Here are a few tips for your office employees to prevent the spread of germs.
Sharing is not always caring. Provide each employee with their own staplers, pens and paper items so they are not sharing things between them which can encourage sharing germs before they even know they are infected.
Frequent Hand washing. Hang reminders in bathrooms and make a companywide policy of frequent hand washing. Also, clean door handles frequently or consider installing doors that push out from the inside in bathrooms and break areas. This can help stop the spread of germs when colleagues and customers shake hands.
Keep the break rooms and common areas clean. Regular cleaning of the kitchen, break or common rooms can help reduce the likelihood of germs being spread from one person to another. Make sure employees are not sharing mugs or cups. Keep microwaves and refrigerators clean and discard old food often.
