Keep your office hygienic in 2019

Written by Lemay Rogers
Workplace Hygiene

Whether you believe in new year’s resolutions or not, a new year brings with it new challenges and the opportunity to start afresh. For some, it is opening a new set of files and electronic folders, for others the replacement of a dead plant (we can help with that BTW), but for me, it is a good old-fashioned desk clean, equipment sanitising regime and a proper wipe down of my desk and chair with sanitiser. You might think that I’m going a bit overboard but there is a method to my madness.

Did you know that absenteeism costs the South African economy R12 - R16 billion per year? By looking after your office space you can limit the risk of cross-contamination which is known to cause illness.  I don’t know about you but, other than starting off the year healthy, I would prefer not to be hit with any doctor’s bills during January when my budget is most fragile.

I stumbled across one of my older blog posts which covers a few ideas on office hygiene and a few proactive ways to limit your risk. Here is an infographic to summarise.
