Medical Hazard At Work

Written by Cheryl Tay on . Posted in Cheryl Tay News | Latest Industry News

Is your throat sore? Is your nose running? Do you have a fever? If you have any of these symptoms, chances are that you got them by sitting at your desk.

Although it might look sterile, in fact, your desk harbors more germs and bacteria on it than a kitchen table or even a toilet.

That shouldn’t be surprising when you think that at least 50% of Americans eat lunch and snack at their desks and one-third of workers go to work when they’re sick.

When combined with the fact that we touch our faces 16 times every hour, it might be a miracle that we aren’t sick all of the time.

The remedies to the spread of illness in the workplace are simple enough: wash your hands and your space, unchain yourself from your desk for lunch, and take a day off when you’re not feeling well.
