Ebola Virus, Flu, and the Common Cold:What You Can Do About It
There have been a few outbreaks in the world causing concern for many people. They are afraid to take trips, get on public transportation, or even go into public restroom facilities. Perhaps their fears are well-founded.
Our CFO, John Constable, while travelling recently noticed floor fans blowing full force in the public restrooms on the NYS Thruway and then later in the restroom at LaGuardia Airport. While initially placed to dry the floors, a problem is created when the excessive airflow blows all the bacteria and droplets that are on the floor and sink counters (from the toilet flush, coughing patrons, etc.) into the air for people to inhale, a fact of which many of us are unaware. Thorough washing and drying of hands is a key precaution. If you feel the need to wear a mask, you may do so as well.
While Ebola is transmitted through bodily fluids, the disturbance of air can cause these fluids to become airborne as droplets become in contact with others and thus the disease spreads even though you may be taking other precautions to protect yourself.
Another issue is the use of inappropriate equipment or chemicals for cleaning. Take the rag or sponge still used by some cleaners. These are breeding places for bacteria which is then spread over every surface that they touch. Dirty maid carts cause cross contamination as they travel from one area to another. All of these cleaning infractions increase the spread of germs for not only Ebola but the flu and common cold among others. Floors need to be cleaned with an antimicrobial floor soap to kill the germs lodged there and, of course, bathroom fixtures need germ killing chemicals to eliminate any threat. Professional cleaning companies should monitor the cleaners to ensure that they have the proper equipment and supplies to keep not only the public safe, but the cleaning staff as well. Proper cleaning and sanitizing is particularly important at this time of year. Now, with this added threat, we all need to be more vigilant and aggressive in our efforts.
If you are in a public place there is little you can do to change the situation except to guard yourself and those with you. However, if your workplace, gymnasium, regular transportation station or any place you visit regularly is utilizing poor practices, you can speak out and let them know it needs to be changed.
At Constables we oversee several municipal, medical, and educational buildings and have trained cleaners who understand the necessity of being thorough with all cleaning to protect those who use the facility. They are aware of the proper way to use equipment such as fans and when they are inappropriate.
We would be happy to meet with you to discuss these issues and offer a plan to better protect you and yours in the workplace.
