Some people look forward to taking some time off work but, on the other hand, there can be no greater inconvenience sometimes than falling sick, causing you to take unplanned time off. It can be worse when you realise many illnesses can be avoided, and it may have been your employment conditions, and the state of your office or workplace, which may be the cause of your illness in the first place.

Workspace Clean

It may be an unpleasant or even disgusting thought but are you aware the everyday workspace is generally a breeding ground for tens of thousands of bacteria. Many have no way of knowing the desk they work at from nine to five can be home to more germs than a toilet seat, at around 400 times greater.

A new study has highlighted how you may not have scratched the surface of just how unhygienic your office or place of work may be.  According to research, almost 70% of office workers are in danger of becoming ill because of unclean desks and work stations.

Studies say a regular desktop can be home to over 20,000 germs per square inch. There are more than 3,000 germs on the keyboard, over one and a half thousand scurrying on a mouse and around an incredible 25,000 germs on a telephone.

This is why employees are advised to carry antibacterial wipes on their person as if you neglect to clear your area regularly, it could lead to hazardous bugs like E-coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Helicobacter pylori, among others to breed, with potentially serious repercussions to your health.
