Skin health and surface hygiene specialist, GOJO Industries-Europe Ltd, supports Global Handwashing Day on 15th October 2020

 

The coronavirus pandemic continues to provide a stark reminder that one of the most effective ways to stop the spread of a virus is also one of the simplest. Hand hygiene must be a priority both now and in the future to help prevent the transmission of germs like Covid-19 and ensure health and wellbeing. That’s why skin and surface hygiene expert, GOJO Industries-Europe, is once again supporting Global Handwashing Day (Thursday 15 October 2020).

This annual, global advocacy day is dedicated to increasing awareness and understanding about the importance of handwashing as an effective and affordable way to prevent diseases and save lives. It is also an opportunity to design, test, and replicate creative ways to encourage people to wash their hands with soap at critical times. This year’s theme, ‘Hand Hygiene for All’, calls for all of society to achieve universal hand hygiene.

Chris Wakefield, Vice President, European Marketing & Product Development, GOJO Industries-Europe Ltd comments: "2020 has seen thorough hand hygiene practice increase phenomenally. It is vital that this healthy attitude to hand washing and sanitising continues, because hand hygiene is one of the most effective ways there is to protect ourselves, and others from becoming ill."

He continues: "Backed by a wealth of scientific expertise, and specialist formulations, we have the technology and experience to help implement effective hand and surface hygiene regimes in a range of different settings. These solutions not only help influence hygienic behaviour, but help build a healthy hand hygiene culture amongst staff, visitors, and customers long-term."
