From radiation to infectious diseases, medical employees have always been exposed to higher health risks than your regular office worker. With many factors out of the individuals’ control, hospitals emphasize the importance of preventing infections through hygiene measures for hands and surfaces.
Hygienic working is now more important than ever
The effective sterilization of possibly contaminated tools and surfaces is at least equally as important as regular washing and sanitization of employees’ hands. The World Health Organization (WHO) identifies the use of “surfaces that can be easily decontaminated” as an important factor when determining the level of healthcare safety.
