Do Your Part to Prevent Disease and Flu This Cold Weather Season

As summer comes to an end and fall/winter quickly approach, it’s time to take the health and safety of your workplace more seriously. After all, failing to do so can easily cost your business a significant amount of money due to employee absence or reduced productivity. Cleaning to prevent disease in the workplace starts with basic precautions.

Studies from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) report that “up to 80 percent of flu cases are spread by touching contaminated surfaces and by direct human contact.” As such, it’s important to keep your workplace clean through a number of regular efforts to:

  • Disinfect common breeding grounds for germs (including telephones, elevator buttons, computer keyboards, and bathroom faucets/handles).
  • Provide employees with disinfectants and disposable tissues to prevent the spread of germs.
  • Deep clean surfaces that retain germs and bacteria (such as carpets) on a regular, frequent basis.
