Targeting "Hot Spots"
Placing hand sanitizer and signage in common areas and breakrooms is a step in the right direction. However, studies indicate it simply isn't enough to make a real impact. Targeting "hot spots" with hand and surface hygiene is a key step toward reducing the spread of germs. Objects that are touched by many people throughout the day - such as elevator buttons, door knobs and copiers - should be cleaned and disinfected daily in order to help break the chain of germ transmission. Following proper hand washing techniques and the use of disposable paper towels can help in lowering the risk of cross-contamination.
Every 24 hours, we touch 7,200 surfaces.1 You also touch your face 522 times a day.2
The average desk has 400x more bacteria than a toilet seat.3
The average mobile phone harbors over 6,300 bacteria.4
Water fountain spigots have 19x as much bacteria as a toilet seat.5
Touchless Dispensers and Paper Towels
Paper towels are critical to proper hand hygiene as they can remove up to 77% of bacteria that remains on hands after washing. Jet Air Dryers can harbor 48x more bacteria than found on a toilet seat.
