Personal Hygiene Awareness | Initial Malaysia

One of the most effective ways to protect ourselves and others from falling sick is by instilling good personal hygiene habits in our daily routines. Simple personal hygiene steps such as washing and sanitising your hands regularly can prevent the spreads of harmful bacteria and germs. Besides that, good personal hygiene also help to build self-esteem and confidence.

Why hygiene is important for your business?

In food related industries, good personal hygiene needs to be taken seriously by food handlers to reduce the risk of possible food contamination. Poor sanitation and lack of hygiene in food handling are the main causes in most food poisoning cases. This may result in loss of customer's trust and business reputation.

Cross contamination can occur when harmful bacteria are transferred from one surface to another. Many illnesses and infectious diseases can be prevented through proper hygiene habits.

In offices, good hygiene habits are important to prevent cross contamination among employees, which may affect work productivity and morale. By practicing good hygiene habits in the office, it reduces the absenteeism rates, thus lowering medical claims.

Here are some personal hygiene habits that we can practice daily.

  • Frequent hand washing and use of hand sanitisers to reduce germs on hands.
  • Cover mouth and nose when sneezing or coughing. Wash your hands immediately afterward.
  • If you are sick with flu, it is advisable to wear surgical mask to prevent cross contamination.
  • Wear mask and avoid going to crowded places if you are suffering from respiratory illness.
