HAND HYGIENE IS HERE TO STAY
Ensuring good hand hygiene for all staff, guests and residents is now critical in every part of the accommodation sector, so we've pulled together our five top tips to help you deliver five-star hygiene.
With tighter restrictions now being reintroduced across the four nations of the UK, good hand hygiene is an essential part of keeping everyone safe and healthy. To ensure your business responds appropriately, we’ve put together these five guidelines to help you keep your business safe and open.
Our top tips
Not all hand sanitisers are created equal. Many on the market today are not even effective when it comes to tackling a virus such as Covid-19. So if you’re not buying medical grade sanitiser, then you could be putting your guests and staff at risk.
Our hand sanitiser is 80% alcohol and EN14476 certified – which means that it is virucidal – and certified as medical grade to reduce risk and help make your business as compliant as possible. If you pay more or even the same for clearly less effective hand sanitisers, then you are inviting unnecessary risk into your business.
Hand sanitiser as an automatic weapon? Not literally – but the use of automatic dispensers is a key weapon in the battle to contain Covid-19. Many infection prevention professionals believe that touchless technology is having an impact on reducing the possibility of hand contamination. Feedback from customers also typically shows that touchless dispensers get more use than pump based ones, with the associated benefit that if touchless dispensers increase usage, this also means an increase in compliance and a decrease in bacteria spread. Last but not least, using a liquid rub, rather than gel or foam, means your dispensers will release a fine mist that ensures excellent hand coverage, is very quick drying and non sticky.
Our automatic dispensers are now provided free with 12, 24 and 36 month managed services contracts. They are stylish, high quality and deliver a better hand sanitiser experience – to help create an excellent first impression for your guests and visitors. With no ongoing rental costs for our stands – you’ll own your ClearWater stand outright as part of your managed contract – and no ongoing maintenance costs – if it breaks we’ll fix it – you can ensure that you reinforce the highest quality of care in all key areas of your accommodation.
Location, location, location. This is such a critical point it is worth repeating. Simply put, if you don’t locate your hand sanitising dispensers or stations in the right place, then fewer people will use them. And that kind of defeats the point.
We can advice you on the best places – most notably reception areas, dining areas, washrooms, kitchens and common rooms. Most importantly, we can help ensure you have an extra layer of front of house protection and compliance. We achieve this by combining high quality hand sanitiser alongside the advanced technology that can be integrated into our stands to deliver temperature checks and Track & Trace functionality, we can provide additional protection and reassurance at key locations throughout your business.
You never want to run dry. For obvious reasons demand for hand sanitiser remains very high. And with the reputation of your accommodation business at stake, you don’t want to have to turn to lower quality options or unreliable supplies from out of the UK.
Our flexible rolling contracts can ensure that you have guaranteed supply right here in the UK. Our business has long-term stock and can ensure access to fresh supplies for years to come. And, what’s more, with our managed services you don’t need to worry about running out of hand sanitiser, as a regular supply will be delivered on a monthly basis.
These are troubled times – and undoubtedly there’s hand sanitiser saints and sinners out there! Whoever you buy from make sure you see their certification, which ensures they are registered producers, and consider their business model – are they here for the long term – or just a pop-up business in it for the short term.
Our business was specifically set up to address Covid-19 rather than re-purposed to address an opportunity. Our range of hand sanitiser products are fully formulated and created here in the UK, and we continue to make them available at a fair, honest and ethical price. What’s more, our units are easily and quickly refilled making them more environmentally friendly, and we also have support and after care built into all our managed services solutions.
