There’s no better way to communicate the significance of hygiene than with amusing hygiene facts that we can all learn from. You might not realise how many bacteria you come into contact with on a daily basis because there are so many germs and bacteria on the loose. We want to make sure your staff is safe and prepared for any infections that may be lurking around. Take a look at these 7 hygiene facts, which should help you understand the necessity of maintaining good hygiene all year.

Before we get into the details, it’s probably a good idea to first define hygiene in order to better comprehend the information you’ll find below.

What is hygiene?

Hygiene is the activity of keeping oneself, others, and the environment in which you work, live, and play clean and hygienic in order to avoid and lessen the risk of illness and infection. Maintaining proper hygiene in circumstances and places such as at home, when you sleep, when you eat and prepare, and in the workplace is critical for your own health and the health of others.

1. Dry your hands

We’ve been told to wash our hands with soap regularly. But nobody told us to dry them as many times as we wash our hands. We’re 1000 times more likely to spread bacteria with damp hands. Use hand towels or paper towels to dry your hands. 

2. Toilet germs are following you

When you flush a toilet with the lid up, a tiny mist of microorganisms that can cause disease is thrown into the air. Germs can travel up to 6 feet from a flushing toilet.

 The moral of the story is that closing the toilet lid before flushing and installing a toilet seat cleaning can help ensure that your washroom customers are safe. Commercial air purifiers can also aid in the treatment of washroom air to eliminate hazardous germs and bacteria.

3. Give your workspace a regular clean

57 percent of coworkers rate their co-workers depending on how neat their desk is.

You’re not one of them, are you? Then it’s possible that everyone else is chatting about your desk. Sort your work items and maintain your workspace tidy so that people at work feel safe and sanitary.

4. Food Hygiene at its Worst

Only 20% of people wash their hands before preparing food, and only 39% wash their hands before eating.

To avoid illness or disease, avoid allowing germs into your system and always wash your hands before eating and before cooking as well.

5. Perhaps the Stairs Next Time?

Elevator buttons have 22% more bacteria on them than toilet seats.

Next time you use the elevator, remember to sanitise your hands after you’ve pushed all of the buttons.

6. The power of your sneeze

Did you know that the germs and other particles released by sneezing can travel up to 130 kilometres per hour?

Sneezing, similar to vomiting, can transmit germs up to 10 feet and travel quicker than the speed limit on a highway. You can’t stop a sneeze because it’s an instinctive reaction, but you can handle the aftermath properly, such as washing hands, using tissues, using hand sanitizers, and so on.

7. Dial 911- We have an emergency 

Cell phones contain 10 times the amount of bacteria found on most toilet seats.

Yes, the device on which people nowadays spend the most of their time has more bacteria than a toilet seat. Few people think about cleaning their phones, but now is a good time to start. It’ll hardly take 2 mins. Take a tissue, add sanitiser and wipe your phone with it. Viola! You have a clean phone now.

Were these facts shocking or did you already know about it? Tell me in the comments section.
