Infographic: Germ Alert! Your Co-worker Might Not Call Out Sick

We’ve all seen it. One employee gets sick, and suffers through the illness to come in to work anyway. Next thing you know, everyone in the department is sick. Then everyone in the adjacent department is sick. Slowly but surely, that dreaded illness has worked it’s way through your entire company. Just when you think you’re safe, a new coworker will have gotten a cold from their daughter’s friend at school, and the whole process starts over again.

Nobody likes being sick. That’s why, when you do catch something, you’re supposed to stay home from work.

Listen, no doubt your employer appreciates your tenacity, and you’re motivation to power through an illness to keep working, but what they don’t appreciate is that, when you come to work sick, you spread it to your coworkers, affecting their productivity and usually causing a few to call out sick even if you didn’t.

But, alas, germs are bound to be spread in the workplace. It’s just a way of life. So what can we do to help prevent the spread of viruses and bacteria from one sick coworker to another healthy one?

The answer is simple! Use hand sanitizer like Purell to kill germs before they have a chance to infect you!

Check out this amazing infographic our friends over at GOJO put together about the dangers of illness being spread at work.
