SC Johnson Professional Shares Hand Hygiene Tips for Global Handwashing Day

By SC Johnson Professional

SC Johnson Professional® celebrates Global Handwashing Day, which promotes the benefits of practicing good hand hygiene habits. To increase awareness to the public on proper handwashing techniques and understanding the importance of handwashing, SC Johnson Professional shares the following hand hygiene tips.

  1. Follow a Targeted Hygiene Program

Key times to wash your hands include after coughing or sneezing, after using the restroom, before cooking, eating and drinking, after touching common surfaces and especially when sharing common areas with people who are sick. For an easy way to remember when to wash your hands, consider utilizing resources from SC Johnson Professional’s Targeted Hygiene Program.

  1. Learn Proper Hand Hygiene Techniques

If you are skipping out on basic hand hygiene or washing your hands incorrectly, germs may linger. To properly wash your hands, run them under water, then lather with soap and scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds, followed by rinsing the soap off of your hands and drying them with a clean towel or air dry them.

If soap and water are not available, using hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol, like SC Johnson Professional’s InstantFOAM™ Alcohol Hand Sanitizer, is an alternative when hands are not visibly dirty. It’s a good idea to incorporate both hand washing and using hand sanitizer into your hand hygiene practice.

  1. Communicate Hand Hygiene at Your Facility

Promoting frequent handwashing in your facility through videos, posters or newsletters can help encourage a safe environment that reduces the spread of germs. Explore SC Johnson Professional’s Targeted Hygiene Program resources available here.  Another option to communicate that your facility values hand washing includes having hand hygiene supplies in facility restrooms, like hand soap, paper towels and door tissue, always stocked and in good working condition.

SC Johnson Professional supports the mission of Global Handwashing Day by providing hygienic products with the needs of its consumers in mind, as well as continuing to spread awareness of the impact proper handwashing practices has on the community.
