‘Tis the season for sniffles and sneezes. The last thing you want is to come down with a winter cold. Here are 6 ways to prevent getting sick at work!
6 Ways to Prevent Getting Sick at Work
1. Wash Your Hands
Wash your hands, wash your hands, wash your hands! When using soap, wash with warm water for 20 seconds (about the time it takes you to sing “Happy Birthday” twice). If you can’t get to the sink right now, a good alternative to doing nothing is to use some hand sanitizer. One of the best ways to stay healthy is to keep those hands clean!
2. Clean Surfaces
Just in case your co-workers aren’t following the “wash your hands” rule, it’s a good idea to also clean much used surfaces. Door knobs, table tops, counters, and telephones could all use a disinfecting wipe down on a regular basis.
3. Stock Tissues
Keep tissues in high traffic areas to help stifle the sneezes. You might even want to place a bottle of hand sanitizer close by. It will remind those snifflers to sanitize before they touch anything else!
4. Take Vitamin C
One way to battle the germs is to keep your immune system up. Try regularly taking vitamin C as an extra oomph of immune defense.
5. Go Antimicrobial
You can also invest in antimicrobial products. Binders, pens, scissors, keyboards…everything you touch on a daily basis can help keep the germs away.
6. Stay Home
If all else fails and you end up sick, please stay home! Save the rest of your co-workers from your germs by keeping them at home.
