Research Report: Cleanliness at Work
Wednesday 25th March 11:30 - 12:00
80% of FM workers believe sick colleagues are responsible for passing on germs, compared to just 66% of employees in other sectors. Research commissioned by London-based Cleanology found FM workers also appear to be more hygiene-conscious than their counterparts in other industries, with just over half being likely to carry sanitising spray at work – 16% more than across wider industry. Dominic Ponniah explores attitudes to workplace illness, the rise of ‘presenteeism’, and cleanliness at work, including techniques for containing the spread of infection in the workplace.
