Even though flu season is coming to a close, it’s still highly important for any business, organization, medical practice, etc. to design their office or facility in way that’s primed to combat sickness – not promote it.
The workplace is an ideal location for germs to transfer from one person to another as employees, clients and patients bring germs from home with them into the office. It’s important to take precautions to reduce sick days and increase overall morale.
The most simple, but tried-and-true way to fight sickness is by washing your hands, so make sure you’re encouraging employees to wash their hands consistently during the work day.
