As Governments around the world are working
to contain the spread of the Swine flu (H1N1) virus, hygiene
experts, Deb Limited and B & T Cleaning Supplies Limited,
give their recommendations on how organisations can fight
against flu and supply effective hygiene products.
The first step in successfully fighting flu
is to understand how the virus is spread. Hands are the main
vehicle for transmitting germs from one person to another,
either directly or by touching shared objects and surfaces
that may have been contaminated by the airborne flu virus.
The Health Protection Agency advises that
people should cover their nose and mouth when coughing and
sneezing, throw away dirty tissues promptly and carefully,
and to wash hands and surfaces which are touched regularly.
Infection control experts, Deb Limited,
consider good hand hygiene to be the single most effective
means of preventing the spread of infection. They advise
that organisations can reduce the risk of catching and
spreading flu by not only providing adequate hand washing
facilities but also through promoting the use of a hand
sanitiser; applied regularly to clean, dry hands to
complement routine hand washing; advice which is echoed by
the USA Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Christine Mottershead, Marketing Director for
Deb Limited, explains: “Although businesses frequently
undertake flu planning, an area that is often missed is the
importance of implementing and maintaining appropriate hand
hygiene practices. By adopting good hand hygiene practices
employers could reduce the impact of sickness absence and
the associated business costs that can threaten an
organisation and consequently help to protect it’s
employees, customers and reputation.”

to basics and beat the flu!
