Tips to Keep Workplace Flu at Bay

The flu can easily wipe out the productivity of a workplace. Fortunately, there are ways to slow its spread even in such crowded conditions. Try these flu prevention techniques to keep your workforce healthy.

One of the best ways to keep flu from spreading at work is to keep sick people out. Encourage flu-ridden employees to stay home, and make it easy for them to do so without repercussions or overly onerous requirements for proof of illness.

Promote influenza vaccinations. If your office is large enough, you can even have a nursing company come in and provide shots on site. By lowering the number of susceptible people, you lessen the chance of an outbreak at your company.

Educate employees on good handwashing and other sanitation practices. The CDC recommends frequent, thorough handwashing as a method of reducing germs. Also, sick people should cover their mouths and noses with a tissue when sneezing or coughing.

Consider displaying posters on good sanitation practices and put them in obvious places to both educate employees and remind them to actually use those practices.
