Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, illnesses could threaten the attendance of your workplace. Depending on how proactive you were in the office, you may have taken preventative measures to keep your office germ free. If you didn’t have these measures in place, you probably implemented them after the pandemic started. When it comes to keeping workers safe, implementing basic sanitation methods can go a long way. At Extreme Microbial Technologies, our equipment helps to keep surfaces and the air in your office sanitized on a regular basis. The constant sanitation is another way of keeping workers safe during the day.
Regularly Clean Commonly Touched Surfaces
Think about areas in the office where many people gather. This could be the break room, by the coffee maker, the bathroom, or a food prep area. These typically serve as the germiest places in the office. If you do the bare minimum cleaning, make sure you sanitize these areas. Of course, it’s best to do a more in-depth cleaning since many people touch those surfaces. If no one in your office wants to clean, consider using EMT’s equipment. Our machines constantly run in the background and don’t cause any downtime for your office. They maintain surface and air purification, meaning you don’t have to think about it.
Encourage People to Work from Home if They’re Sick
If one person in your office comes to work when they feel under the weather, they could spread any number of diseases to others. Instead, encourage your employees to work from home if they feel under the weather. That way, they contain the spread of common illnesses to their home and minimize the risk of spreading it to others. However, should employees come to work without knowing they’re under the weather, our equipment is highly effective at killing harmful germs that makes others sick.
Increase Cleanings During Sickness Seasons
Everyone knows that colder weather means the cold and flu will begin to rise. Keep that in mind when it comes to cleaning the office. As the temperature drops, consider increasing the number of times you clean the office each week. However, if no one in your office sanitizes spaces regularly, you’ll want to look at other options. EMT’s equipment works in the background of your office to continually monitor microbial levels.
Use Proper Etiquette
Finally, coughing and sneezing happens. Encourage your employees to use proper etiquette when it comes to covering their mouths when they cough or sneeze. Always do it into the crook of your elbow or into a tissue. Remember to wash your hands after and throw away the tissue to minimize germ spreading through the air.
Keeping workers safe happens in a variety of different ways. By properly sanitizing your office, you help keep many different types of germs away while having healthier employees. At Extreme Microbial Technologies, we understand the need to keep the workplace germ free. That’s why our equipment works to prevent many different types of microbial growth.
