How To Further Protect Hands on Global Handwashing Day

By Nick Green | 15.10.18

Global Handwashing Day - Globus BlogOctober 15th is Global Handwashing Day and this year the focus is on the links between handwashing and food hygiene.  Awareness is being brought to how handwashing can be a key factor in the prevention of diseases and the Global Handwashing Partnership (GHP) work to promote the benefits of handwashing around the world.

As a hand protection specialist, we look after workers hands every day, protecting them from a wide range of hazards, and we fully support the need to also make sure hands are clean and safe through regular handwashing.

We all know the importance of washing our hands properly, and according to the NHS, we should wash our hands:

  • after using the toilet
  • after handling raw foods like chicken, meat and vegetables
  • before eating or handling ready to eat food
  • after having contact with animals, including pets

When we wash our hands properly, we should be removing dirt and bacteria, stopping them spreading to other people and objects. This is especially important in higher risk areas such as hospitals and other healthcare environments.

To further reduce the risks of cross-contamination in these types of environments, our I-CON Glove System follows British Institute of Cleaning Science (BICSc) approved and adopted colour-coded guidelines.

  • Red for sanitary appliances and washroom areas
  • Yellow for clinical, treatment and isolation areas
  • Green for general food and drink areas
  • Blue for general areas excluding washrooms and clinical areas

In certain professions, handwashing isn’t enough to protect the hands and especially in the cleaning and hygiene sector, workers wear gloves to protect themselves from various chemicals and substances found in contract cleaning. A colour-coded glove range that can provide a high level of hand protection, which is 100% nitrile and available in either single-use or gauntlet, is a great way to increase the levels of protection and decrease the risks of cross-contamination.

We provide a number of marketing materials that can used to promote the I-CON Glove System, including a poster that can be displayed in working environments to ensure that the correct glove is being used for the right task.
