Today, cleanliness and hygiene have a high priority in all areas of our life and hand hygiene has never been more important in the fight against the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. As more and more people head back to work, school and public places, cleanliness and hygiene are not only important for the prevention of infections, but also for the health and safety of all people.
A World Health Organization publication notes that “hand hygiene is the primary measure to reduce infections,” and states the importance of washing hands frequently as well as drying hands properly, “Once you hands are washed, you should dry them thoroughly using paper towels or a hand dryer.”
Commercial soap dispensers play a significant role in promoting proper hand hygiene. Viruses and bacteria are easily transmitted through contact between people, and indirectly via surfaces such as door handles, but the simple act of hand washing can prevent a great many occurrences.
Commercial hand dryers also make a difference because properly drying hands is almost as important as washing them since bacteria thrive in damp conditions. Viruses and bacteria cling to the moisture on the hands and failing to dry them properly after washing can increase the chances of cross-infection. Additionally hand dryers provide the possibility of a touch free washroom since people don’t need to touch them at all, minimizing the potential for bacteria cross contamination.
It’s now the time to Hands Up for Hygiene.
