Hand Hygiene

Hand hygiene is defined as any method that removes or destroys microorganisms on hands. Often, this includes proper hand washing techniques, adequate drying of hands post washing, and the use of hand sanitisers.

What Happens When You Lack Hand Hygiene

Whether this is due to personal habits or the lack of hand hygiene solutions available, adopting proper washing, drying and sanitising is crucial to ensuring your wellbeing. Here are some consequences if you and your co-workers do not practise hand hygiene:

  • 80% of diseases can be spread by touch, hence harmful bacteria such as Salmonella and E. Coli are more likely you be spread to you or by you.

  • If you wash your hands but do not dry them, your damp hands (as well as your co-workers’) are 1000 times more likely to spread bacteria.

  • Bacteria will get transferred to your environment. For example, the average office desk has 400 times more bacteria on it than a toilet seat.

As such, it is important for proper hand hygiene solutions to be set up and good hand hygiene habits to be practised.

How To Reduce Spread Of Diseases?

It is important to promote good hand hygiene habits especially in the office where cross-contamination is rampant. This can be done by having adequate hand hygiene solutions in place to promote regular hand washing with soap, drying and sanitising within your business.
