Good Hand Hygiene Controls Spread of Germs

Each year, it is estimated that 32 million school days are missed due to flu while up to 180 million school days are lost due to the common cold. School administrators are well aware that increasing proper hand washing is effective in decreasing illness.

Absenteeism from illness results in a significant loss in productivity in all work environments. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) state that hand hygiene is one of the most important steps in preventing illness and stopping the spread of germs to others. The CDC reports that appropriate handwashing practices can reduce the risk of foodborne  illness and other infections; handwashing can reduce the risk of respiratory infections by 16 percent.

When choosing hand hygiene products, people want high quality products that are gentle on hands, and priced competitively. Hand hygiene product dispensers should provide the highest level of durability and precision.

Understanding why proper hand hygiene is important will help maximize hand hygiene    practices in your facility.In order to accomplish this, people must be supplied with the proper    products, education, awareness, and training to make hand hygiene a part of their everyday routines.

 Ask us to recommend the right hand hygiene system for your facility.  In most cases, converting to a foam soap system like “Symmetry” from Buckeye will not only upgrade your facility but save you on  your hand washing costs.
