How clean is your office?

ways to keep healthy in the workplace

Most of our time is spent at work, which makes health and hygiene in the workplace incredibly important for healthy living, and ensuring we don’t take any unwanted germs home to our families. While it’s impossible and unrealistic to make your workplace completely germ-free, Dettol representative and member of The Global Hygiene Council Dr Kgosi Letlape suggests some basic precautions to take to prevent yourself falling ill, as outlined in the easy tips below:

Shared kitchen cleanliness

  • Always wash your hands for 20 seconds with antibacterial soap and water before and after preparing food, or eating.

  • Ensure that any communal mugs, dishes, or other crockery and cutlery are properly clean before you use them. Better yet, get your very own to use each day.

  • Sponges and dishcloths can harbour germs2 so request that the office cleaning supplies are changed regularly.
