Dirty desks 'increase staff sickness'
Bacteria on office keyboards could increase cold and flu amongst staff as the winter months approach.
The office supplies company, Viking, swabbed a number of desks and found bacteria such as Staphylococcus, Bacillus and Micrococcus, indicating a poor level of hygiene, largely resulting from hot desking and workers eating lunch at their desks.
