Believe it or not, but more than 25 million working days are lost in the UK due to self-reported illness. Some of these have to be put down to ‘sickies’ pulled after a heavy night out but the majority are usually caused by contagious coughs, colds, sniffles, flus and stomach bugs which were picked up in the workplace. When we work in close contact with lots of people, we are exposed to many different types of germs every day. Most of these are harmless, but every now and again one of your colleagues will have been in contact with someone with a nasty cold and, before you know it, the germs have spread throughout the office.

Equipping employees with hand sanitiser, placing antibacterial soap by all sinks and encouraging regular hand washing will make a big difference to reducing germs in your workplace. Unfortunately, there will still be other places where germs loiter and linger in office spaces, just waiting to take your team down!
