Washroom Hygiene In Workplace Revealed
In News by Sanokil Services / May 26, 2016
A new study has revealed office workers spend an average of 1 working week every year in the company washroom.
The study of 6,000 office workers was carried out by a leading Sanitary Bin Disposal site which found 41 hours was spent over the course of a year in the washroom.
The study into washroom hygiene and habits also revealed 27% of office workers didn’t wash their hands every time they visited the toilet.
Something which was alarming from the study was the number of people using their mobile to surf the internet, with 9.8% admitting to using it.
Using a mobile in the toilet will increase the risk of spreading germs because the vast majority of people are unlikely to clean their phone when finished.
Sanokil Washroom Services have a number of simple techniques and tips we offer clients to help reduce the risk of spreading germs between workers.
Washroom Hygiene Tips
Place A Sign – putting up a sign may seem like an over oversimplification but we have found it can be enough to make employees feel like it’s something they should be doing.
Refill Hand Wash – Always having hand wash available is of course the most important part of stopping germs spreading.
Keep Washroom Clean – It never ceases to amaze us how much difference a clean washroom can make to employees washing their hands or keeping good general hygiene.
Bins – Having bins spread around the office can stop people from having to travel across the room with dirty tissues or other infected items.
Regular Inspections – Inspecting your toilets on a regular basis and making sure any hygiene threats are dealt with quickly is vital.
