Potential contamination from other bacteria and viruses is also more common than you might think, with a study by hygiene provider Rentokil Initial finding that 1 in 4 office workers do not wash their hands after using the toilet.
Studies have also shown the office desk is one of the least hygienic places in the office, harbouring 400 times more bacteria than the average toilet seat, placing the desk in the ‘very high’ category for infection risk. Also in this category, with 3,000 micro-organisms per square inch, is the keyboard, and mouse with 1,600 bacteria per square inch. This is particularly true if they are shared in hot desk situations where microbiological activity has been found to be 18% higher than single user situations.
Other high risk areas are common touch points such as door handles, lift buttons, light switches, meeting room remotes and table surfaces, and lunchrooms.
The annual cost to New Zealand businesses through absenteeism due to illness is immense, with an estimated 7.4 million workdays lost, and direct costs of absenteeism amounting to $1.79 billion.
Regularly cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces like door knobs, light switches, desks, tables and chairs, lunchroom benches and furniture, meeting rooms and collaborative spaces, shared equipment and resources, keyboards, gym equipment, lockers etc significantly reduces infection risk.
Vivotec’s range of electrostatic misters and ULV foggers coupled with fast acting disinfectants provide a rapid an effective means of regularly sanitising to provide a clean, odour free working environment.
Misting is a contactless method of disinfecting, greatly reducing the risk of infection for staff, and reduces the time required to disinfect a typical area by approx 70% compared to traditional spraying and wiping, while also providing much more complete coverage with 65% less disinfectant use, greatly reducing labour and consumable costs.
Using the high capacity cordless backpack models, approx. 3000m2 of office/building space can be effectively disinfected in an hour.
Due to their non-toxic nature, AHP and NaDCC disinfectants are safe for application around people and applicator PPE is not required, unless there is high concentration of airborne mist, in which case respiratory protection is desirable to avoid possible nasal irritation.
Important Note: To avoid surface tarnishing or streaking, AHP & NaDCC are not recommended for use on brass, copper, marble, exposed raw steel/cast iron or zinc coatings. See data sheet for full materials compatibility.
