New Statistics Reveal the Dirtiest Work Spaces
New statistics suggest that up to 69% of British workers believe that their workplace is at risk of being a health hazard and 20% of British workers claim to have been hospitalised after becoming sick or injured at work. This shows just how serious companies need to take workplace hygiene.
Unhygienic workplace statistics
According to a recent study carried out by personal injury solicitors Hayward Baker, the top complaints from British workers about the cleanliness of their workplaces are as follows:
- 16% were unhappy about greasy or slippery floors
- 13% complained about unhygienic work colleagues
- 11% stated that their workplace had unsanitary toilet facilities
- 10% said that their kitchens were dirty
It goes without saying that the safety of the employee is of the utmost importance in any working environment and while a dirty or unhygienic workplace may not be actively dangerous, it could certainly contribute to a range of issues, including the spread of bacteria and viruses. It seems obvious but a fresh and hygienic work space will not only limit sickness, but can contribute to the improvement of staff morale, attendance and productivity. Sick days can be extremely disruptive for a company, so necessary action should be taken to maintain a clean and hygienic office environment.
