Investing in a good hand soap is just as important as a proper handwashing routine. An effective hand soap can help reduce absenteeism and keep facilities healthy and safe. Share these top tips with your customers to help encourage proper hand hygiene practices in their facilities:
Why is it important?
Our hands collect an average of 3,200 different bacteria throughout the day, which can cause foodborne and respiratory illnesses. Handwashing can reduce the risk of respiratory illness by up to 21% and the costs related to absenteeism due to sickness by up to 40%.
Help your customers protect their facilities from bacteria transmitted by our hands with our Healthy Workplace Communications Kit! This kit includes handwashing guides that can be posted in your customer’s facilities to help remind building occupants to observe proper hand hygiene practices. It can also be rebranded with your company name and logo before being shared with your customers. Contact your R3 Account Representative to learn more and request yours today!
Practice Proper Handwashing
Did you know that fingertips and thumbs are the most missed areas when handwashing? Here are three simple steps to help ensure cleaner hands:
- Add a pump of soap to wet or dry hands.
- Lather the soap on all parts of your hands for at least 20 seconds.
- Rinse hands under warm water.
Not all soaps are made equal! When choosing products to add to your assortment, consider hand soaps that are both effective at removing germs and gentle on skin.
