Cleaning And Personal Hygiene In The Workplace - BUNZL Cleaning & Hygiene  Supplies BlogPracticing good hygiene is one of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of infections. Here are some tips to help you maintain good hygiene:


Wash Your Hands Frequently


One of the most important things you can do to prevent the spread of infection is to wash your hands frequently. Whether you’re at home or in public, it’s important to be aware of how often you’re washing your hands, and to make sure that they’re being properly cleaned.


Wash your hands after using the bathroom, before eating, before touching someone else’s body fluids (such as blood), and after coming into contact with an animal or animal waste. We recommend using antibacterial soap when washing your hands. It should be noted that antibacterial soaps are not necessary for everyday use, but if you are worried about getting sick from germs or bacteria on your hands then using them is recommended.


Cover Your Coughs And Sneezes


It’s important to practice good hygiene if you want to prevent the spread of infection, says Estela Arco. When you’re sick, it’s especially important because you can pass on bacteria and viruses through coughing, sneezing, and touching surfaces that others then touch.


To prevent this from happening, try covering your coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your sleeve. If you don’t have anything handy, use your arm to create distance between yourself and others. And if someone near you is coughing or sneezing, move away from them as quickly as possible.

Avoid Touching Your Face


When you touch your face, your hands are covered in bacteria from the environment and other people. When you put your hands near your mouth or eyes, those bacteria can get into your body and cause infections.


To prevent this from happening, try to avoid touching your face as much as possible, according toEstela Arco. If you need to clean up after sneezing or coughing, use a tissue or paper towel instead of your hand. Another option is to carry antibacterial wipes around with you so that if you do need to touch yourself (like for brushing teeth), then at least it won’t be as risky.


Clean And Disinfect Frequently Touched Objects And Surfaces


Frequently touched objects, such as door handles and faucets, can spread germs from one person to another. To prevent this from happening, clean these items regularly with a disinfectant spray or wipe. If you have a cold or other contagious illness, use a paper towel or disposable cloth to turn off faucets and touch light switches instead of your hands.


Touching shared objects and surfaces can lead to the spread of germs, but you can reduce your risk by cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched objects and surfaces.

Disinfecting means killing germs. You can disinfect objects that are hard to clean in a sink full of soap and water, or with a disinfectant wipe.

Cleaning means removing dirt, germs, and other contaminants from an object. You can clean an object with soap and water or a mild household cleaner.
