This is an email I received today from our safety patrol. Apparently its taken this long for them to realize that people don’t wash their hands or anti-bacterialize their area and they need to use spell check!
Cold anf Flu Precautions: With cold and flu season upon us it is important to take precautions to protect against and prevent the spread of illness. Two of the easiest precautions to minimize cold and flu risk are to regularly wash hands and to keep telephones clean. Because of the office move, arrangements have been made to have the cleaning personnel wash all telephones. In addition, we have obtained a supply of disposable telephone cleaning swabs. If you need to clean your telephone please see me to obtain a cleaning swab.
If you do get a cold or the flu please have consideration for others. When appropriate, stay home.
I do find it interesting that they raised our health costs, gave us less options, upped our co-pay, took away the free flu shots that were offered once a year and continually do not regulate the temperature to keep us all healthy. The member of the patrolmans very group is a known habitual offender, so how dare they send this email. Big brother took away some of our sick time based on years of service including some paid time off hours (those of us here more than 10 yrs suffered a few hours lost) and then they tell us to stay home. They really should be disinfecting the copiers, fax, door handles, before the phones, and put anti bacterial soap around. Aside from that it smells like dead animal in the hallway and a musty smell when they turn the heat on. Hmm…and they think we are spreading viruses?
