The past decade has seen a dramatic increase in dangerous pandemic threats. It seems that seasonal influenza outbreaks are worse every year. Recent seasons have seen the Swine flu, SARS and Bird Flu (H1N1 Virus). It is now well known that the misuse and over-use of antibiotics have helped to create ever more potent bacterial and viral contaminants and every year the fears of a super-bug worsen. Among the most prevalent treatment-resistant infections now are MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) and C-dif (Clostridium difficile).
Unfortunately, one or more sick employees can cost you. The risk of lost revenue from a shutdown will exceed the risk of downtime for a single worker.
When an employee falls ill, there are simple common-sense steps to follow to prevent the spread of the illness around your place of business.
- Avoid close contact and consider using a face mask for personal protection.
- Send the sick employee home.
- Wash hands frequently and avoid touching the eyes nose or mouth.
- Thoroughly sanitize the employee’s workstation and common areas frequented. Pay particular attention to lunch rooms and water dispensers.
