The 2019 novel coronavirus threat is still out there. The disease is highly infectious, and the greater danger is that anyone can be a carrier. Even when you don’t have symptoms of the coronavirus (COVID-19), you can still spread it. In the workplace, this threat is very real.
However, there are things that can be done to stop the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace. Basically, good hygiene practices are key to staying safe. Below are three essential things to do.
1. Wash Hands Often
As with any kind of disease-causing agent, whether viruses, bacteria, fungi, or others, handwashing is always the first line of defence. Our hands are constantly exposed to the air, different surfaces, and different people. Thus, our hands are potential vectors for transmitting the coronavirus easily. But if we keep our hands clean as often as possible, we effectively limit the spread of the virus through physical contact.
2. Precautionary clean, Touched Surfaces
Routine cleaning of frequently touched surfaces using appropriate detergent/disinfectant solutions or wipes is effective at minimising the risk of COVID-19 transmission. Particular attention should be paid to horizontal surfaces such as tables and frequently touched surfaces such as handrails, door handles, elevator buttons, computer keyboards and mice, telephones and/or any other highly touched items/fixtures you have in your workplace.
3. Avoid Touching Your Face
The coronavirus enters the body through spaces in our eyes, nose, and mouth. If we come from the outside and have touched different surfaces, and then we touch parts of our face, we run the risk of getting the virus into our bodies. Thus, it’s best not to touch our faces as much as possible, especially before we’ve washed our hands.
Should You Have Your Office Disinfected, Sanitized or even Decontaminated?
This is a legitimate concern of any business owner to ensure the safety of employees and clients. The quick answer to that is yes. But not everyone has the time or the equipment to carry it out themselves. That is why it is best to hire a professional in coronavirus cleaning for Perth business premises.
After Your Office is Disinfected, Sanitized or even Decontaminated, Kleen Slate Services apply a fragranced Disinfectant for a more pleasant working environment. We also issue you with our clearance certificate for those cleans where there has been a confirmed case of COVID-19 within the workplace. Your employees will then come back to a clean and fresh-smelling office.
