How much time do we all spend at work, shaking our hands with friends or colleagues, using shared bathrooms or eating together? The answer is enough! Enough time to be exposed to the environment, where Coronavirus can be beaten if your employer will act right.
We are at Soapy gathered simple rules/actions that you can advise your employer to implement, so that your workplace will be safe and healthy.
Everyone is washing their hands properly for at least 20 seconds.
The employer needs to assure that the workplace is sparkly clean. Bathrooms, toilets, and kitchens should get additional attention. These places should have appropriate posters that explain all aspects of proper hand-washing procedures. See the poster below:
Post in Hebrew and Russian can be found here.
Everyone should practice correct coughing and sneezing etiquette (cover your mouth and nose entirely with a tissue or your upper sleeve).
The employer needs to provide disposable wipes so that commonly used surfaces (for example, doorknobs, keyboards, remote controls, desks) can be wiped down by employees before each use.
Sick employees shouldn’t return to work until their temperature has stayed below 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit (37.8 degrees Celsius) for at least 24 hours, without the help of fever-reducing or other symptom-altering medicine, the CDC said.
The employer needs to give an opportunity to work from home for people who already ill or just came from countries that were listed as high-risk.
If you are an employer, you can maintain the right hygiene routine of your emloyees just by adding an ECO – smart hygiene station that ensures everyone washes their hands properly. Order it here.
