Hand Hygiene in the Workplace

It is estimated that communicable diseases contribute to millions of days of lost work. These lost days add up to lost productivity, increased healthcare costs, and can even affect office morale and employee cooperation. Regular offices spaces and academic facilities are hot beds for germs and bacteria. Spreading this bacterium can be as easy as pushing a button on a copy machine or shaking someone’s hand.

Simple hand hygiene measures can greatly benefit the overall health of a workplace. The CDC provides some basic and very important guidelines to hand washing. They also provide some interesting facts regarding hand hygiene.

  • It is estimated that washing hands with soap and water could reduce diarrheal disease-associated deaths by up to 50%.

  • Researchers in London estimate that if everyone routinely washed their hands, a million deaths a year could be prevented.

  • Contaminated hands spread a large percentage of foodborne disease outbreaks. Appropriate hand washing practices can reduce the risk of foodborne illness and other infections.

  • Hand washing can reduce the risk of respiratory infections by 16%.

  • The use of an alcohol gel hand sanitizer in the classroom provided an overall reduction in absenteeism due to infection by 19.8% among 16 elementary schools and 6,000 students.

As you can see, hand hygiene is a basic part of maintaining a healthy workplace. Along with cleaning services, ProCleaners can provide guidance on how to institute such workplace health programs. If you want a healthier and more productive workplace, please contact us today.
