Managing Coronavirus/Covid-19 in the Workplace 

Over 80% of infections are spread by touch from the contaminated surfaces we come into contact with everyday. Covid-19 will be transmitted in a very similar way though the workplace. Managing any possible risk and exposure to Covid-19 is a top-priority for most businesses. The cost of an outbreak is huge, both in terms of employee health and well-being and financial pressure, which will be significant. Simple personal protective measures you can implement now to reduce risk include, improved personal hygiene (coughing or sneezing into tissues), better handwashing compliance and social distancing. In addition ensuring your workspace is healthy and hygienic, that shared surfaces and touch points are sanitised will give you the best chance of avoiding an outbreak and will provide your team confidence their health and welll-being is your top pirority.

Keeping the workplace healthy

  • Make sure your workplace is healthy and hygienic. We can't see germs and we all know that things that look clean can harbour all sorts of infection casuing bacteria and viruses. A scientific ATP analysis will tell you if your workplace is health-safe and if your team are practicing good personal hygiene. 
  • Ensure an appropriate sanitising product is used to clean and sanitise all sufaces and that cross-contamination is minimised with the use of different colour coded cleaning cloths for each area and surface.
  • Common contact points and"hot zones" such as door handles, lift control panels, fridge door handles, microwave control panels and light switches need to be sanitised effectively and regularly.
  • Provide individual hand sanitisers for each desk, meeting room and common space such as cafeteria's and reception. 
  • Supply facial tissues for each desk, meeting room and common space.
  • Have surface sanitisers or antibacterial wipes available so team members can sanitise their own workspace including desktops, telephones, keyboards and mouse etc. 
  • Circulate "Help Keep Everyone Healthy" emails on a weekly basis (establish automatic sending) to reinforce and remind the team of the importance of practicing good personal hygiene and to sanitise their workspace. 
  • Encourage people to have flu vaccinations this season. Even though this will not protect against the Covid-19, it will certainly help reduce the amount of influenza this season, which maybe significantly exacerbated by a combination of the two in our communities. 

Keeping Yourself Healthy in the Workplace

  • Washing your hands effectively is your best protection from contracting an infection. Soap must be used and hands should be lathered for at least 20 seconds. 
  • You should aim to wash your hands 8+ times per day; when arriving at work, before and after breaks, before and after eating or drinking, after touching or handling communal items/office equipment, after using the washroom, after coughing or sneezing, when leaving work, when arriving home etc. The more you wash and sanitise your hands the less likely you are to contract an infection. 
  • Use hand sanitisers regularly in conjunction with hand washing. Hand sanitisers offer a fast and convenient method of sanitisation and mitigate any poor hand washing.
  • Cough or sneeze into a tissue, paper towel or toilet tissue or if not available into the crook of your elbow.
  • Avoid coughing or sneezing into your hands, this is high risk for spreading infection.
  • Wash your hands after coughing or sneezing regardless of having used a tissue or paper towel.
  • Stay at home if you're exhibiting signs of a cold or the flu.
