Things we can do to protect ourselves
1. Use the sanitation supplies to keep your work areas clean. Disinfect your assigned work area when you start your shift. If using spray, it is designed to mist and DO NOT WIPE. Also, you don’t need to saturate it.
2. When taking a break in a common area clean the area you sit in and clean it when you leave.
3. Dispose of your Personal Protective gloves and disposable masks in the trash receptacles. Don’t be disrespectful and expect someone else to clean up your trash. 4. If you have an idea which can make your work area safer, share it. The best ideas have come from you.
5. Help the custodians by making sure all trash is picked up and disposed of properly. So, the custodians have the time to give to properly disinfecting the bathrooms and water fountains.
6. Try to keep your bubble small to limit exposure outside of work.
