Protecting Your Medical Staff During Winter

Protecting Your Medical Staff During Winter

The winter season might just be the most hazardous time of the year – especially for medical professionals. For one, the weather can be brutal even for the hardiest and most experienced of professionals. Driving in winter conditions is no walk in the park, either. The winter season’s perils can be just as tough indoors. Slip and fall hazards are on the top of the list, for sure, but there are a lot of other things to prepare for! Here are some tips for protecting your medical staff during winter:

Protection Against the Cold Weather

Even for the most well-insulated facilities, the cold temperatures outdoors can still creep up. Aside from increased thermal regulations in your facilities, you can also ensure added protection with the right clothing. The usual scrubs will definitely not be enough so make sure to include additional warm-up jackets for your medical uniform rental orders.

Protection Against Slip and Fall Hazards

Slip and fall hazards are at an all-time high during the season. With heavier precipitation looming on the horizon, slip, trip, and fall hazards are definitely a dangerous possibility. Thankfully, there are many ways you can combat these hazards – and effectively when done right. Your floor care can make all the difference in keeping your facility safe against slip and fall hazards. For one, you need to install better, stronger floor mats. Make sure all entryways are equipped with industrial scraper floor mats with adequate traction and abrasion. Do not forget to add wiper mats to make sure no muddy shoes can get past you, either.

Protection Against Worn-Out Products

Aside from high-quality apparel and mats, their condition and cleanliness matter just much. Dirty, old, and poorly-maintained mats and apparel lose effectiveness. Professional cleaning and maintenance ensure they last for longer.

Protection Against Winter Diseases

Communicable diseases like the flu and pneumonia are more common during the winter season than at any other time of the year. Many of these diseases are preventable through good sanitation. Aside from cleaning and disinfecting more frequently, proper and frequent hand hygiene is your best defense. Make sure to keep up more than your adequate supply of hand sanitizers and keep your hand soap receptacles fully stocked.
