What Can You Do to Protect Your Staff?

Employers always appreciate a strong work ethic, but sick employees should stay home so their condition doesn't escalate. And to protect the rest of your employees.

One way to prevent illnesses from spreading in the office is by encouraging workers to wash their hands regularly with water and soap for at least 20 seconds. Adding sanitiser to their hygiene regime is also an excellent idea.

Another way to keep germs from spreading is to clean frequently touched surfaces like door nobs, countertops and workstations with cleaning agents or disposable wipes.
