Do You Know the Dirtiest Parts of Your Office?
The kitchen, the bathroom, and the break room are used daily by numerous people in your office, and the germs are inevitable.
A desktop alone has 21,000 germs per square inch and only you use it. It’s important to consider how many germs are on the items you and 45 others are sharing.
The bathroom in an office space is filthy. When a toilet is flushed, the toilet will spray water about 100 cm at least. The stall lock, toilet paper holder, and stall door have been sprayed. Many don’t wash their hands after using the bathroom, and then touch the bathroom sink handle and the door handle. To avoid touching a dirty handle after washing, use a paper towel.
The Coveted Coffee Pot
A study was conducted that revealed a coffee pot handle has 34 times more germs than a school toilet seat. Many people in the office are drinking the coffee which means that every hand in your office has touched that pot, resulting in a germ covered coffee pot.
Your hands touch a lot of different items in between typing those e-mails and word documents. We transfer all of those germs to our keyboard. Many employees often eat at their desk. Food gets transferred to your keyboard making your keyboard a breeding ground for bacteria.
To help a healthy office environment, wash your hands as often as you can, sanitize your desk space once or twice a week, and stay home from work when sick.
