Failing hand hygiene is responsible for infection transmission at frequent touch-points.
In the NHS, these sites are evaluated and a cleaning regime is created around what is called 'functional risk'. However, if you follow and touch where an infected person has touched before the clean, you or I could unwittingly be spreading infection.
We tell the footfall how to navigate the building: PUSH, PULL, HOLD and PRESS and now with the SAFE range of wraps, pads and buttons sited at these frequent touch-points, we can mitigate the risk of hand-mediated infection transmission. HOW?? The SAFE range is antibacterial and infections will be halted from spreading.
Mitigate the risk of hand-mediated infection transmission
- Cleaning: the wraps, pads and buttons become targets, so cleaning will become even more efficient
- Mental health: Watch yourself how people enter or leave a toilet. Elbows, sleeves, little fingers, thumbs, feet and even the backside is used. People avoid using their hands for fear of hand-mediated infections.
- The greatest saving must be prevention over cure. The cost of absenteeism of staff, visitors and footfall can be avoided
