Keeping Your Work Environment Safe & Healthy

Keeping Your Work Environment Safe & Healthy
More Americans are beginning to go back to work, but the fear of Covid-19 still looms overhead. Employers and employees need to take extra precautions when heading back to their workspace to avoid contracting illnesses and remaining safe.

First, depending on your workspace setup, social distancing between employees should be implemented. Social distancing helps ensure that anyone who has been sick does not come into close contact with a co-worker.

Next, wearing masks when leaving desks should be required. Requiring masks in the workspace diminishes the risk of employees with viruses spreading their germs to others. If possible, employers should provide face coverings for their employees if they forget theirs or do not have one.

Ideally, employees will be able to wash their hands frequently, but if that is not an option, offer hand sanitizer throughout the office. Employers should encourage employees to sanitize after touching any high-contact areas such as doorknobs or water coolers.

It is also essential to disinfect workspaces before employees come back to work. Disinfectants such as Anti3 Protect Series Disinfecting Spray can easily be used in a fogger machine for effective and efficient elimination of 99.9% of viruses and bacteria. Additionally, Anti3 Disinfecting Wipes can be used to disinfect surfaces such as doorknobs, counters, phones, and keyboards. Workspaces must remain disinfected to keep employers and employees safe and virus-free.
