Alcohol based Hand Sanitizer
According to the World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), hand sanitizer is one of the best tools available to help prevent the spread of germs. While washing hands with soap and water is the best way to ensure hands are properly washed and rid of germs, it isn’t always a viable option.
Alcohol based Hand Sanitizer on application rapidly inhibits the infectious activities of microbial agents on skin surface. Alcohol-based formulations are always a better choice for sanitation and disinfection in almost all healthcare situations. Hand rubs generally used to decrease infectious pathogens on the hands. Formulations of the alcohol-based type are preferable to hand washing with soap and water in most situations in a healthcare setting. It is generally more effective at killing microorganisms and better tolerated than soap and water. Hand washing should still be carried out if contamination can be seen or following the use of the toilet. Hand Rub alcohol based is suitable for hygienic and surgical rub-in hand disinfection. It is used as a ready-to-use alcohol-based rub-in product – independently of water and wash-basin – to prevent infection in all areas of health care facilities where hygiene is important as well as in home dialysis and when travelling. It is a pioneer in the field of alcohol-based surgical hand disinfection.
With encouraging employees use their hands to type up reports, shake hands with new clients, open doors, and share community spaces, it might be a good idea to put some extra hand hygiene solutions in place for your facility. By placing hand sanitizer in strategic locations throughout the facility, you can encourage employees to improve their hand hygiene and create a healthier indoor environment.
