Employees call in sick due to poor workplace hygiene

IT'S a rare occurrence to have a spotless workplace.

And let's face it - there's one colleague's desk who you secretly want to dowse in disinfectant when you walk past.

With recent research suggesting that 1 in 6 people have required a sick day from work as a result of poor work place hygiene, now seems a good a time to find out people's worst habits.

The research suggested phones, keyboards, tea canisters and toilet doors contained the most germs and bacteria. 

What do you think is the dirtiest and most unhygienic part of your office?
