What are your athletes spreading?
One of the most important safety factors in sports today is
cleanliness. There are many things that can make athletes sick, viruses,
bacteria, ring worm, ect. Schools have had these problems through out the
years, which has made cleanliness one of the top safety issues in athletics
today. You may be familiar with MRSA because you read it in the
news. MRSA is a common bacterium that can cause a lot of problems if
spread. Many healthy people carry it around with out ever knowing it.
It can cause skin infections and can infect razor nicks and turf burns. It
is immune to regular antibiotics and if the person that is infected can’t fight
it off they can be in danger. MRSA is not the only thing that can make
your athletes sick there is also hepatitis b virus, ringworm, herpes simplex
type 1, and Hiv-1 (aids) virus. Cleanliness is very important in
keeping these diseases at bay.
The best way to keep MRSA and other bacterium and viruses from spreading is
prevention. This includes cleaning anything that comes in contact with the
athletes. These items can include: wrestling mats, wrestling gear, cleat
soles, football equipment, soccer equipment, gymnastics mats, and more.
There are many items that need to be kept sanitary to keep these diseases from
spreading. I’m sure you can think of many items in your athletic program
