UK office cleaning company SMC Premier has surveyed over 5000 UK office workers about their hygiene habits at work. The results revealed that only 61% of respondents wash their hands properly with warm water and soap after using the toilet. 18% will do a quick hand wash, 14% occasionally wash their hands, and 7% admitted to not washing their hands.
Survey data also uncovered that women are more hygienic than men after using the toilet with 66% washing their hands compared to 53% of men.
When comparing the age groups, 11% of the younger generation (18-24-year olds) confessed to not washing their hands after using the toilet.
77% of respondents said it is highly unhygienic to have a dog in the office.
When it comes to who is responsible for the cleanliness of the office, 6% revealed that it should be left to the cleaning operative as it’s not their problem. For 56% of respondents, they admitted to helping clean up as it would eventually annoy them, and 38% confessed that they reluctantly clean if they have to.
