Okay, we are specifically talking in the office or workplace, whether it be a warehouse, store, or even restaurant…what are the “germiest” hot spots? And let’s face it, although we are still hearing about Covid and we still need to be extra careful, consider all the places where you work that are filled with germs!
A study done by Lysol put together a list of the Top 10 places in the workplace you might want to make sure you wipe down or at least wear a glove before touching…the results posted in an article by Cision PR News Wire .
If you think about it, all these areas actually make sense starting with the entrance way. The door handles being opened daily by who knows who and/or where they’ve been, Then you move to the elevator (if you have one) and the buttons alone…germs baby!
If you have a communal kitchen, then don’t even get me started! Between the vending machine to the refrigerator, think of all the people you work with and how many hands are on that refrigerator handle and the buttons on a vending machine!
And don’t even get me started on the bathroom at work. Heck, I know some co-workers who will even go home if they have to go to the bathroom instead of using the one at work…that should tell you something.
Now keep in mind, I’m not a “germaphobe”, but it does make a person stop and think about all that’s going on at work and maybe it is a good idea to wash your hands constantly, carry that paper towel you used to dry you hands with next time you need to open a door, get a can of soda or nuke a sandwich at work.
