Washing hands

Do You Really Know the Best Way to Wash Your Hands?



Here are some simple steps for washing your hands. Please share this information with your employees and put up one or more of the posters included here. Regular hand washing is the best way to ensure your workforce stays healthy.

  1. Wash your hands in warm water.

  2. Use soap and lather up for about 10 to 15 seconds (antibacterial soap isn't necessary - any soap will do). Make sure you get in between the fingers and under the nails where uninvited germs like to hang out. And don't forget the wrists!

  3. Rinse and dry well with a clean paper towel.

  4. Use the paper towel to turn off the faucet. This will protect you from germs on the faucet.

  5. Use the paper towel to open the door. This will protect you from germs on the door handle.

Encourage your employees to make frequent hand washing a rule, especially:

  • before eating and cooking
  • after using the bathroom
  • after coughing, sneezing or blowing one's nose
  • after being outdoors
