The importance of a healthy work environment

Going to work is a daily occurrence and you’re typically there for the majority of the day. As an employer, a healthy work environment is crucial to the success of your company because it can improve productivity and reduce costs. The spread of the flu can happen quickly, and typically results in missed work due to sick days. Businesses of all sizes can benefit from a clean and sanitized work environment.

Keep your workspace sanitized

Wipes are one of the quickest and easiest things to use when disinfecting office surfaces. Wipes can be used on keyboards, telephones and other shared work tools to disinfect the surface from germs. This is an easy task that you can do at the end of every day, which will help stop the spread of germs throughout the office. When choosing products for your workplace, keep in mind that most sanitizers and solutions aren’t effective against viruses. It’s important to check the labels to ensure the products you choose are safe and effective against common germs.

Wash your hands

According to the CDC, more than 80 percent of all infections are transmitted by hands. Just imagine all the surfaces you touch while at work that are covered with germs. Frequently washing your hands for at least 20 seconds under warm water, using antibacterial soap and drying your hands with a clean towel can help reduce the spread of the flu and other conditions.
