Preventing the spread of germs when away from home
(BPT) - Eighty percent of infections are spread by dirty hands, and when you’re at home, limiting your exposure to germs with an active hand cleaning schedule can become a familiar endeavor. But it becomes a different matter when you’re out in public, where hand-washing isn’t as routine and germs are more prevalent due to the number of people carrying different bacteria. Fortunately, avoiding germs while you’re away from home is becoming easier as more businesses and public locations are providing options for employees and visitors to keep their hands clean.
Keep an eye out for these ways during peak cold and flu season and throughout the year to help protect yourself from germs while you’re away from home:
* Hand sanitizer solutions – Many businesses are installing dispensers in entryways and congregating areas. While hand sanitizer solutions don’t literally clean hands because they don't remove organic matter, such as grease, dirt and blood, they do neutralize germs, especially when you’re in a location where a sink and soap aren’t always handy. For maximum effectiveness, make sure to rub your hands until fully dried.
