It’s that time of year again, the time when you start hearing coughing and sneezing throughout your workplace. On average 1 in 3 Canadian adults have a sore throat, cold or flu in any given month.
HANDS are the main transmitter of germs. We use our hands to carry out most tasks during the day. Because we do it so automatically, we almost forget what an important tool they are. We use our hands to greet people, to type, to write, to eat, to open doors, to work, to drive...and now imagine how many GERMS you have passed on in one hour, let alone a full day...
HELP reduce the spread of germs by washing your hands regularly or sanitising if water isn’t available. Clean hands will not only help you STAY HEALTHY but also others around you. You wouldn’t want to catch a cold or any other infections that make you ill for days so it is important that you take the firstvstep towards preventing the spread of germs.
Trying to not catch a cold is tough when you're surrounded by germy colleagues and work spaces. Although it's impossible to stay away from germs altogether, as part of our Preventing Cold & Flu with Clean and Healthy Workplaces campaign we have tools and resources to help to promote effective hand hygiene to your customers.
