NY Workplace Dispensers: The Tools For Ultimate Hands Hygiene

NY Workplace Dispensers: The Tools For Ultimate Hands Hygiene

Even though you’ve ensured that all employees and guests use PPE and have increased your janitorial efforts, illness can still spread in your office. Here’s how: 

  1. Through the air when a person coughs or sneezes 
  2. Through close personal contact, such as shaking hands
  3. By touching an object that has the virus on it and then touching you mouth, nose, or eyes 

You’ll have noticed that of the 3 ways Covid-19 can spread in the office, 2 are directly related to hands. Unfortunately, instilling a policy of “keep your hands to yourself” is difficult to enforce and even harder in an open office layout.  This is because there are far more objects and surfaces that employees can come into contact with.  

To prevent illness from spreading, it’s imperative that your employees practice good hand hygiene. They should be washing with antimicrobial soap and sanitizing their hands consistently throughout the day, especially: 

  1. After coughing, sneezing or nose-blowing 
  2. After using the restroom 
  3. Touching trash 
  4. Before and after handling food 

The easiest way to promote good hand hygiene is to have dispensers strategically located throughout the office.
