Why It’s Important To Discourage Sharing Of Work Desk Items Among Your Employees

Reports show that while direct or face-to-face interaction and the risks of droplet infection is the prevalent way for germs to spread , it is definitely also possible to get it through shared items or fomites. For instance. items like pens, doorknobs , work desks etc can all be sources of infection. The virus can survive on any surface for as long as 72 hours, during which it can be a potent source of infection for anyone who happens to touch these objects.


A pen for instance when shared among multiple users can transfer germs to many people’s hands and when they touch their face  the germs get into the body leading to infection. So, it is as important to discourage sharing of work desk items as much as ensuring hand hygiene.

While the risk of transmission though shared  surfaces and common touch points is certainly lower, it is always recommended to be cautious and institute new practices that will ensure better health.Here are some gifts that can be considered  when you welcome your team back  to office after the hiatus.
