The last 18 months has seen significant change in the workplace, from ever-evolving safety measures to higher expectations from your staff when it comes to hygiene provision.  

As we head into the winter cold and flu season and with pressures already on the supply chain, keeping your team safe and healthy by providing more visible, better quality hand hygiene solutions is a must.

Rubbermaid Commercial Products – a leading manufacturer in hand hygiene solutions – give their top tips for taking control in your facility this winter:

Whether it’s free-standing, wall-mounted or pump top, placing the right solution in the right place will help encourage use, build confidence and improve safety.

Choose performance day in, day out

More frequent use of hand hygiene products may be good for stopping the spread of germs, but it also puts pressure on your solutions and adds to your costs. Choosing durable products can withstand frequent use over a long period of time is essential: you know they’ll perform day in day out and you won’t need to pay to replace them as often.
