Here are five things you can do to improve health in your building this fall:

TIP 1 - Incorporate a Cleaning for Health focus into your daily cleaning routines. Make a list of common touchpoints that your staff will clean and treat with a specialized disinfectant cleaner, like Envirox Critical Care, that provides residual effectiveness.

TIP 2 - Utilize a desktop cleaning system, like Kaifly, that allows janitors to quickly clean and disinfect the desks in your offices or school. Many studies have shown special attention to desktops pays dividends that well exceed the cost of incorporating them into the routine. Video demonstration.

TIP 3 - Remind people about healthy hands through your newsletter and posters. This type of behavior modification can improve on the surprisingly high percentage of persons who use restrooms without washing their hands.

TIP 4 - Install hand sanitizer stations, like Purell with skin conditioners, outside restrooms, near breakroom facilities, inside conference rooms and at the front entryway to your building. A corporate culture of hand hygiene is signalled by these opportunities to reduce cross contamination between workers or students.
