Global Handwashing Day 2019 Headerbanner 780Px

Think again about hand hygiene throughout your working day...

Did you know?

Global Handwashing Day 2019

As you go about your working day think about all the moments that hand hygiene is important for you and your colleagues. Micro-organisms can be passed on to others when people don’t wash their hands and then touch shared surfaces such as equipment, stationery, printers and water coolers. And this in turn can spread illness in the workplace. 80% of infections are spread because people touch contaminated surfaces.

We are lucky enough to have access to good handwashing facilities in the UK so let’s use them! Did you know that only 60% of the world’s population has access to a basic handwashing facility.12

Washing and drying hands with a single use paper towel is recommended by the World Health Organisation.13 And here are steps to follow for good hand hygiene.

Hand hygiene starts with availability to the right washroom products. Scott® Washroom products have been designed to provide hygiene and efficiency.

Scott® Control™ Rolled Hand Towels – designed to be kinder to hands, our Scott® Branded paper towel is made with our exclusive Airflex™ Technology which provides a soft textile-like feel - actively encouraging hand hygiene compliance. And the high capacity dispenser is the most hygienic dispenser versus the competition – one wipe clean with no dirt traps.

Scott® Control™ Foam Hand Cleanser – maintaining good hand hygiene without irritating skin. With a foam formulation for twice the number of hand washes as liquid soap.
