Are you putting yourself or others at risk?
Adequate hand washing facilities are not optional!
Just how seriously are you taking your hand washing obligations?
We all know the public health benefits of keeping our hands free from harmful germs and viruses, so why do we still neglect correct hand washing practices or fail to provide appropriate hand washing facilities? Too busy, too hard, too far, too complicated, too inconvenient, too expensive, too difficult... the list goes on. Hand washing in this day and age is not optional - whether it be from a practical point of view, or regulatory.
Don't risk yours, your customers, your patients, your residents or your employees health through inadequate access to hand washing facilities. Infection outbreaks can be devastating to your business or facility's reputation and bottom line - but most importantly it can affect peoples lives.
Why do I need hand washing facilities?
We constantly come into contact with various forms of germs and viruses, whether from handling raw food, eating or drinking, going to the toilet, coughing, sneezing, disposing of waste, shaking hands, riding a train or simply exchanging money or goods. The combination of this with touching our eyes, nose and mouth on average 10 times an hour creates a direct route for infection.
Effective hand washing removes germs and viruses from your hands, preventing the spread of associated infections. Having hand washing infrastructure available and accessible is still the pre-eminent factor in ensuring hand washing is regularly carried out.
