Coronavirus Signage

Need help? Need help? Does my business need Infection Control Signs? Easy-to-Understand UK Rated Infection Control Signage

In the midst of the coronavirus crisis it has become more vital than ever to focus on infection control at work and home. If your business is still fully or partially operational, and especially if you are providing essential services, it is vital that you keep people safe by controlling possible infection and limiting the spread of viruses.

An effective way to remind staff and customers of the importance of infection prevention and control is clear, strategically placed signage. Seton can provide you with specialised coronavirus signage, as well as the usual infection control signage that your business needs, such as ‘wash your hands’ signage or general infection prevention and control signs.

Do I Need Infection Control Signage at Work?


Responsible businesses take infection prevention and control seriously, and always have. Coronavirus may have focused us all when it comes to best practices in this area, but it always has, and always will be, important to protect staff and customers from germs, infection and disease. Most businesses need some form of signage to encourage infection control, such as a ‘how to wash your hands’ sign in bathrooms and workshop areas, and hand sanitiser signage in areas where it is not so easy to wash hands with soap and water.

If you have put hand sanitiser stations around your business, then it will undoubtedly be beneficial to add a please use hand sanitiser sign or a ‘sanitise your hands’ sign nearby. In addition, if the coronavirus crisis has taught us anything, it is that many of us were not washing our hands correctly or adequately, so a How To Wash Your Hands Poster can also be useful.

What Type of Hand Sanitisers Do I Need?


The World Health Organisation Guidelines on Hand Hygiene in Health Care stress that alcohol-based hand sanitisers are needed in order to be sure that you are neutralising the germs on your hands. High-quality, alcohol-based hand sanitisers should be available at relevant points around your business premises and are particularly important when more than one employee is using a workstation, set of tools, or vehicle. Here at Seton, we provide a wide range of hand sanitiser options, including alcohol-based hand sanitiser gel and hand sanitiser dispensers.

What Is the Correct Procedure for Washing Hands?


The NHS has published guidelines, and a video, along with a hand-washing technique poster. It’s important that you wash your hands for at least 20 seconds, using enough soap to cover your hands completely, and ensuring that you wash the back of your hands and clean thoroughly between your fingers. The NHS also advises drying hands with a disposable paper towel when possible and using the towel to turn off the tap. When washing your hands after using a public bathroom, it is also advisable to use a paper towel to open the door, disposing of it once outside.

Make sure that you also wash your hands thoroughly after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing, before eating or handling food, before and after treating a cut or wound, and after touching animals, including your pets. You will also want to wash your hands when you arrive at work, and when you return home in the evening, as well as at frequent intervals during the day.

What Is the Coronavirus Procedure at Work?


The UK government is keen to limit the spread of coronavirus while not causing businesses and individuals any more financial hardship than necessary. It is vital that everyone who can work from home should do so. If this is not possible, or if jobs are considered essential, then staff and business owners must take all reasonable precautions to ensure infection prevention and control. This includes frequently cleaning and disinfecting surfaces and objects that are touched regularly, frequent hand washing and sanitation, the correct use and cleaning of PPE when appropriate, and carefully monitoring the health of employees.

Any employee with symptoms of coronavirus must be sent home and immediately quarantine themselves according to government guidelines, and anyone who is especially vulnerable should be strongly advised and supported to stay at home. The government has put new measures in place to support businesses and employees throughout the crisis, which may help you, as a business, determine what your policy should be.

How to Prevent the Spread of Infectious Diseases


Infection prevention and control is top of mind right now, but the advice is not new and it is really quite simple. Practise good hygiene, and in particular hand hygiene. Wash your hands properly and regularly, and use hand sanitiser when this is not possible. Avoid touching your face whenever possible. Catch all sneezes and coughs in a tissue, or use your sleeve if this is not practical. Throw away tissues and wash your hands (again) after sneezing, coughing or blowing your nose. Clean surfaces and objects that are handled by different people regularly. Use gloves and other appropriate PPE when necessary.

Perhaps most importantly, do not go out when you are sick, and practise social distancing. While these measures are being taken to the extreme during the coronavirus pandemic, they are always a good idea when suffering with any potentially infectious illness.
