In the wake of COVID-19, health and safety remain huge concerns for everyone who works for your business or walks through your front door. Employees can keep their hands clean by properly using hand soap and sanitizer whenever their hands become contaminated. Additionally, you can provide the products they need to maintain appropriate hand hygiene.
When Should You Wash Your Hands?
According to the Mayo Clinic, employees can protect themselves and others by washing their hands.
- Eating and food preparation
- Caring for someone who is sick
- Removing or putting in contact lenses
Wash your hands for health and safety after:
- Preparing food
- Going to the restroom
- Changing diapers
- Feeding, cleaning up after, or petting an animal
- Coughing, sneezing or blowing your nose
Washing Hands Properly
If soap and water are not available, you can substitute hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. According to the Centers for Disease Control, sanitizers with 60 to 95% alcohol kill more germs than those with lower concentrations.
When you wash your hands, wet them before putting soap on them. Lather your hands and scrub between the fingers and back of the hands as well as your palms. You can use the trick of counting to 20 or singing “Happy Birthday” if that’s more fun!
