Its common knowledge that we are not washing our hands as well as we should.
What you might not know is that we are not washing our hands at the right time either!
When should we be washing our hands?
- When hands are visibly dirty
- Before eating or touching food
- After eating or touching food
- After using the bathroom
- After nose blowing and coughing
- After touching animals
- Before and after visiting someone who is sick
And what about hand sanitizer?
Research has proven that hand sanitizer and adequate hand washing provide about the same level of protection.
Ideally both would be readily available in the workplace and the classroom.
Ever wondered how the EXPERTS wash and sanitize their hands?
