This year’s flu season has caused concern for many — Health officials have stated that this year’s flu season began much earlier than expected, and that it has become more widespread than any other flu season over the last 13 years. As the season hasn’t hit its peak yet, officials are expecting that much more people will be impacted by the flu virus.
Several more weeks of intense flu activity in Greenville, and across the States, is still expected, which means that employers should, if they haven’t already, put measures in place to protect their staff and reduce the risk of the spread of the virus in the workplace. For some business, it only takes one sick employee to impact productivity and quality. Multiply that, and add in several other employees sick at the same time, and the business (depending on the size) could potentially come to a halt for a brief period.
Regardless of the size of your business, implementing measures in the office to reduce the chances of exposure in the workplace could be beneficial. A major preventative measure is to ensure that the workplace is clean and sanitized, and while employers can encourage their staff to regularly disinfect their work spaces and common areas, there is no guarantee that they will remember. Hiring a janitorial service can give employers the assurance, and the peace of mind, with knowing that the office space has been properly cleaned and sanitized.
At all times of the year, but especially during the flu season, areas such as employee work spaces, and surface areas should be regularly disinfected. Additional areas such as community work surfaces and equipment, which include door knobs, lunch areas and appliances, printers, copiers, and other office machinery that many people come into contact with multiple times during the day, should be regularly sanitized.
