The Proper Use of Disinfectants is an Important Step for a Healthy Work Environment

Property owners are more concerned than ever about maintaining healthy work environments. When used properly disinfectants limit the spread of germs and viruses in work environments. Disinfectants are powerful and should be used correctly. Using an experienced company like Executive Image Building Services with trained staff can ensure disinfectants are used safely.

Best Practices

Read the label first

Each disinfectant has instructions with specific important facts:

Precautions you should take when applying the product, such as wearing gloves or aprons or making sure you have good ventilation during application.

How to apply the product to a surface.

Instructions on how to prepare (e.g., dilute) if the product is a concentrate.

How long you need to leave it wet on the surface to be effective (contact time).

Whether the surface needs to be cleaned first and rinsed after using.

If the product is safe for the surface.

EPA registered disinfectants with a label claim for Staphylococcus aureus will also kill MRSA.

Clean first

· Cleaning first removes dirt and unwanted soils from surfaces.

· For disinfectants to work effectively; unwanted soils must be removed first.

· Disinfectants kill pathogens that live on surfaces

Allow Adequate Dwell Time

· Label indicates how long the disinfectant must dwell on a surface.

· Allow recommended amount of time before wiping off.

· Time can vary from one disinfectant to another.

· Do not allow the disinfectant to completely dry on the surface.

Safety Precautions when using Disinfectants

· Always wear gloves when handling and cleaning with disinfectants.

· Mix and dilute disinfectants per recommendations on label.

· Keep Safety Data Sheets, SDS, with the disinfectant during delivery and when stored.

How to Keep Your Delivery Drivers Healthy

Commercial delivery drivers are the life blood of our economy - delivering essential products from food to medicine and goods that support our daily life.

If you are in the delivery or transportation business, you know that drivers are what keeps you in business. Just as trucks need repairs and routine maintenance to avoid down time, it can be very costly and disruptive to replace drivers who become ill and cannot drive or complete their route.

One of the best methods to maintain a healthy driving staff is to make sure to maintain their delivery vehicle to ensure it is clean and disinfected. This includes not only the steering wheel, but also cup holders, seat belts, door handles, gear shift knobs, turn signal knobs, and radio buttons. Any surface that comes into human contact may support germs and viruses.

Cleaning during the day is important as drivers enter and exit their vehicles. For continued maintenance, hiring a cleaning service like Executive Image Building Services, can be an answer to a problem. Executive Image provides routine disinfecting of all points of contact on a daily, or any other schedules as needed.

Here are tips for maintaining truck cabs:

· Ensure drivers wash their hands often. This is proven to be the most effective method to reduce germs and viruses on reach surfaces.

· Wipe down all touch points. Truck cabs should be wiped down daily with a high-grade disinfectant that is EPA approved to kill viruses.

· Vinyl seat covers should be cleaned by applying the disinfectant to a test area first as some disinfectants might discolor surfaces.

· Use cleaning and disinfecting “best practices”. Always clean surfaces first - then use a disinfectant. Disinfectant dwell times (the time the product stays on the surface) is important as to the application of proper dilution of disinfecting chemicals.

· Clean interior of vehicles after maintenance and before they are returned to service.

· Equipment which is used daily to complete work, e.g., pallet jacks, dolly’s, and tools, need to be disinfected after each use or at minimum, between staff use.

· Provide necessary Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) to drivers to help them maintain healthy personal protection practices.

· If you are currently in the process of hiring a cleaning contractor, we suggest you ensure that the contractor outlines in their proposals the steps they are taking to prevent the spread of disease. This should also include specific steps they are taking to train and educate their staff on infection control.

Why handwashing is so important

Your Mom may have told you to wash your hands before you eat. This reminder was more important than you might think. Keeping your hands clean is the most important method to avoid getting sick and spreading germs to other people at your place of work. Many diseases, flu, and common colds are spread by employees not washing their hands with soap and water in the workplace.

The following instructions will help you to wash your hands properly.

Wet hands under clean, running water. Apply soap and lather by rubbing your hands together. Lather the backs of your hands, between fingers and under nails. Scrub your hands for at least thirty seconds. Rinse your hands under clean, running water and dry using a clean towel, paper towels or allow them to air dry.

Here are reasons why hand washing is so important:

Germs Make People Sick

People, especially children, frequently touch their eyes, mouth and nose. Germs can travel from the hand and get into the body, which can make us sick. People and pets spread germs like Salmonella, E. coli and norovirus, which can cause flu-like symptoms and may cause respiratory infections. Some germs can be life threatening, especially for those with pre-existing health conditions. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), proper hand washing can significantly reduce the number of people who get sick.

