One of the things no one looks forward to each winter is the onset of cold and flu season. If you’ve ever had the displeasure of dealing with these illnesses you know how terrible they can make you feel. Especially if you did everything to keep yourself healthy but someone brought the contagious germs into your workplace.
Sometimes the spreading of germs at work is unavoidable, especially with all of the time we’re spending cooped up in the office together. As a business you should have your first aid kit stocked to support these symptoms as they arise.
Cold and Flu Medicine
While there isn’t anything to completely get rid of a cold, there are plenty of over the counter medicines on the market that make dealing with the symptoms more bearable. Decongestants, cough drops and cold and flu remedies can go a long way in keeping workers productive and lessening disruption to the rest of the office.
As an added benefit for employees during these cold months, consider having additional items on hand outside of just 1st aid supplies. Things like warm teas for a sore throat, hand sanitizers to keep germs at bay and extra boxes of tissues should be on your list of supplies to stock up on.
Check Your Stock
With so many people getting sick over the winter you’ll need some extra supplies on hand, and you may also find that your supplies are depleted faster than usual. It’s a good idea to get into a regular practice of checking your 1st Aid Kit to ensure its properly stocked at all times and that you have the supplies you’ll need to keep your workplace safe and productive.
