In order to make the world of accountants safe, we have designed this blog in which we will discuss some of the most common safety measures that you need to take in order to deal with Corona.
Wash your hands properly
One of the first things that you will need to do is to always wash your hands properly. There are many people who think that they need to wash their hands just before eating but that’s not the right way to deal with the virus outbreak. It will be a better idea to always carry a sanitizer in your pocket and keep using it when you are out of home after every one hour. If you are not comfortable with carrying a sanitizer then you should keep washing your hands safely at public toilets but never forget to use only liquid soap only because if you will use regular soap then it will increase the chances of contamination.
Masks have become a necessity at current. You should know that China has ran out of the mask and this is why it is bringing masks from other countries. Even if you keep on working in your cabin in front of your laptop, still you need to wear a mask as an accountant because it will minimize the chances of catching coronavirus. But any mask being sold at cheap price won't’ serve the purpose. You will need to buy special masks that have thick layers of coverage and you will also need to wear the mask from the right side. If you want then you can carry four to five masks and keep changing them throughout the day. If you are visiting your client then you should not forget to wear the mask before moving out of your office.
If you are bored with your daily accounting practices and maintaining the books of clients then you might be planning to go for a social gathering where hundreds or even thousands of people will come but if you really want to stay safe in the corona outbreak then you will need to avoid these types of gathering. Even if there is a company that is organizing a big accountants gathering, you will need to avoid it for the time being. Many major social gatherings have been canceled because of this reason and this is what you should do if you are being invited to any type of gathering.
Avoid using public properties
One of the best ways to stay safe in the corona outbreak is to stay at home but if your client is not convinced and if you are being forced to visit someone else place then you should completely avoid touching any type of public property if it is not necessary. This will keep you safe from corona and you will be able to serve your client as well.
If you are an accountant then it becomes very necessary to stay safe from corona as most part of your job is related to meetings. So use these techniques and stay safe from corona.
