As an employer, you work hard to ensure that your employees are safe and healthy while at the office. But did you know that the drinking water you offer staff and clients may not be as clean as you think?
This infographic shares common drinking water contaminants that every employer should be aware of.
Common Office Drinking Water Contaminants
- Heavy Metals
Lead, mercury, and arsenic are all heavy metals that can be found in drinking water that doesn't meet water purification standards.
Chlorine is used in municipal water treatment to ward off water-borne disease, but it can sometimes give drinking water a “chemical” taste and smell.
Water can become contaminated with human or animal waste which may result in the presence of E. coli, salmonella, and other contaminants.
Nitrates can accumulate in drinking water due to erosion of natural deposits in the ground, fertilizer use, and manure applications.
Pesticides that are sprayed on crops and plants also make their way into public drinking water supplies.

Top of the line office water dispensers use an advanced water purification process to remove impurities like heavy metals, disinfect water to drastically reduce bacteria and virus count, and keep water cool and sanitary until its ready to be dispensed.
