Good morning HR Rev Blog readers! I came across this little gem about office hygiene and as always, when I find something I like, I just have to share and what is even better is that it is full of statistics and I love a fact!
enjoy the read and then go and get some keyboard spray!!
Did you know that your workplace could actually be making you sick, and here are the facts….
there are 21,000 germs per square inch on your mouse, keyboard and chair… yep that’s 21,000…. even worse….
that’s 100 times more than your kitchen and 400 times more than your toilet seat….eeew!
50% of workers snack at their desk with only 20% cleaning it beforehand (although that may change now you’ve read the above!!)
Men’s desks are 20% dirtier than women (remember that when your hotdesking… choose wisely!)
and finally 1 in 3 work when they are sick which is how the germs get there in the first place!
Thank you Learnstuff.com for those fab facts, I will now be going out to eat my lunch.
half way through a semi sunny week, enjoy the rest of it everyone and as always get in touch if you need any help or advice or even if you just want to share some fun office facts firstname.lastname@example.org
