Key­boards - a dan­ge­rous zone

keyboard problem

Have you dar­ed to take a clo­ser look at your key­board? It is very simp­le: care­ful­ly remo­ve a key with a biro or a paper clip – and you will be ama­zed to see what is going on insi­de…

Key­boards and mice are an ide­al envi­ron­ment for germs and bac­te­ria. This gives rise to poten­ti­al risk situa­ti­ons in hygie­ne-sen­si­ti­ve are­as like food pro­duc­tion or the health sec­tor. It the­re­fo­re makes gre­at sen­se to use spe­cial key­boards and mice deve­lo­ped for the­se are­as so that you can achie­ve the fol­lo­wing results:

  • Pro­tect pati­ents and per­son­nel from any patho­gens
  • Pro­tect your employees
  • Impro­ve the over­all hygie­ne situa­ti­on
  • Pre­vent any noso­co­mi­al sick­nes­ses
  • Gua­ran­tee that infec­tions do not spread
  • Clean­li­ness and hygie­ne at public infor­ma­ti­on cen­tres too
  • Redu­ce pati­ent tre­at­ment times and down­ti­mes by redu­cing the num­ber of germs

We can pro­vi­de was­ha­ble key­boards and mice to meet any requi­re­ments. The spec­trum ran­ges from a water-resistant office key­board to a ful­ly enc­lo­sed pro­fes­sio­nal key­board for use in extre­me­ly cri­ti­cal hygie­ne situa­ti­ons.

Reports from a wide ran­ge of media under­line the dan­ger that key­boards can pose as a source of con­ta­mi­na­ti­on
