Hand hygiene in new realities. Things to Consider for Commercial Buildings
Due to the coronavirus epidemic, almost everyone is already aware of the hand hygiene rules to prevent the spread of the virus. Today, an important task for commercial buildings is to provide people entering the building with the necessary conditions to maintain this hygiene.
Disinfectants at the entrance and exit and disposable gloves, which have already become the norm, should be in a conspicuous place. Ideally, special hand sanitizing systems can be installed. Also, sanitizers need to be placed in common areas, halls, toilets, kitchens, meeting rooms, food courts, fitting rooms, etc.
Special attention should be paid to toilets. Non-contact feeding systems for toilet paper, paper towels, soap, and automatic faucets and dryers are a significant bonus. In addition, it also saves consumables, since their supply is strictly metered.
If the flow of people is high enough, then it is worth considering the possibility of installing several dispensers for disinfection in the entrance groups to prevent crowding.
When cleaning premises, disinfection of door handles, railings, escalator handrails, switches and other places that are often touched by hands is an important component.
Due to the increasing number of cases of COVID-19, SHEN reminds that hand disinfection is an important component in the fight against the spread of the virus, and frequent disinfection and cleaning of the building is the main method to minimize the risk of infection.
