With COVID-19 causing unfortunate side effects on our economy, now is the time to change our habits and place the safety of our loved ones and employees at the top of our to-do list.
Where do people migrate to every morning? Their workplace! With that being said, we feel as if it’s crucial for businesses to ensure you’re keeping your facility as clean as possible. We’ve compiled some tips on how to do so.
Cleaning electronics can be a little tricky for some people since you must be careful to avoid damaging company technology. Electronics you may need to sanitize in your business may include tablets, touch screens, remote controls, mouses, keyboards, phones, and intercom systems. Here’s how to go about doing that.
When cleaning electronics, you should clean them based on the manufacturer’s handbook. If this isn’t available to you, feel free to clean all electronics utilizing alcohol wipes, not soap and water, and dry thoroughly after finishing.
Had an Employee Who Was Infected?
When finding out one of your employees was infected with the virus, there are certain steps you should take to ensure your employees are as safe as can be.
- Backtrack and be sure to close off all areas where he/she may have been.
- The next step is to get as much air circulation in the area as possible for at least a few hours. 24 hours of air circulation is recommended by the CDC.
- Clean everything that the employee may have been in contact with soap and water or alcohol solutions that contain at least 70% alcohol.
While these steps may be common sense for some, we would just like to reiterate that following these steps is in the best interest of your company. Keeping employees safe when coming into work should be your biggest priority to ensure we help stop the spread of not only COVID-19 but many other illnesses that can be avoided by cleaning.
We recommend making this a weekly or monthly habit at your place of work!
