Proper Hand Hygiene is the Single Most Important Thing You Can Do For Your Health and the Health of Your Business
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the single most important thing we can do to prevent getting sick, spreading illness, and reduce absenteeism is to wash our hands. All workplaces, schools, health care facilities, food service establishments, office buildings — every business everywhere should make it as simple as possible for everyone to clean their hands.
Regular hand washing and sanitizing, particularly before and after certain activities, is one of the best ways to remove germs, avoid getting sick, and prevent the spread of germs to others. It's a quick, simple "do-it-yourself" vaccine that can keep us all from getting sick. And when soap and water aren’t available, the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention recommend the use of hand sanitizers as an effective alternative.
By the numbers:
- More than 80% of illnesses are transmitted by hands1
- One hand can infect over half of the staff in an office by lunchtime2
- Each absent employee costs more than $2,600 per year3
- Proper hand care systems can reduce the spread of germs in an office by 74% and reduce absenteeism by 20-50%1
