Deb Canada Offers Hand Washing Reminder Posters Online


Employers can encourage good hand hygiene practice

Waterford, ON Workplaces and public facilities where people interact in close proximity are at a higher risk for the spread of germs. Studies show that for every employee who comes to work sick, up to 18% of their colleagues will become infected as a result.

For many organizations, implementing and maintaining appropriate hand hygiene practices is a daily challenge, because of inconsistent hand hygiene habits across the population. So what can employers do to educate the importance of adopting good hand hygiene practices?

Employers can encourage good hand hygiene practice by providing easy-to-understand employee education and awareness materials such as posters with reminders to keep hands clean.
