Three Tips for a Healthier Workplace

From the restroom to the kitchen, your office is filled with millions of germs and bacteria. So how do you stay healthy while getting your 40 hours in each week? Blue Chip Building Maintenance, Inc. has put together a list of three simple tricks to help your workplace thrive.

Wash Your Hands

The easiest way to stay healthy in the workplace is by washing your hands regularly. Even if you are in a rush, take the extra 20 seconds to wash your hands after using the restroom, before and after eating lunch, and after you cough or sneeze. Remember to use soap and warm water, washing diligently for at least 20 seconds before turning off the faucet.

Avoid Touching Your Face

Touching your eyes, nose and mouth is something each of us does subconsciously throughout the day, but this habit is one that can further the spread of germs and illnesses.

Think about all of the surfaces your hands each day. Doorknobs, telephones and keyboards are just a few of the many germ-covered items you are likely to come in contact with. Now think about the idea of those germs coming in contact with your face. Gross, isn’t it?

Do your best to keep your hands away from your face during the workday, washing them thoroughly before fixing your makeup or wiping off your glasses.

Clean Your Desk

Make your workspace your sanctuary, wiping down surfaces regularly to prevent dust and germs from accumulating on your keyboard, mouse and other electronic devices. Create a daily cleaning routine for yourself, organizing paperwork and wiping down surfaces at the end of the workday to ensure you enter a clean space every morning.
