Did you know that according to the Center of Disease Control, the 2017-2018 flu season was the deadliest in recent years? It also caused a record number of hospitalizations due to severe symptoms and complications. As the weather cools, the number of flu cases always go up. The most vulnerable to succumb are the elderly, infants, and toddlers. It’s important to be aware of how you can help prevent the spread. But how? For construction site managers, event planners, and event organizers, a good prevention measure is hand hygiene stations. Hand washing and sanitizing is one of the top ways to prevent the flu from spreading, so if you are planning or in charge of any type of event or temporary job site, portable hand hygiene stations are the ideal way to help keep your workers and guests safe and healthy.
In El Paso, cooler weather is a godsend for construction workers. It means relief from the relentless summer heat in the desert. But another danger springs up in its place: the flu. Any construction manager or foreman would do everything they can in order to have a full crew and to keep the project moving forward. Unfortunately, if you don’t take proper flu prevention methods, like providing accessible hand hygiene stations, the flu can quickly devastate a work site. It can spread quickly among workers who work side by side, bringing work to a standstill until you can find temporary workers or your crew gets better. Better safe than sorry, right?
October and sometimes even November can provide the perfect mild weather for a nice outdoor wedding or party in El Paso. However, if you are planning an outdoor event where there are no, or limited, bathroom facilities, it can get tricky. Considering you are probably not going to want regular porta potties, consider renting luxury portable bathroom trailers. They come with installed hand hygiene stations as well as privacy stalls that make the entire unit seem more like a typical bathroom than a portable restroom. At Sarabia’s Portable Jons, some of our units even have running water, lights, and other amenities that will make your guests comfortable.
If you are an event planner or organizer for a big event, such as a fair, a festival, or even an outdoor concert, regular porta potties will usually do the trick. However, during the flu season it’s also important to be a conscious planner. Nobody wants their event to be the source of a dangerous flu outbreak. It’s important to have portable hand hygiene stations, even if they just offer hand sanitizer as the only option. It help prevent the spread of the flu as well as helps any guests feel cleaner and hygienic after using the bathroom.
