Reduce Staff Sickness and Absenteeism

Computer keyboards and office phones carry germs. It’s a well known fact that there can be hundreds of bacteria on a keyboard or a phone.

Daily computer care should be part of a company’s office cleaning routine and should include, as a matter of course, a wipe-down using a cloth dampened with a squirt of anti-bacterial spray, or using a moist wipe that will reduce the spread the germs significantly.

And, lets not forget the sticky fingers, flakes of skin, broken hair, dust, spilt drinks, food crumbs or dribbles and sneezes all work their way deep into the keyboard which, over time, creates more bacteria build up in to a potential hazard.

Office keyboards and phones are a primary source for staff catching colds, flu and sickness bugs.

You can easily reduce sickness absences in your workplace by having your office keyboards and phones included as part of your daily office clean.
