Our hygiene habits at work are extremely important to our health and the health of those around us, yet many office workers are unaware of how easily they can transmit potentially harmful germs from the washroom throughout the office.
A contamination of just a single doorknob or table top can result in the spread of viruses throughout the office building. Within hours, the virus can be easily transferred and cross contaminated to various objects or through human interaction.
Good hand hygiene is one of the most important ways to help minimise the spread of germs in the office. Some employees admitted having left the washroom without washing their hands due to either adequate washroom facilities are not provided or the mindset of cultivating good hygiene practices are not instilled. Providing a good washroom experience can have a direct impact on hygiene behaviours, and optimise the hygiene standards in your organisation.
Germs can spread easily through the air when toilets are flushed without the lid closed. Within 60 seconds of a toilet being flushed the average sized washroom can be covered with bacteria, urine and fecal matter. Managing the germs, scale and bacteria build up within the toilet can help reduce the risk of germs spreading.
We tend to neglect other spaces within the office, which could be potentially a contamination or health and safety risks for employees. For example, at the entrance of the office, could be a hotspot in bringing in dirt and grime externally, or within the pantry, we might be facing slippery floor due to regular washing at the basin.
Introducing proper floor care solutions can help enhance your employee's health and safety, by minimising slips and falls, reduce breeding ground for germs and bacteria, and maintaining your facility with cleaner and unsoiled floor.
