The Control of Germs Should be Part of all Businesses Health and Safety Programs
- On August 9, 2019
All businesses have or should have a Health and Safety Program, of those that do not all cover germs and bacteria in the work place. Your plan should include this as they can be as dangerous as stack of steel!
It is not hard to implement, as it is all about awareness. You can start with the basics – hand washing. Hand washing is the single most effective way to reduce the spread of germs and bacteria!
To get the job done it only takes at least 25-30 seconds of scrubbing with soap between your fingers with warm water followed by a thorough rinse. Give your hands 8-12 good shakes into the sink to remove excess as this will make drying easier.
