How does the corona virus spread?
A person may be infected with the corona virus and release contaminated droplets into the air while breathing, coughing, or sneezing. When contaminated droplets come out of a person's nose or mouth very quickly, they are immediately placed on objects that are close to the person. Objects that may be contaminated are: cell phones, benches, desks, and… If a person unknowingly touches contaminated objects and then touches their eyes, mouth, and nose, they become infected with the corona virus, and thus the corona virus in Society is expanding. In fact, there are similarities between the way the corona virus is spread and the flu. People who become infected with the coronavirus experience a mild illness and then recover if they do not have an underlying disease. Some people, however, may not be able to breathe easily when they become infected and may need hospital care. The older people get the disease, the higher their risk, and people over the age of 40 are more vulnerable to the coronavirus. The weaker the immune system and the more underlying diseases such as lung disease, heart disease, and diabetes, the more dangerous this disease will be and in acute conditions it may even kill people.
How to prevent the spread of coronavirus in the workplace? You can prevent illnesses such as colds, infections and the flu with very low cost measures. In particular, this must be taken very seriously in construction, and the employer and the engineers and workers in the workplace must continue to work in perfect health. For example, one of the things that can greatly help the health of staff is to reduce working days, which has a great impact on reducing the spread of disease. What should you do if the Corona virus reaches your construction site? Make sure your work environment is clean and hygienic. Constantly clean surfaces using disinfectants. (Phone, desktop, keyboard…) Contact between the employer and the staff during construction may be a nuisance to you and cause the spread of disease among employees, so pay close attention to the constant cleanliness of the surfaces. Encourage your staff to wash their hands regularly and provide them with all the necessary hygiene items. Place hand sanitizers in different parts of the workplace and refill them regularly. Remind your staff about this with the help of posters that promote hand washing and try to install the posters in busy places of work. When holding meetings on the state of construction progress, try to remind your staff of frequent hand washing. At work, try to get trash cans with lids so that trash cans themselves are not a source of disease transmission. Please note that all staff have access to areas for hand washing with soap and water. What was the reason for the hand washing in the points mentioned above? This is because if you wash your hands with soap and water, the corona virus will disappear completely and you no longer need to worry about the virus spreading.
