Guidelines for a Healthy Workplace

Being that the coronavirus is primarily transmitted between people and through touching infected surfaces, it’s imperative that we properly disinfect our work-space. Taking this necessary precaution will help us remain healthy by reducing the risk of catching or spreading the coronavirus at our workplace. See below for a few tips on how to properly disinfect work stations and remain safe during this worldwide pandemic, as described by The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA).

1.

Thoroughly wipe down your work station.

Before the start of each shift be sure to disinfect your desk, keyboard, mouse, and phone as these are the things that you touch the most.

2.

Frequently wash your hands for at least 2o seconds.

Consistently wash your hands after you eat, touch door handles, use the restroom, or blow your nose for a minimum of 20 seconds.

3.

Use hand sanitizer when soap isn’t available.

When you don’t have soap available, hand sanitizers are the best substitution so be sure to keep one with you at all times if possible.

4.

Skip on the handshakes when greeting.

Since the coronavirus is transmitted primarily between people, it is recommended to avoid unnecessary physical contact when possible.

5.

Clean the front and back of your smart phone.

Use a damp, soapy microfiber cloth to clean the front and back of your phone being that it’s one of the things that you touch most.

Let’s play it safe in our workplace!
