Hand Care & Hand Drying: Preventing Illness

One of the simplest yet most important requirements for your premises is the provision of effective hand washing and drying. 

Washing, thoroughly cleaning and drying your hands is simple but vital. Improved adherence to hand hygiene (i.e. hand washing with soap or use of alcohol-based hand rubs) has been shown to terminate outbreaks in health care facilities, reduce transmission of antimicrobial resistant organisms and reduce overall infection rates. Hands should be washed vigorously for 15 to 20 seconds – taking care to wash well between the fingers - and then dried thoroughly, as wet hands encourage bacterial growth.

Reduce the risk of illness

A clean and efficient washroom promotes healthier hand care routines which, in turn minimises the potential for cross contamination and reduces the risk of illness. People are more likely to use clean and hygienic soap dispensers, and Cannon's professionally managed service ensures your refills will never be empty. The standard of your washroom says a lot about your organisation so make sure its positive.

Hand Drying

From large high usage washrooms to singe private facilities, we have a hand drying solution to suit your needs.  We understand that individuals have specific preferences when it comes to drying hands. Many prefer traditional roller towels, others want disposable paper hand towels and some feel more comfortable with automatic hand dryers.  We offer all options – take a look.

Effective hand drying is a vital part of providing effective hand care and minimising cross contamination. Wet or damp hands spread bacteria rapidly. In environments where people can be vulnerable to infection washing and drying hands correctly can literally save lives.
