Teaching children to understand the importance of hygiene is an essential part of their education. With their less developed immune systems, infections are more easily caught. School life can be frequently disrupted by the spread of communicable diseases such as Influenza, Norovirus and Escherichia coli (E. Coli). Hand hygiene really helps reduce the spread of germs.
Research shows that improper hand washing can cost the education system millions in sick days, for students and staff. So, hand washing is the most important thing you can do to keep them from getting sick.
Improving the school washrooms condition and providing adequate facilities supports can increase hand washing rates and more positive attitudes in students. The simple act of washing hands can reduce the risk of stomach bugs by as much as 47%.
Some risk hotspots within the washroom include toilets, flush handles, cubicle handles and areas around the sink.
Clean, well maintained reception and entrance areas can create positive first impression for students, parents and visitors.
Food hygiene and safety are critical in ensuring childrens’ well-being and maintaining educational standards - keeping both staff and students safe from food-borne illnesses.
An unclean classroom creates a breeding ground for harmful bacteria, affecting both children and staff.
A study by Initial Washroom Hygiene found that the average computer mouse was home to more than three times the levels of bacteria-related contamination compared to the average toilet seat.
