3 Ways to Make Your Workplace Safer Through Hand Hygiene

Hand hygiene is crucial in the workplace. Illness-causing germs can spread quickly, and keeping your hands clean is the best way to prevent your coworkers and yourself from getting sick.

The last thing you want to do is create an environment where a customer might get sick. If you have employees, you want to keep sick days to a minimum. Providing proper hand hygiene is an easy, relatively inexpensive way to keep your facility safe.

Here are three simple steps you can take to make sure proper hand hygiene is available to your employees, customers, and visitors.

  1. Make sure all your restrooms have good, working soap dispensers
  2. Make hand sanitizer available to everyone
  3. Make paper towels available in the restrooms

Work Smarter


“[E]ven though the amount of time you work tends to match how productive you are as if on a sliding scale, length of work and quality of work at a certain point become inversely related. At some point, in other words, the more you work, the less productive you become.”


“The real goal with knowledge — and where you can out-learn your competitors — is to internalize learnings and let things you learn change you. After all, you can know the name of all the tools in the shed but, if you’ve never learned to use any of them, your knowledge isn’t worth very much.”


“Most entrepreneurs don’t start a business because they’re experts at small business financing — and they shouldn’t need to be. However, they do need to become experts at financing their businesses. I’m convinced it starts with understanding some of the questions a lender will likely ask and why they ask them.”


“Having friends at work is beneficial both for the employer and you, the employee. Many of you work at least 8 hours a day and see the same people every day. Therefore, having friends at work gives you an incentive to come to work every morning.”


“Staying happy in the working world can be challenging, especially if you feel that your job is unfulfilling or more stressful than it’s worth. But your attitude can determine your destiny; a bad attitude can make a great job seem terrible, while a positive mentality can turn even a bad day into a relatively enjoyable experience.”

Books We Read

Start with Why

by Simon Sinek

We are all able to explain what we do and how we do it. But the more challenging conversation to have is why we do what we do. Why does our company or business exist? When we can answer that, the what-we-do and how-we-do-it are not neglected, but easily follow.

In the book Start with Why by Simon Sinek, the main thesis is about understanding the importance of why your business exists. In other words, why are you doing what you’re doing? It also features The Golden Circle, a simple visual tool, to help embed this concept deep in your brain. Once you grasp it and operate on its truth (with consistency), all other things fall neatly into place.

How to Handle Salespeople

If you are in business, expect solicitors

If you build it, they will come. Salespeople, that is. If you own or manage a business, you will have to handle salespeople coming around, offering to supply you with this or that.

When you’re busy, the last thing you want to do is drop everything and talk to some pushy salesman. With a bit of planning, you can handle salespeople easily and comfortably. Here’s how.

First, you must face the fact that if you are in business, you need suppliers. They help you get your work done. The next salesperson that drops in on you might actually have a great solution to a challenge you have or a way to save you money on something you really need. So having a strict NO SOLICITORS policy is short-sighted.

Shoes for Crews

Slips and falls account for 35% of all accidents in the workplace. 65% of all work days lost due to injury are caused by slips and falls. Between workers’ compensation claims, increased insurance premiums, and missed work days, the cost to employers is enormous.

One of the easiest ways to reduce the number of workplace injuries is to make sure you and your employees wear slip-resistant shoes. Whether it is working in restaurant kitchens with grease on the floor or walking through the winter snow and ice, protect yourself with proper footwear.

At Aire-Master, we buy ours through Shoes For Crews. We’ve found that their shoes hold up better than others we’ve tried, and they have the best overall assortment and pricing. Best of all, we have seen a significant reduction in slip and fall accidents since requiring our service representatives to wear non-slip shoes.
