Cold & Flu Season Has Begun
It’s that time of year, when colds and flu start to spread and cause many people to get sick. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), flu viruses are most common during the fall and winter months. And between five and 20% of Americans get the flu and miss a staggering 70 million work days. Below are suggestions to help prevent illness and stay healthy.
Handwashing – According to the CDC, washing hands is one of the most effective ways you can stay healthy and avoid spreading germs to others. Well-maintained soap and towel dispensers help make handwashing a part of a daily wellness routine.
Hand Sanitizers – Did you know 80% of germs can be transmitted by hand? Germs on hands can be transferred up to seven times, making frequently-touched surfaces viral hot spots. Protect your customers with sanitizers that kill the germs that may make them sick.
Disinfecting – Germ hot spots are everywhere. In fact, germs can live for days on hard surfaces, and with every touch, you pick up 30-50% of the organisms living there. Disinfectants get right to the source to stop germs in their tracks.
Healthcare – Per the CDC, sick days and lost productivity account for $7 billion in costs per year. Stock immune-boosting products, medicines and other items that help people feel well, stay well and work well.
Personal Protection – Everyday preventive actions can successfully slow the spread of germs that cause many illnesses. Play it safe with gloves and masks that protect and safeguard health.
Paper Products – To reduce the risk of infection, utilize paper products, then toss after use. Stock tissues that trap sniffles and sneezes, toilet seat covers for sanitary protection and towels that thoroughly dry hands – reducing germs by 77%.
