Some Important Health & Safety Standard Precautions to pay attention to during cold and flu season:

Some other important tips to consider in an attempt to reduce the spread of germs:

Disinfect the following areas frequently or after each use:

  • Frequently used surfaces
  • Kitchen and bathroom faucets
  • Light switches
  • Door and cabinet handles
  • Floors
  • Sinks
  • Toilet and Bathroom surfaces

Wash hands thoroughly once these tasks are completed.

It’s important to wear gloves when cleaning an area that may be contaminated and/or for when in potential contact with any blood, bodily fluids/droplets or waste.

A mask can also be worn if in contact with someone that might be ill and/or where blood, body fluids or feces could likely splash on the mucous membranes of the eyes, nose or mouth.

Universal Precautions are essential to protect ourselves from germs, illness and disease.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Human Resources at hr@spectrumsociety.org
