There's a difference between making everybody so terrified they won't touch a door handle or shake hands, and taking sensible precautions when they're needed. And those wise safety measures are obviously even more important just now to help keep a Swine Flu pandemic under as much control as we can.
We know that most infectious diseases and nasty bacteria mainly get around from hand to hand – in fact that's how 80% of them spread. So of course, the answer is to keep hands as clean as possible. But let's keep a sense of proportion.
Hygenica Solutions' clever ways of keeping hands cleaner and people healthier do the job simply, conveniently and cost-effectively.
The list of harmful bacteria and viruses which they help protect against is quite long. Among them are – Influenza A virus subtype H1N1 (Swine flu), MRSA, E-coli, Salmonella, Pseudomonas, Staph, HIV, Hepatitis A&C, Norwalk virus, SARS, Noro virus and all common cold and flu-causing bacteria and viruses.
So our sanitisers help people be germ-free. They reduce absenteeism, helping to keep employees well and at work, not off sick. They're easy to use in all the obvious situations – after touching surfaces and things in public use, before handling food, in medical environments, looking after babies and children and many others – we all know where and when.
It's been proved that consistent hand hygiene means better health and less infectious illness. The more transient germs, bacterial viruses and fungi you can kill, the fewer nasty outbreaks you'll have. Organisations with customers have found that business can increase up to 50% after installing sanitisers – it's good for their image, people feel cared for and safer.
So the question is not so much 'Why sanitise?' but more 'Why wouldn't you?'...
