Hand hygiene

Hand hygiene should be an important part of our daily routine. However, it takes a pandemic to make more people aware of it.

At BlackSatino, we are happy to share our knowledge and tips on this hot topic to help you implement hand hygiene the right way in your business.

What is hand hygiene?

According to the definition of the World Health Organization (WHO), hand hygiene is “one of the most effective actions to reduce the spread of pathogens and prevent infections, including the COVID-19 virus”.
In other words: the best thing you can do to prevent the spread of bacteria and viruses.

You can do it by washing your hands frequently with soap and water and drying them well afterwards.

HYGIENE IN PRIMARY SCHOOLS

Education institutes and trade unions have established strict regulations to ensure safe school attendance. This includes that each class must be equipped with disinfectant hand gel, soap, paper towels and disinfectant sprays.

We help you make hand hygiene in school easy and accessible.

With a specially selected range, you can easily implement the new hygiene guidelines in the classroom and school washrooms.

PROPER HAND DRYING

“Which hand drying method is the safest and most hygienic?”

In every washroom you visit, you will encounter a different method for hand drying. Think of hot air blowers, cotton cloths or paper towels.

Which method is the safest and most hygienic?

Several scientific studies show that paper towels are the most hygienic.

  1. Bacteria remaining on the hands after washing are not blown into the room.
  2. Each paper towel is used only once per user. This way you do not come into contact with the bacteria of the person who dried their hands before you.
  3. Paper towels have an abrasive effect, i.e. remaining bacteria are removed and then disposed of.
  4. The paper towel can also be used to shut off non-sensor water taps. This also prevents you from coming into contact with the bacteria of previous users.
