It is no secret that germs and bacteria are always around us and that we can do all that we can to try get rid of it, but it is never enough. The presence of these germs could really affect the health of your employees in the workplace. It also becomes very unsightly as the dirt builds up and becomes grime all around the office. The reality is that sometimes your employees are not always going to practice the best hygiene and cleaning habits and that causes serious health threats to the rest of the staff.

The truth of it is that we come into contact with a range of germs. This could be through handshakes, touching door handles, sharing of phones and so much more. The availability of hand sanitiser is there to help minimise the spread of these germs and keep the workplace more hygienic.

The Average Employee

The bigger your business is, the greater the risk of germs and diseases being spread around to everyone else. It has been said that about 90% of employees will still come to work if they are sick. They might not feel well sick? enough to stay at home, but they are, however, still contagious. This means that anyone else in the office is at risk of contracting that disease. Your clients or your visitors are also possibly bringing in or contacting germs and bacteria.
