How soap and water are “good for wellbeing and business”

Business gains as well as good health and wellbeing are the huge benefits that regular and effective hand washing can provide, according to a recent report on the European Cleaning Journal (ECJ) website.

The article quotes a report commissioned by Tork – part of Essity – which coincides with Global Handwashing Day which this year takes place on the 15th October.

Three thousand individuals across six countries were consulted in the course of putting together the survey, which brought out some interesting scenarios, including:-

  • “40 per cent of full-time employees wanted hand hygiene to have a higher priority at work
  • “Around 30 per cent claimed their job satisfaction would be greater if they knew that all their colleagues were washing their hands properly.’

Customer more likely to return to restaurants

Interesting, but not surprisingly, the restaurant sector was deemed to be a beneficiary where high profile hand hygiene protocols were in place, with the report concluding that 50% of those surveyed “would be more willing to return to a restaurant where the staff had clear hand washing routines in place.”

About Global Handwashing Day

According to its website, “Global Handwashing Day is an opportunity to design, test, and replicate creative ways to encourage people to wash their hands with soap at critical times.”

The article quotes the secretariat director of the Global Handwashing Partnership Carolyn Moore as emphasising the importance and purpose of Global Handwashing Day.

“Global Handwashing Day is an important occasion to make sure we are all washing our hands with soap at critical times and encouraging others to do likewise.”
