The best touch-free hand sanitiser machines
Because of the current Coronavirus pandemic, the focus has moved towards the best way of keeping hands clean. The washing of hands or the use of hand sanitiser stations has become big news in the media.
Failure to keep hands hygienically clean is one of the biggest ways of spreading infection via the virus.
However, whether you are washing your hands, using the correct method, with soap and hot water, or using touch-free hand sanitiser machines, it’s essential to use the right equipment.
As far as hand sanitisers are concerned, the best versions are touch-free. Hand-sanitisers that require touch to operate the dispenser are not recommended, as you have to physically press the pump with your hands, potentially resulting in hands laden with bacteria.
But how does this cross-contamination occur? After all, you will clean your hands after touching the pump. But what about those users that don’t clean their hands correctly?
This is where hands-free dispensers win out. They provide very high levels of hygiene, simply because the user’s hands do not need to come into contact with the unit.
If you have 100s of people using the machine over the course of a day, imagine the damage that a hand operated dispenser could do.
Once infection occurs, staff have to isolate with many of them potentially becoming ill.
No business can afford to put the health of their employees at risk. Simultaneously, businesses may find themselves having to close or struggle to work with reduced staffing. Neither are good scenarios.
Touch-free hand sanitiser machines can be placed in a range of locations, providing hand-washing or sanitising facilities where needed.
By using the touch-free version and having dispensers placed across a multitude of spaces, fighting the Coronavirus becomes much easier.
Choosing a suitable hand sanitiser
As for which hands-free hand sanitiser you choose, this will depend upon your requirements, such as how many people will use it and the capacity of the tank.
