Clean Hands Stay Healthy
Make Hands Matter
IF SOMEONE ASKED YOU HOW MANY GERMS ARE TRANSMITTED VIA YOUR HANDS, WOULD YOU KNOW THE ANSWER? Probably not, but I’m sure you’d know it’s a lot!
Hands are the main transmitter of germs. We use our hands to carry out most tasks during the day. Because we do it so automatically, we almost forget what an important tool they are.
We use our hands to greet people, to type, to write, to eat, to open doors, to work, to drive...and now imagine how many GERMS you have passed on in one hour, let alone a full day...
Help reduce the spread of germs by washing your hands regularly or sanitising if water isn’t available.
Clean hands will not only help you stay healthy but also others around you. You wouldn’t want to catch a cold or any other infections that make you ill for days so it is important that you take the first step towards preventing the spread of germs.
With winter season knocking on our doors, we need to ensure that we don’t catch that nasty cold and don’t pass it on to family members or colleagues at work.
Staying healthy not only contributes to a better lifestyle but also to working more effectively, increasing concentration and lowering absenteeism.
The 3-Steps to effective Hand Hygiene
When to wash your hands:
Always keep your hands clean, especially before and after eating, after coughing or sneezing or using the toilet.
To effectively wash your hands, soap should be lathered and rubbed vigorously around the hands and wrists for at least 40-60 seconds.
When to sanitise your hands:
Sanitising your hands will also kill many germs and be very useful when access to soap and water is not available.
Wash or sanitise them regularly to prevent the spread of germs.
Don’t forget that keeping your hands cleanis not only important for you but also for the people around you.
Spread the word & stay healthy!
