Effective hand hygiene practices

Hand washing

Providing the right facilities in key hygiene hotspots such as washrooms, kitchens and food preparation areas encourages handwashing habits amongst employees and minimises the risks of cross-contamination.

Hand drying

Wet hands carry a greater risk of cross-contamination than dry hands by spreading 1,000 times more bacteria to surfaces. Therefore, it's crucial to have effective hand drying solutions in place. Our range of hand dryers includes no-touch paper towel dispensers and electric hand dryers.

Hand sanitising

Initial’s hand sanitiser solutions give added protection from infection after washing hands or when hand washing is not available. Our solutions include alcohol and non-alcohol based high-performance sanitisers that give protection from bacteria and viruses.

Hygiene insights

Why wash your hands?

Your body harbours a wide selection of microorganisms — intestinal/faecal, oral, nasal, dermal — as well as carrying many others picked up from the environment. All these actions that you do without thinking can pick up unwanted germs, dirt or chemicals and transmit them to your mouth or to other objects or people.

How hygienic are your colleagues? Not very!

When it’s suggested that someone has dirty washroom habits, you might not immediately think about their hands.
