This is probably a true story. The events you’re about to read, follow an office, similar to the one you’re likely in right now.
8:14 AM: He walked toward the coffee room, coughing with his mouth agape as he poured his morning brew into his “RATHER BE GOLFING” mug. He yawned, rubbing his hand across his mouth, and then gingerly swiped the underside of his eye, removing some residual crust from his deep slumber. Cup in tow, he staggered back towards his cubicle.
On the way there, he decided to make way over to his colleague’s desk. She had Halloween themed sugar cookies and sent an email, encouraging everyone to come by her desk to take one. He did. He devoured the cookie, leaving crumbs in his wake. He then proceeded to lick his fingers, and then walked back to his desk. As he approached the desk, he set his coffee down and decided that he should first go to the washroom, before returning to his work.
After, shall we say- 10 industrious minutes in the washroom, he was ready to get back to his work. He was in the washroom and left, without almost anyone knowing he’d been there. Now- normally, that’d be a good thing. Except in this case, it wasn’t. He didn’t wash his hands afterwards. And now that he’s back at his desk, he’s done enough to create a Jackson Pollock of bacterial fingerprints, for anyone willing to take a black light to the work space.
The potential for cross contamination from the coffee room, the work space, the washroom, and other areas is vast. You can put Purell stations, encourage employees wash their hands through the installation of signage in washrooms and food consumption areas. But sometimes, you can’t leave any of that to chance, at the risk of losing valuable staff to illness. Sparkling Clean Canada can disinfect your workspace, make it more inviting and make sure the office trolls, such as the one in the above story, aren’t wreaking havoc on the cleanliness of your work environment, or your immune system.
