‘Tis the season—and by “the season,” we mean cold and flu season. Nothing is worse than your entire team catching the flu because your office has been overrun with germs. Fortunately, you can prevent situations like that by prioritizing office sanitation, especially during flu season. Keep reading for our office sanitation tips to beat flu season!
Disinfect to Prevent the Sneeze “Domino Effect”
The domino effect caused by sneezes throughout the office is a real struggle during cold and flu season. Disinfecting common or public areas in your office on a regular basis is a good way to prevent the spread of illnesses. Restrooms, break rooms, waiting rooms, and lobbies are hot spots for germs, so focus your disinfection efforts there.
Promote Good Hygiene
Promoting good hygiene and wellness practices can help prevent future issues from snowballing. Good hygiene practices in the office should include washing hands often & properly, covering coughs and sneezes, avoiding contact with those who are sick, and more. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth and limit shared equipment. Encouraging employees to get vaccinated and to stay home when sick is an effective way to prevent the flu from taking control of your office.
Encourage Sick Days
Although it may seem counterproductive to business functions, encouraging employees to take sick days when needed is essential. Many employees will go to work despite being sick which results in less productivity and lower-quality work, causing resentment towards their job. Forcing sick employees to work will simply deter customers and cause illness to spread throughout the office. Employees’ well being is a priority in successful businesses!
