Employees Can Do Their Part
Today, Gibb Building Maintenance goes so far as to recognize that the behavior of building tenants and employees can effect the air quality and health of their work environments. Thus, we offer the following tips for keeping the air in your workplace as fresh as possible:
- Keep air vents or grilles clear for maximum air circulation.
- Wash hands with anti-bacterial soap and hot water before eating and after using restrooms.
- Frequently wipe phone receivers and key pads with bacterial wipe to eliminate germs.
- If smoking is permitted, do so outside and far away from fresh air intake ducts and comply with all company smoking policies.
- Take care of office plants – dusty, dying plants don’t do nothing to improve indoor air quality and over-watered plants may develop mold.
- Dispose of garbage properly to prevent odor and biological contamination.
- Store food properly. Keep perishable food in the refrigerator and clean refrigerator our frequently to prevent odor and mold.
- Keep eating areas clean to avoid attracting pests. (Cockroaches have been linked to respiratory problems – according to the EPA, certain proteins in droppings and saliva can cause allergic reactions or trigger asthma symptoms.)
