Top Tips For Staying Healthy at Work


Staying Healthy During Cold and Flu Season

While your organization can provide support for your immunity in the workplace, individual actions are crucial for staying healthy during the cold and flu season.

What Can You Do?

  1. Get Plenty of Sleep: Adequate sleep is essential for a strong immune system. Encourage employees to prioritize their sleep and manage their workloads effectively.
  2. Stay Hydrated: Proper hydration helps to maintain bodily functions, including the immune system. Encourage your fellow employees to drink water regularly and get a water bottle that you can keep at your desk.
  3. Stay Home When Sick: Stay home if you are feeling unwell to prevent the spread of illness in the workplace. Encourage employers to implement flexible sick leave policies to support this.
  4. Flu Etiquette: Follow proper etiquette when you are sick. This includes covering mouths and noses when coughing or sneezing and disposing of tissues properly.
  5. Clean and Sanitize: Encourage fellow employees to regularly clean and disinfect their workspaces, including frequently touched surfaces like desks, phones and keyboards.
  6. Remote Work: If feasible, consider remote work options during the peak of the cold and flu season to reduce the risk of transmission in the office.
