Kill Bacteria and Keep Employee Attendance High
There’s a growing issue with employee attendance which is costing businesses millions of pounds every year. This is mainly down to illness which is a particular problem at this time of year when winter illnesses such as the norovirus bug and the flu are doing the rounds. According to government statistics, 130 million days are still being lost to sickness absence in Great Britain each year which has a huge impact on workers, employers and taxpayers.
Nobody wants to come down with anything but no matter how fit and healthy you are it’s inevitable to happen to you at one point or other. It might just start with a little sniffle and next thing you know you’re on your back with the full blown flu.
You will find that illnesses tend to spread quickly through the workplace and certain occupations are at more of a risk. For example, if you work in a hospital, nursing home or nursery you will probably find that you come down with everything under the sun. It’s not just the workers that employers need to worry about – if you work in any of these professions you will be committed to delivering a high standard of care so you don’t want anyone coming down sick.
You can cut down on absenteeism by taking immediate action to prevent the spread of illness. Employees can stop the spread of germs through basic hygiene practices such as handwashing. This will only prevent illness so far so more action is needed.
At a higher level, management should assess their infection control system to ensure that it’s satisfactory. If it’s no existent then you should definitely put one in place because it will save you loads of money in the long run.
