Handwashing Guide: A CDC-Approved Method for You and Your Workplace
At EDMC Safety & Health, we understand that the world is facing an unprecedented public health emergency as the novel COVID-19 continues to permeate communities near and far. It is our goal to ensure that your workplace is actively taking precautionary measures to ensure the safety and health of both your customers and employees. Handwashing throughout the day is always important, but especially during a global pandemic. Proper handwashing remains one of the most important steps towards preventing the spread of COVID-19. It is common sense, but it works if it is done properly.
Make sure to wash your hands for at least 20 seconds:
- Before, during, and after preparing food
- Before eating food
- After using the bathroom
- After blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing
- After touching garbage
- If your hands are visibly dirty or greasy
Washing your hands at key times with soap and water is one of the most imperative steps that you can take to curb the spread of COVID-19. It might seem like a simple concept, yet it is a crucial step in putting a halt to the virus. We encourage you to do your part in preventing the spread.
Our goal at EDMC Safety & Health is to assist you in establishing and maintaining a safer and healthier workplace. At this critical time, we are sharing some of the ways that you can remain both safe and healthy in the weeks and months to come.
