Hand Hygiene Tips For Back To School

Hand Hygiene KCSchool season is quickly approaching, and as children return to the classroom, parents and teachers can’t help but worry about the surfaces they are constantly interacting with. According to an infographic from Kimberly-Clark Professional, surfaces that teachers and students touch have 10 times more bacteria per square inch than in any other profession. With so many people coming together in the school setting, it’s easy to see how classrooms can become ‘hot spots’ for germs and bacteria.

Keeping Hands Clean

Keeping hands clean is one of the most important steps to avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others. Many diseases and viruses are spread by not washing hands with soap and clean, running water. Educating and preparing school staff and students about flu prevention is an important step in ensuring that absenteeism and the spread of illnesses is limited. GOJO™ recommends adopting a comprehensive hand hygiene program. With trusted hand hygiene products throughout the school and innovative lesson plans and activities, schools can make wellness an everyday lesson for their students.

Keeping Surfaces Clean

Our Swish Experts explain that the spread of germs and bacteria can also be reduced by cleaning ‘hot spots’ regularly by using multi-purpose cleaners and disinfectants like the Enviro-Solutions® 72/64 hydrogen peroxide program. This program is simple and effective. It allows staff to clean multiple areas and surfaces using a colour-coded, single dispensing solution.
