In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, hand sanitizer has taken center stage in the workplace.
But where should business owners keep the stuff?
Doc Hygiene is here to help. We’ve compiled a list of five places businesses should install hand sanitizer for easy access:1. Entrances and exits
You don’t want your team or customers to get sick from a single door handle. Research shows that COVID-19 can live on surfaces for up to 24 hours, so be sure to install hand-sanitizing stations at every entrance and exit. This is an essential way to mitigate illness and infection.2. Break and conference rooms
Though masks are effective, you still want to remind your staff to keep their hands clean. Offering hand sanitizer in break and meeting rooms is a great way to ensure hygiene stays top of mind. Compact and portable, you can place our single-use packets right on the table for easy access.
Yes, restrooms feature soap and water—and we all need to wash our hands. Hand sanitizer, however, offers an added layer of protection. For those who don’t spend enough time keeping their hands clean with soap and water, a visible sanitizing station can make all the difference.
4. Front desks or transaction counters
From gas station checkout counters to clinic front desks, hand sanitizer will encourage everyone who comes through your space to clean their hands. This will also bring peace of mind to the people who frequent your space, which is super-important in the current climate.
5. Employee desks
Whether you work from home or onsite, we touch a number of surfaces at our desks: computer keyboards, phone or tablet screens—you name it. To this end, keeping hand sanitizer within reach is paramount. Why not find your favorite solution and make space for it right on your desk?
