GERMS? Pathogenic Organisms?

“Germs” is not a scientific term, but they are better understood as bacteria, viruses, or fungi because these are living organisms.
“Germs” is therefore a broad term we all use to refer to these microscopic organisms that can infect humans and animals.
The more proper term for these bad germs would be “pathogenic organisms.”
A virus is an infectious agent, smaller than bacteria, which requires the cells of a living organism to grow or reproduce. Viruses, need a living host to reproduce but can survive for limited periods outside a host.

Proactive Infection Prevention

Infection prevention is a proactive process which means that administration must work in concert with the Environmental Health Services team, while keeping workers/students/occupants advised of the “Best Practices” for staying healthy.
If there is the belief a “crack team” is able to sanitize the office and completely eliminate the issue of illness within the facility, then there is a lack of understanding and a lack of shouldering responsibility by management.
Therefore, it is very important that staffs are educated in the understanding of these common diseases and infections.
