Employees Showing Up To Work Sick

According to data from the staffing firm Accountemps, 90% of office workers still come to work while sick. While that work ethic should be admired, it should also be cause for concern – as it makes the spreading of these illnesses easier and faster. Outside of encouraging employees to stay home while sick, here are a few other things you can do to stop the spread of germs.

Keep Cleaning Products in Plain Sight

As the old saying goes: If it’s out of sight, it’s out of mind. The first step to helping employees stay healthy is by putting the products they can use in prime areas. Keep cleaners in restrooms and disinfectants near office desks. Make sure you let everyone know that these items are for everyone to use!

Be Mindful of What is Shared

Things that are shared are more likely to retain contact germs; so, a daily wipe-down office coffee machines and water filtration systems is essential to keeping your office healthy. Another easy way to cut down on contact germs is by supplying your breakroom with disposable plates, cups and utensils that are individually-packaged.

Use Products with Multiple Functions

Stock your janitorial supplies with items that have multiple purposes. A good cleaning brand doesn’t only clean, it removes harmful allergens that can compromise immune systems, stopping the sickness at its source.
