Don't get Covid in your conference room

Regularly disinfect surfaces in conference rooms to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and other diseases. Establish a cleaning routine and train employees on hygiene practices to reduce infection risks.

In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the constant threat of other infectious diseases, maintaining a clean and disinfected conference room is more important than ever. High-touch areas, which are frequently touched by multiple people, can easily become hotspots for germs and viruses. This guide provides a detailed explanation and solution for properly disinfecting these areas to ensure a safer environment for everyone. We will also highlight the top five high-touch areas in a conference room and the importance of disinfecting them.

High-Touch Areas in a Conference Room

High-touch areas are surfaces that are frequently touched by multiple people throughout the day. In a conference room, these typically include:

  1. Door Handles: Handles on doors are touched by everyone entering or leaving the room, making them prime spots for germ transfer. Germs like Staphylococcus aureus (which can cause skin infections) and Escherichia coli (which can cause gastrointestinal issues) are commonly found on door handles.
  2. Light Switches: Often overlooked, light switches are frequently touched and can harbor germs such as Streptococcus (which can cause throat infections) and influenza viruses.
  3. Conference Table and Chairs: The table surface and the arms and backs of chairs are high-touch areas as people often rest their hands and lean on them. These surfaces can harbor germs like norovirus (which causes stomach flu) and the common cold virus (rhinovirus).
  4. Telephones and Remote Controls: Shared communication devices like telephones and remote controls for projectors are handled by multiple people. These devices can harbor germs such as COVID-19 virus (SARS-CoV-2) and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV).
  5. Shared Office Supplies: Items like pens, markers, staplers, and other tools used during meetings are frequently passed around. These supplies can carry germs like influenza virus and various bacteria such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa (which can cause infections in wounds).

Importance of Disinfecting These Areas

Disinfecting high-touch areas is crucial for reducing the spread of infectious diseases, including COVID-19. These surfaces can easily become contaminated with viruses and bacteria from people's hands. Regular disinfection minimizes the risk of surface transmission, helping to maintain a healthier environment for everyone using the conference room.

Step-by-Step Guide to Disinfect High-Touch Areas

  1. Gather Supplies

    • Disposable gloves
    • Masks (if the area is still occupied)
    • Disinfectant wipes or sprays with at least 70% alcohol
    • Clean cloths or paper towels
    • Trash bags for disposal of used cleaning materials
  2. Preparation

    • Ensure the room is well-ventilated.
    • Wear disposable gloves and a mask before starting the cleaning process.
    • If possible, ask others to leave the room to avoid exposure to cleaning chemicals.
  3. Clean Before Disinfecting

    • If surfaces are visibly dirty, clean them first with soap and water. Dirt and grime can reduce the effectiveness of disinfectants.
  4. Disinfect High-Touch Areas

    • Door Handles and Light Switches: Use disinfectant wipes or spray disinfectant on a cloth and thoroughly wipe these surfaces.
    • Conference Table and Chairs: Wipe down the entire surface of the table and the arms and backs of chairs.
    • Telephones and Remote Controls: Use a disinfectant wipe or a cloth sprayed with disinfectant to clean these devices, paying special attention to buttons and handles.
    • Shared Office Supplies: Clean pens, markers, staplers, and other supplies with disinfectant wipes.
  5. Disposal and Hand Hygiene

    • Dispose of used wipes, gloves, and any other cleaning materials in a trash bag.
    • Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds after removing gloves and mask.
  6. Regular Maintenance

    • Establish a regular cleaning schedule, ideally disinfecting high-touch areas after each meeting or at least daily.
    • Encourage employees to clean their personal items and hands regularly.

Additional Tips

  • Signage: Place signs in the conference room to remind everyone about the importance of hand hygiene and proper disinfection practices.
  • Hand Sanitizer: Provide hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol at the entrance of the conference room.
