Paying extra attention to germ “hot spots” in the workplace can help control the spread of flu this season. According to WKRN News 2 website reports, the most contaminated surfaces in an office are also the most frequently touched. This including doorknobs, push plates on doors and computer keyboards.
Buttons are another area prone to contamination. This includes touch pads and buttons on the microwave and vending machines, but also elevator buttons and light switches.
How to Control Germ Spread in the Office Environment
To fight contamination, these surfaces should be be routinely disinfected at least once a day, if not multiple times a day — especially during flu season.
One way to reduce cross-contamination is using color-coded cleaning cloths. Each colored cloth can be used in a different part of the workplace during the cleaning process. For example, red can be used exclusively in the restroom.
