Championing the highest standards in hand hygiene
Good hand hygiene has always been essential to avoid the transmission of germs and prevent the spread of illness. It’s estimated that 80% of communicable diseases are transferred by touch.
As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continues to escalate across the world, good hand hygiene has never been more critical. According to the World Health Organization, the most important action that can be taken during the outbreak is to wash hands frequently to remove any viruses that may be on them. The challenge is, most people don’t wash their hands effectively. Around 50% of men and 22% of women don’t use soap and, even then, most people only wash the palms of their hands.
As part of our commitment to ensuring the highest hygiene standards, we look at what businesses can do to minimise their risk of exposure to bacteria and other infectious microorganisms with the latest hand hygiene insight and best practices.
