Toolbox Talk Health and Safety Topic: Do Your Part to Prevent Cold and Flu at the Workplace

Looking for a Toolbox Talk Health and Safety topic? We’ve got you covered! In this message, we remind workers about the importance of cold and flu prevention at work.

Nobody likes getting a cold or flu, so you really need to take steps to protect yourself. How? Well, when it comes to cold and flu prevention tips for the workplace, the most obvious thing you can do is wash your hands often with soap and hot water, or make use of an alcohol based hand rub. This is especially important to remember when you go out in public, as you could have been exposed to many germs from completing a simple task such as touching a shopping cart or handrails on a staircase. Be sure to wash your hands before you eat or smoke, as this will prevent germs from entering your mouth. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth – as germs can spread this way. If you are sick, please stay home from work so you don’t infect your colleagues. If you must come to work, cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze and properly dispose of the tissue.
