Help Stop the Spread of Winter Bugs
With the Norovirus seeing an increase compared to last year’s figures and appearing to be at a five year high, many businesses are seeing a loss in man hours due to sick employees and with illness rates increasing over the winter months, ensuring great hygiene has never been so important.
The NHS has released guidelines to best avoid falling ill and spreading germs in this winter period. We have taken this guide and paired the points with products we provide which can help make staying well this winter as hassle free as possible.
Antibacterial Hand Sanitisers: The NHS recommends you wash your hands frequently and thoroughly, particularly after using the toilet and before food preparation. Our antibacterial hand sanitisers do most of the work for you. They kill 99.9% of common household germs, meaning as long as there isn’t any dirt on your hands, these will take care of the tiny bugs, invisible to the naked eye!
Disposable Gloves: The NHS recommends minimising contact with people currently infected with the bug. This is all well and good in theory, but many people have dependants where this simply isn’t an option. Ensure you have enough, to make interaction a non-issue and make sure you have enough gloves on hand to deal with clean up jobs. You’ll be amazed at how quickly you can get through them so make sure you are well stocked!
Sick Bags: The Norovirus is known as the “Winter Vomiting Bug” and there is good reason! The NHS recommends flushing away vomit in the toilet and cleaning the surrounding areas immediately. However, vomiting can come on suddenly and without warning and here at Just Gloves we understand that you may not always be able to make it to the toilet. Our sick bags are ideal; they are cheap, handy, turn the vomit into a scent-free gel and tie up lessening the chance for cross contamination.
Disinfectant Wipes: Surfaces which are used a lot can become breeding grounds for the bugs and the NHS suggests disinfecting any surface or object which could be contaminated with the virus. Our disinfectant wipes are perfect for this purpose. They cleanse surfaces of 99.9% of harmful bacteria!
