As Europe’s leading manufacturer of professional office cleaning products, we at AF are keen to share our knowledge and expertise – working hand-in-hand with you to help reduced workplace infection, illness and absenteeism. It’s something which is as damaging for business as it is unpleasant for the individual.

Here are just a few facts we have at our fingertips if you’ve ever wondered what could be lurking at the end of yours!

The average loo harbours 49 germ microbes, the average phone has 25,000 on every square inch and your keyboard 3,500, remembering that 43.7% of employees eat at their desk on a daily basis.

That all contributes to absenteeism which is estimated to cost an average of £700 per employee per year, adding up to the single biggest loss for the UK economy in wages, benefits, disruption and lost production.

But you don’t have to fall victim to ‘there’s something going round the office’ syndrome. We’ve created our Better Health at Work initiative to help you beat the bugs. Take a look at our tips, facts and practical solutions for your workspace, or find out more about the AF products that will help keep your workplace healthy.
