To keep your employees safe and healthy, it’s important to take another look at how and when your break room space is cleaned and disinfected.

#1 Avoid using community cleaning tools such as sponges and dish towels. These items are notorious for hoarding bacteria even in a normal home setting. In an office setting with multiple people using them, it’s just not a good idea. The goal of washing out your coffee cup turns into more than cream and sugar floating in your coffee. Instead, clean your dishes with paper towels or a clean dish towel that you bring from home each day. Or, bring a clean set of utensils with you from home when packing your lunch.

#2 Even when trying to avoid contact with often touched items, your break room and other spaces in your office should still be disinfected on a regular ongoing basis during this COVID-19 pandemic. Objects and surfaces such as countertops, door handles, vending machine buttons, microwave, and refrigerator handles can be hotspots where bacteria and viruses can live and should be regularly disinfected.

#3 Have Hand Sanitizer Stations Available. For the time when employees don’t have access to soap and water to be washing their hands often, it’s important for your spaces within your business to have hand sanitizer stations available for employees to use. The CDC recommends “an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.” It’s important to coat your hands with enough sanitizer that covers all surfaces. Once applied rub your hands together until dry, this should take about 20 seconds or so.
