Hygiene in Offices

As people contemplate spending large amounts of their daily lives in offices once again, where shared spaces and surfaces are very likely, it’s important to safeguard like our name states these environments from the spread of germs and viruses.

The more time colleagues spend at high-touch areas such as desks, kitchens and washrooms, the higher the risk of contamination. Office environments provide the ideal conditions for bacteria and viruses to spread and illnesses to take hold. In fact, 60% of work illnesses that result in time off are contracted from dirty office equipment.

Unhygienic washrooms can often be the source, offering optimal breeding environments for pathogens to thrive. Combined with poor hygiene behaviours, the problem is exacerbated as germs in the washroom make their way onto hands and are then spread throughout the office.
