Building an Effective Hand Hygiene Program

The top 3 tips to help your customers develop an effective hand hygiene program

Proper hand hygiene plays a critical role in limiting the spread of viruses and bacteria. With facilities beginning to reopen, stocking the right hand hygiene products and systems can help your customers get re-open ready! Here are our top three tips to help your customers develop a hand hygiene program for their facility:

1. Identify High-Touch Points

High-touch points are surfaces or shared objects that are used or touched frequently, such as meeting room tables, door handles and shared equipment. Help your customers set up an effective hand hygiene program by recommending they place hand sanitizer dispensers and surface disinfectants near these areas to help decrease the spread of germs and bacteria.

2. Educate Employees on Proper Hand Hygiene Practices

Did you know up to 95% of people wash their hands incorrectly or not at all? Set your customers up for success by equipping them with the knowledge and tools needed to keep their facilities clean and healthy with our Healthy Workplace Communications Kit. Download yours today to help your customers promote healthy workplaces and remind building occupants to observe proper hygiene practices, including step-by-step handwashing and sanitizing instructions.
