OFFICE KITCHENS DIRTIER THAN BATHROOMS
Rumors aren’t the only thing going around in the break room. A study found that most office kitchens are dirtier than the bathrooms! Half of surfaces in workplace kitchens- including cutting boards, fridge handles and appliances- are contaminated with germs that can cause gastrointestinal illness. In fact, three quarters of office kitchen surfaces are home to more bacteria than the average bathroom garbage can. Think ordering in will keep you safe? Think again- phones, desks, doorknobs, copy machines and elevator buttons are all bacteria hotbeds as well.
