Every year, we celebrate Global Handwashing Day at Time Timer.
Each year brings something new to the table, as you can see in our previous blogs on the topic. For example, last year’s (2021) Global Handwashing Day focused on the theme of “Our Future Is at Hand — Let’s Move Forward Together”, a timely theme given the pandemic circumstances.
Global Handwashing Day 2022 has another theme on offer, which has already been featured in our title: Unite for Universal Hand Hygiene. One of the priorities related to this theme is introducing proper hand washing techniques in many areas, from schools to healthcare facilities, workplaces, and beyond. Basically, any public setting where there is a chance of many people meeting together—and possibly spreading germs.
Practicing good hand hygiene in institutional and public settings can be a key to keeping the population healthy, whether there is a pandemic going on or not.
Proper handwashing is unlikely to resemble what most people get in the habit of doing before sitting down for a meal or after using the bathroom.
It involves more than just a splash of water, or squirting soap on your hand and then furiously scrubbing for a little bit.
The process, as outlined by the CDC, ought to take 30 seconds.
Teaching this method to schoolchildren, employees, and in any public setting can be instrumental in creating healthier environments for all.
How the Time Timer WASH Can Help People Unite for Universal Hand Hygiene
Our Time Timer WASH is specially-designed to offer instructions for proper hand washing for users of all age groups and abilities.
With a hands-free start (simply wave your hand in front of the timer), users will have an easy visual countdown to keep track of their hand washing. This hands-free feature makes it ideal for public settings, so people will not get their pre-wash germs onto it.
This can not only be good for introducing proper hand washing technique to kids in school, but it can also make it easier for adults as well, who will not have to engage in a mental count as they wash.
Our Time Timer WASH models come in a few forms. Our complete package includes the Time Timer WASH and a 10oz soap dispenser, which can save you the worry of having to install a soap dispenser.
However, if you already have a soap dispenser, you can spring for the Time Timer WASH timer, which is smaller and more portable.
No matter what Time Timer WASH you go for, you are sure to see an improvement in hand washing habits in your school, workplace, or wherever you install it!
