To celebrate (yes, we celebrate these things at Initial) Global Handwashing day, we’ve put together the 9 steps of proper hand washing.
But first, why does hand washing require 9 steps? You just wash your hands and go, right? Oh, how wrong…
Not washing your hands properly, or ad often as you should, is the biggest cause of office illness. It is estimated a desk phone has around 25,127 microbes per sq. inch, keyboards 3,295 and mice 1,676, so you might not be surprised to find out that 60% of time-off-work illnesses are contracted from dirty office equipment.
Think about that the next time you use the printer.
The solution? Wash your hands properly and every time you use the bathroom!
