (and the resultant reduction of chemicals) is growing exponentially. As a result, cleaning industries are utilising natural ingredients that offer a superior clean. For this reason, many leaders within these industries have been using Orange Terpenes as their main cleaning product ingredient. 

What are Orange Terpenes? 

Orange Terpenes are produced from the orange peel. The peel is believed to hold the highest concentration of the benefits known to Citrus. As plant-derived hydrocarbons, Orange Terpenes are extracted through a process of pressing and distillation. Orange Terpenes that have been produced through the first distillation run are considered 95% pure and are used in industrial and large-scale cleaning products. Terpenes that have been distilled twice are of a higher purity quality and are often utilised in more refined cleaning products.  

The Cleaning Properties of Orange Terpenes 

  • Due to their high solvency, Orange Terpenes offer a more natural clean, while performing as well as their chemically based counterparts
  • Orange Terpenes deliver an industrial clean, effectively removing grease, resin, oils, and paints (for this level of cleaning, straight Orange Terpenes are best suited) 
  • With the proper application process, high purity Orange Terpene solutions are suitable – these are commonly used for cleaning electronic assemblies and high voltage electrical parts
  • When mixed with a water solution, Orange Terpenes are highly effective in cleaning carpets and other such materials
  • The pleasant, natural orange fragrance adds a refreshing, energising, and rejuvenating scent to cleaning products 
  • These scents are known to boost the mood and clear the mind; thus, when used in working environments, they are believed to increase productivity

Orange Terpenes offer a wide variety of uses and applications as a primary or additional ingredient in many types of cleaning products.
