  1. 1. 3 Ways to Clean Your Office An Employer Guide to Flu Virus Protection
  2. 2. About the Flu Virus • Most studies have shown that the flu virus can live and potentially infect a person for two to eight hours after being deposited on a surface. • While the first line of defense in preventing the flu is to get you and your employees vaccinated, properly cleaning areas around your workplace can greatly reduce its spread amongst staff.
  3. 3. The Flu & Your Business • As an employer, limiting the occurrences of the flu amongst your staff is highly important. • For each instance of the flu, a person has symptoms for five to six days and misses between half a day and five days of work.
  4. 4. 1. Use the Right Cleaner • Disinfecting is the only cleaner that kills germs on surfaces or object. Cleaning removes germs, but does not necessarily kill them. • Sanitizing lowers the number of germs to a safe level, as determined by public health standards or requirements and does lower the risk of spreading infection.
  5. 5. 2. Target Commonly Used Surfaces • Take note of objects which are touched or handled often such as desks, phones, doorknobs, computer keyboards, faucet handles, office supplies, fax machines and other equipment. • These areas should be sanitized daily to reduced the spread of the flu.
  6. 6. 3. Encourage Cleaning Collaboration • Make it easy for your employees to help clean commonly used objects by placing disinfecting wipes throughout the workplace. • Distributing hand sanitizer and reminding workers to wash their hands frequently can help reduce the spread of germs.
  7. 7. The Importance of Prevention • Make sure to talk to your management staff to help promote prevention practices throughout your business. • Prevention is a collective effort, starting with employees and their families receiving vaccinations as the best method of defense.
