Hygienic measures in the workplace

Rules and recommendations

The workplace is one of the most common places of infection, as there is a significant concentration of people from many different areas, who stay there for a long period of time. Therefore, it is necessary to follow increased hygienic measures.

Keep a safe distance of 1.5 meters from other people and wash or sanitize your hands regularly. There is also an obligation to wear a respiratory tract protection article at the workplace if the safe distance between you and your colleagues cannot be kept.

Ventilate the interior space of the workplace regularly.

The employer is obliged to provide respirators and disinfectants and place them near frequently touched objects. It is also necessary to frequently disinfect these areas, such as handles, railings, shopping carts, elevators, tables, etc.

In grocery stores, the owner/operator is obliged to provide the customers with disposable gloves or tools possibly used for hands in a similar way (e.g. plastic bags) — free of charge. Owners/operators must also provide sufficient protective equipment for their employees.
