Office Hygiene – “The Facts”

 Some simple facts relating to office hygiene that many of us were blissfully unaware of!

• When someone is infected with a cold or flu bug the surfaces they touch during the day become germ transfer points because some cold and flu viruses can survive on surfaces for up to 72 hours

• A keyboard is a tray and catches nasal droppings, food, skin and hair

• Enough skin falls of a human to fill one tea cup a day

• 31% of men and 17% of women confessed to not washing hands after going to the toilet

• One in five said they did not bother because their hands looked clean

• E-Coli naturally lives in your intestines but you can find it on your phone.

And some simple measures to protect your office!

• Use a disinfectant wipe once a day on your desk, phone, computer mouse, keyboard and desk drawer

• Don’t store food in drawers as it makes them mouldy

• Bin anything edible in the fridge or on your desk on Friday that’s been there since Monday

• Use hand sanitisers regularly

• Wash your hands often

• View desk hygiene as a regular task, not something to do in the gap between quiet times.
