How to Keep Your Employees Healthy

Keeping your employees healthy is important for a number of reasons. From keeping your business up and running to keeping production high, there are several reasons why you should work to create a healthy environment for your employees. Especially nowadays, with COVID-19 spreading throughout the country so rapidly, it is important to ensure that if you are having people come into work, you are keeping it clean, disinfected, and safe for your employees.

At Safe On-Site Sanitization in Northern Colorado, we offer disinfectant fogging services that can help keep your office, store, or any other type of business free of germs, bacteria, and viruses. The product and equipment we use work by covering every surface in your business. Our product is safe to use around children, animals, food, and electronics, making it the perfect way to disinfect your entire space without having a negative effect.

While hiring us is one of the best ways to keep your employees safe and healthy, there are many other things you can do to ensure that your employees remain in optimal health. In this blog, we are going to talk about some ways to keep your employees healthy.

Keep Everything Clean

While investing in disinfectant fogging services is a great starting point to keep your employees healthy, you likely won’t be having this service done weekly. Because of this, it is important to keep your office or store clean. Wipe down surfaces daily with sanitizing wipes, use a disinfectant spray on door handles, light switches, fridge handles, cash registers, and any other surface that is regularly touched by people. By cleaning and disinfecting your space daily, you can help reduce the number of germs that people come in contact with. Have your employees wipe off their desks regularly and clean any common areas. If you have time throughout the day, try and clean these common areas a few times a day to help reduce the spread of germs.

Provide Hand Sanitizer

Hand sanitizer is another great way to reduce the spread of germs. Having hand sanitizer stations throughout your office or store can allow your employees to use it after touching different surfaces. Have a bottle at the front desk or the register, in the break room, and any common areas around your business. If you have a store or restaurant that often has customers coming in and out, it is also a good idea to leave a hand sanitizer station near the door. They can use it as they enter and exit your business. This will also help reduce the spread of germs.

Encourage Sick Days

While you don’t want people to simply take days off just because they don’t want to come to work, you also don’t want sick employees in your business. Encouraging your employees to take sick days allows them to take care of themselves without feeling like they are going to get in trouble for staying home. Businesses that punish employees for taking days off when they don’t feel well creates an environment that isn't healthy for a number of reasons. Your employees will be more willing to work hard for your business if you show that you care about their health and wellbeing.

If it is hard for you to allow employees to take sick days, you can always offer them to work from home. That allows them to still get their work done, but not come into the office and infect other people. This is a great option as well because some employees will refuse to take sick days in fear that they will fall behind.

Provide Health Benefits

As your business becomes more successful, one of the first things you should do is work to provide your employees with health benefits. Providing your employees with health insurance allows them to go to the doctor when they feel sick and get the care they need. If your employees don’t have health insurance, they will likely not head to the doctor when they are sick, leading them to be sicker for longer and may even cause them to spread it to more people in your company. Providing health benefits shows you care about the health and wellbeing of your employees and allows them to get care when they need it.

Encourage Vaccines

While you can’t force anyone to get vaccinated, one great way to help keep employees safe is to have the vaccines come to you! Hire an onsite clinic to provide the flu shots for the years and encourage employees to get other vaccines. When you bring the shots to your business, employees are more likely to participate, since they don’t have to make time to go to the doctor for their shot.
