• Food for Thought AF survey

        • AF cleaner

          The survey polled 1,000 adults across Britain who regularly use technology in the workplace, such as desktop computers, laptops, tablets and mobile phones.

          Only 35% of employers provide adequate cleaning solutions for staff to keep equipment clean and hygienic

          54.8% of workers frequently eat at work, picking up phones, touching screens and tapping on keyboards

          Despite the lack of proper cleaning of technical items, the poll found that 47% of men compared to 33% of women cleaned Tech equipment themselves

          A further 42% of men and only 28% of women have their office equipment cleaned by third party cleaners

          42.1% wipe the mobile phone screens with a sleeve or other item of clothing and only 13% used a specialist cleaning cloth

          "Most of us use specially formulated cleaning products, such as anti-bacterial sprays, to maintain a hygienically clean environment at home and it's our job to ensure people understand the benefits of AF International's item specific cleaning products for a much cleaner and germ-free environment at work."
          Karen Harrison, Group Marketing Manager, AF International
