Hand Hygiene

Initial provides a range of washing and drying solutions to meet your bathroom needs.

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

What happens when good hand hygiene practices are missing?

Adopting proper hand washing, drying and sanitising practices is crucial to ensuring your wellbeing. Whether poor hand hygiene is due to personal habits or to the lack of available hand hygiene solutions, here are some consequences if you and your co-workers do not practise good 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 the Spread of Diseases?

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