With the holidays just around the corner, gatherings and parties will be at an all-time high. Families will travel to share in the festivities, friends will meet for dinner, and parties will be held. Although a fun and exciting time of year, the holidays can be overwhelming and stressful, leading to compromised immune systems and more sickness. With travel in the mix, people are even more susceptible to illness. Here are some helpful tips for keeping your employees and patrons healthy during the holiday season.
Invest in extra products.
With additional people coming and going, you may need to add more tissues, soap, and antibacterial products to your traditional order. Enviro-Master’s certified Health and Safety Technicians are trained to manage your inventory through the Paper Product and Dispenser Program. Weekly servicing will ensure your paper and soap dispensers are in proper working condition and refilled as needed.
Encourage employees to stay home if they are sick.
A few sniffles may not be a sign of the flu, but a fever and body aches should be a red flag when it comes to illness. Encourage employees to work from home or take time off if they are contagious.
Maintain a clean work space and restroom.
If your business is particularly busy during holiday travel, make sure to keep your surfaces professionally sanitized and disinfected. Enviro-Master’s Electrostatic Spraying Technology adheres to hard surfaces and can be applied both inside and outside of restrooms, ensuring that all contact areas are addressed. The fine mist is 99.999% effective at killing bacteria and viruses.
Keep physical contact to a minimum, when possible.
Although shaking hands is a common courtesy in business, it’s a quick way to spread germs. Encourage frequent hand washing for employees and those traveling to your business during the holiday season. Display signs in the restroom and other appropriate places as a reminder.
