How can I protect myself & my employees from the Coronavirus?
There are currently no vaccines to prevent coronavirus disease in 2019 (COVID-19). Using everyday prevention actions in your office can help prevent the spread of the disease.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
Stay home when you are sick
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
Cover your cough and sneeze with a tissue, discarding the tissue immediately in the trash
It goes without saying, but when possible, avoid close contact with people who are sick}
Wash your hands with soap and water frequently for at least 20 seconds. Cleaning your hands should be done after going to the restroom, before eating, after blowing your nose, sneezing or coughing
High-Risk areas for Bacteria Accumulation in the Office
Offices are full of germs, and some of them may lurk in places that you might not expect.
When was the last time you cleaned your Smartphone? With all of that touching, your phone is a breeding ground for bacteria. Many phones can be kept clean by wiping them down with rubbing alcohol; however, check the manufacturer’s instructions before doing so.
Restrooms pretty much go without saying. According to a study by Life’s Little Mysteries, “Within an hour of normal use, there were 500,000 bacterial cells per square inch on the bathroom surfaces, on average.”
Kitchens and break rooms are also places for high-risk infectious germs. Think about it; surfaces such as refrigerator handles, microwaves, and cabinet doors can serve as homes for bacteria.
A seemingly clean workplace can still be a harbinger of hidden dust, dirt, and germs. An unsanitary workplace affects your employees and customers.
Positive effects from a Clean Office:
Removing dust, dirt, and germs means your employees will get sick less often, and individuals with allergies will have to contend with fewer allergens
An immaculate office appearance creates an image of professionalism and attention to detail, suggesting to customers that your business offers real value and doesn’t cut corners
A clean, fresh environment will boost your employee’s mood which will lead to higher productivity
