How to lower your chances of spreading disease

Workplaces in Missouri can be a breeding ground for germs and sickness that can impact all workers. However, many of these different workplace-related illnesses can be fought by taking the appropriate preventative measures that lower, limit, or even eliminate certain health threats.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, good health habits can make a huge difference when it comes to limiting the spread of a contagion. This includes:

  • Not coming into work when sick
  • Avoiding contact with others who may be sick
  • Frequent handwashing
  • Covering up when sneezing or coughing

While some might consider this to be basic, one should not overlook their importance in the overall health of a workplace.

Mayo Clinic repeats many of the same pieces of advice, adding on that limiting contact is of utmost importance. Workers should avoid working at all when ill, but barring that, minimizing the spread of germs is key. This includes not sharing personal items like drinking glasses, combs, razors, toothbrushes and so on. It also includes staying away from food preparation when even remotely suspicious of potential illness, as illnesses can be passed quickly through contaminated food and drinks. Additionally, the doctor should be seen if symptoms don’t alleviate on their own with time, as it could be a sign of something more severe.

Keeping infectious disease from taking root and spreading in a work establishment is of utmost important. Thus, taking care of one’s own health will keep workers safe while boosting the overall wellness and performance of the business.
