Sanitizers and Soap The proper tools make it easier for your staff to maintain sanitary work practices at the office. Consult with your cleaning crew to make sure all restrooms and public sinks are properly stocked with soap, for example. Further, consider switching to hands-free toilet flushers and faucets to cut down on the spread of germs in restroom facilities. You may also want to provide hand sanitizer kiosks or individual dispensers for employee desks and work areas. Opt for sanitizers that contain 60 to 95 percent alcohol to ensure that they provide the maximum germ-killing capabilities. Courtesy Masks Many cold and flu viruses are spread in the air when someone coughs or sneezes, so wearing a face mask provides a method for cutting down on the spread of illness in the office. You can help by not only providing masks to those employees that are battling minor colds and illnesses, but also to any clients or visitors to the office that request them. Work to foster an office culture that accepts mask-wearing as normal.