Cross Contamination Can Make You Sick

Germs have few limits. They don’t care whether you’ve handled food or your computer. Germs spread easily. To prevent cross contamination in the work environment, proper cleaning of surfaces with a disinfectant is the best method to reduce workplace illness. Regular office cleaning with services provided by Executive Image is one of the best methods to reduce the threat of cross contamination.

When to Wash Your Hands

Hand washing should become second nature. You should wash your hands frequently because you never know when you’ve encountered germs. Wash your hands after using a tissue, dumping garbage, before eating, during food preparation, after changing a diaper or after shaking hands. Basically, wash your hands frequently.

Liquid soap is the best choice. Bar soap, especially if used by numerous people can become contaminated. The bar of soap tends to sit in a pool of water and germs can linger on the bar. A dried out bar of soap can develop cracks that allow harmful germs and dirt to get inside. Generally, most people prefer to use liquid soap. Hands-free dispensers are the best.

Germs Can Transfer to Other Objects

There’s a reason why germs spread like wildfire through day care centers and schools. Germs are easily transferred to objects like toys, smart phones, laptops and handrails. That means that anyone who hasn’t washed their hands properly can potentially contaminate anything they touch.

Properly washing children’s hands is vital to stop the spread of germs, but you’ll also need to disinfect toys and surfaces regularly to prevent the spread of infection. This means that you need to disinfect anything that little hands touch, like doorknobs, benches, handrails, toys and chairs. It may seem like a daunting task, but it will help to keep everyone germ free.

When to Use Hand Sanitizer

Washing with soap and water is the best method to combat germs, however, sometimes you may find yourself in a situation where you don’t have access to clean water and soap. That’s when hand sanitizers are most useful.

Studies have found that hand sanitizers with an alcohol concentration between 60 and 90 percent are most effective. Non-alcohol-based hand sanitizers do not work as well. They only reduce the growth of germs rather than killing them. To get rid of grease and germs, good old fashion soap and water are the best choice versus hand sanitizers. You can also wash your hands followed by using a hand sanitizer.

Benefits of Owning Your Own Business

Have you ever had one of those days where you wonder why you started your own business?

Employees calling in sick, an important package did not arrive, your schedule is busy, and you are wondering if that big potential client will choose your company over a competitor.
Why did you think being your own boss would be easy?
Certainly, bad days will happen from time to time, which might make you question whether opening your own small business was a good idea. If you’re having one of those bad days now, then maybe it’s time to remind yourself of the benefits of owning and operating your own business.

Here are reasons I believe I did the right thing by choosing self-employment over my old job and (boss).

The opportunity to build your dream. This is probably the number one advantage for most people. When you are able to spend your time pursuing the things you are passionate about in the way that works best for your circle of people, how can you not be pleased that this is the route that you chose?
Experience a greater feeling of accomplishment. It feels great to know that I own my own business, earning more income than I did in my old job. This also means that I can avoid becoming one of the businesses that fail, which bolsters my sense of optimism about my future.

Enjoy a more flexible schedule.

You have a greater opportunity to schedule your day because that is a benefit of being self-employed. You can pick up kids from school, make it to birthday parties, and enjoy a more relaxed family time.

Greater control over your income.

If you work for someone, they determine your wage and the number of hours you work, ultimately determining or limiting your income. When you own your own business, you gain greater control over the amount of money you can earn. You set your own fees and rates (depending on your service and market) and can work more hours or fewer hours depending on whether you want to increase or decrease your monthly income.

Do things your way.

While you certainly want to do things right, you have more creative freedom to try things. Most importantly, you can be certain services are provided with high integrity and quality. You manage how things operate and what methods are followed. You are no longer involved in unwanted arguments on the best direction to complete a project or take care of customers.

There is less drama.

I do not miss all the drama that seemed to exist with co-workers and clients when I worked for someone else. Now, it is up to me who I spend my time working for and with, making it easier to avoid drama-intense people in order to best protect my sanity.

Choose your own customers.

Speaking of customers, working for yourself means you get to choose which customers you wish to provide services to. So, when you have one that is providing more grief than value, you can decide to let that customer go. This is much better than feeling like you’re stuck trying to please a customer who is a drain on your brain.

Qualify for certain tax benefits.

Being your own boss means that you get to enjoy some tax benefits which include your home office, internet expenses, health insurance premiums, vehicle, entertainment, travel and even self-employment retirement plans.

Control your costs.

Because you are the boss, you have a lot of control over your business-related costs. For instance, if you want to reduce utility or supply expenses, you simply need to implement a policy directing your employees to make the changes that you deem necessary to meet your goals.

These are just a few of the many benefits.
