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:
- Did you know the average workplace desk can be 400 times dirtier than the average toilet seat? 1 Keeping your desk clean and clear of food debris is the first step toward a germ-free workspace. Not to mention it’s also good to take a break from your desk and get some fresh air on your lunch break.
- Your keyboard, mouse and phone are germ hotspots.1 Regularly wipe down and disinfect these areas with antibacterial wipes, especially if you share work a station with a colleague.
