Fend off germs with these office hygiene facts

19/06/2014

You might think the worst thing in your office is your David Brent-alike boss or wacky co-worker with a “You don’t have to be mad to work here but it helps” mug on their desk.

But there’s something much more dangerous in every room of your workplace – germs.

Indeed, if your office isn’t equipped with the right hygiene services, you’ll find germs skulking on every surface.

Even a piece of office equipment as seemingly innocuous as a telephone can carry up to 25,127 microbes per square inch, while the average office keyboard is likely to have 400 times more germs than the average toilet seat.

Add your office kitchen (where unclean hands eat lunch and paw at the communal cutlery) and your reception area (where people drag in germs from the outside world) to the list and you’ve got a hygiene nightmare waiting to happen.

Why is this outbreak occurring? For one simple reason – not enough people are washing their hands.

If more people in your office gave those digits a scrub, the spread of bacteria could be reduced by up to 80 per cent. Yet one in six people fail to wash their hands after using the toilet.

To promote better hygiene, you need a washroom that will match your expectations. So get in touch with our team for the finest we have to offer.
