What ways can employers protect their employees during COVID

As we eagerly watch the news for the latest updates about the coronavirus pandemic to hear when we all might be able to get back to some form of normal, there are things that you can do to reduce the spread of coronavirus, flu, and other diseases. Here are some ways employers can protect their employees during the coronavirus disease pandemic:

Disinfection Services

Protect your people and your building on a regular basis with Woodard’s pathogen control system, Disinfection Services! When you regularly have Woodard disinfect your building with Disinfection Services you can be assured that any lingering pathogens, germs, or bacteria that were present have been killed. Our EPA-approved solution has shown to be effective against emerging viral pathogens similar to SARS-CoV-2, the novel coronavirus that causes the disease COVID-19.

Promote Handwashing

It’s one of the easiest things you and your staff can do to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in your facility, school, or business.

If you need a little extra help washing your hands, just ask Google or Alexa to “help me wash my hands” and they will provide you with a fun little song to make sure you properly wash your hands each and every time!

Provide Proper Cleaning Supplies

To ensure you are reducing the spread of COVID-19 in your workplace, make sure that you supply those in the building with the proper cleaning supplies to keep their area and common areas around them clean. One effective way to reduce the spread of germs is to set up a station when folks walk in. If you’re in St. Louis County, masks are required in all buildings. This is a great place to set a box of masks for individuals to take and a jar of hand sanitizer to disinfect your ha.

Another tip that is also beneficial in reducing the spread of COVID-19, is to place hand sanitizer throughout the building where staff will be. This will reduce the number of germs that end up on common touchpoints. Employees should also be reminded to frequently wash their hands with soap and water when available or disinfect with hand sanitizer.

Face Coverings

While it’s not always comfortable, face coverings and masks significantly help in reducing the spread of COVID-19. Wearing a mask protects both you and those around you! For more information on wearing masks, visit the CDC.

By following these tips to reduce the spread of COVID-19 you will also reduce the spread of common colds and the flu. Don’t forget, we are entering cold/flu season!
