In today’s workplace, office employees touch many surfaces in the office every day, making it essential to practice proper hand hygiene in the office. Office staff should wash their hands frequently and properly throughout the day, but especially:
- After nose-blowing, coughing or sneezing
- Before and after preparing food and eating
- After using the toilet or touching trash
- Ensure that you provide your employees with a clean, well-stocked handwashing facility and hand sanitizer.
You can promote proper hand hygiene in your office in several ways, including posting signs near the sinks, restrooms and other high-traffic areas in the facility.
