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 distance of 2 meters from other people and wash or disinfect your hands regularly. There is also an obligation to wear a face mask at the workplace. See the Face Masks section under the subject Workplace for more information on the obligation to wear a mask in the workplace.

Ventilate the interior space of the workplace regularly.

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

In grocery stores, the 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. They must also provide sufficient protective equipment for their employees.
