High Touch Point Areas
- On May 25, 2023
Disinfecting high touch point areas in offices is crucial to maintaining a healthy and safe working environment. High touch point areas refer to surfaces that are frequently touched by multiple people, such as door handles, light switches, elevator buttons, and shared equipment. These areas are highly likely to harbor harmful germs and bacteria that can spread illnesses, which can lead to decreased productivity and increased absenteeism in the workplace.
Regular disinfection of high touch point areas helps to reduce the spread of germs and bacteria, preventing employees from getting sick and potentially infecting others. Disinfection also helps decrease the risk of cross-contamination, which can occur when germs and bacteria are transferred from one surface to another through contact.
Strategically placing products such as disinfecting wipes next to high touch point areas can encourage employees to regularly disinfect these areas, overall decreasing the risk of spreading germs and bacteria.
By implementing regular disinfection protocols, employers can protect their employees from illness and infection, reduce absenteeism, and promote a positive and productive work environment.
