Clean and hygienic workplaces are essential during flu season. In many cases, a facility or workplace can appear clean, but upon further inspection many come to learn that bacteria is present and ready to infect those who share a common workspace.

A few things to consider when it comes to flu season:

Reducing the spread of workplace illness has a real bottom line impact on productivity, and limits the number of sick days employees need to take. Regular cleaning is important, especially for contact surfaces, which are areas most touched or handled by many people throughout the work day.

Examples include: stair railings, door handles, light switches, elevator buttons, phones, and virtually any item or surface in the bathroom. These hot spots are prime mingling locations for bacteria and germs, and it is essential that they are cleaned thoroughly and regularly to stop the spread of infection and illness.

Promote a healthy environment with hand washing:

Promote hand washing within the workplace, throughout the day. Good hygienic habits contribute to cleanliness, and hand washing is an essential habit to stop the spread of germs. Regular hand washing – especially after a cough or sneeze, can significantly cut back on the spread of germs. It’s a simple but essential practice to stay healthy and productive. Employers may also consider hand sanitizer dispensers for when employees, patients or students are unable to get to a sink to wash up with soap and water. Also make sure the restrooms in your building are stocked with the necessary sanitary products (such as soap, hand sanitizer, hand towels, etc.). This will ensure people can properly wash their hands at all times.

What to consider when hiring a professional:

When something is worth doing, it’s worth doing right, so it’s vital to hire a professional and reputable cleaning company that is trained to understand and follow procedures to maintain a healthy work environment. Talk to you cleaner about their technique, training and equipment to ensure they can provide the cleanest environment possible.
