Hands are the main vehicle for transmitting germs from one person to another, either directly or by touching shared objects and surfaces. Helping employees to improve their hand hygiene reduces the risk of cross contamination. Guidance from the World Health Organisation:

  • Clean hands protect against infection
  • Protect yourself
  • Clean your hands regularly
  • Wash your hands with soap and water, and dry them thoroughly.
  • Use alcohol-based handrub if you don't have immediate access to soap and water
