Hand Washing Basics: Fight the Flu with Clean Hands

Wash your hands. How many times did our parents tell us that growing up? Turns out, it was pretty good advice. The simple act of hand washing is one of the easiest and best ways to prevent the spread of germs. That makes it key in regards to cold and flu prevention. While most of us don’t think we need hand washing instructions, there are a few general suggestions you should keep in mind. They can have a big impact on workplace wellness.

For the cleanest hands, follow these six steps every time you wash. First, wet your hands with running water. Next add hand soap and create a rich lather. Then rub your hands together for 20 seconds. That’s about as long as it takes to sing happy birthday quietly in your head two times. Fourth, rinse your hands thoroughly under running water. Then dry your hands with clean paper towels. And, finally, use the wet paper towel to turn off the faucet and open the handle of the bathroom door when you leave.




Reminding co-workers of these commonsense guidelines to cleanliness will go a long way toward promoting workplace wellness and reducing employee absenteeism due to colds and flu.
