Prevent Skin Irritation from Frequent Hand Washing

With all the hand hygiene everyone has been doing during the COVID pandemic, many of us are experiencing skin irritations.

Increased washing, sanitizing, and disinfecting can cause your skin to become overly dry and possibly developing dermatitis, a skin inflammation leaving your hands red, itchy, cracked, and sore.

What can we do to help prevent this? Wash, Pat, and then moisturize. 

Here are five basic skin-friendly hand hygiene steps recommended by UC Davis Health:

  • Microwave: follow instructions on the owner’s manual.

Washing a turkey increases the risk you will cross-contaminate germs to other foods you're preparing.  If you do choose to wash, sanitize your sink.

Avoid Fines by Training Workers

Not training your workers regarding COVID-19 can result in fines and lawsuits.  Sixteen states have passed emergency temporary standards requiring employers to train their workers on COVID-19 workplace safety protocols.  Every state enforces things differently, so it is important you know what your state requires.

Failing to comply with those training requirements can open up a company to fines, and even worse, a lawsuit..

Those who fail to provide training also reduce their defense in lawsuits.
