Safety signs manufacturer and safety products supplier, Spectrum Industrial has launched a campaign ‘Let’s Wash Our Hands Of It’ to help raise awareness of the number of germs lurking in the workplace and have published an infographic with key facts and stats, which demonstrates the growing importance of workplace hygiene.
According to research published it is a fact that people can spread cold and flu in the workplace by as much as 40 per cent and during 2018/19 it cost the economy £2.9bn.
The cold and flu season has traditionally cost employers around £570 and 5.6 days lost per employee/per year, however with the additional concern of COVID-19 this year, it’s even more important that businesses ensure they have measures in place to help reduce the spread of viruses amongst staff, visitors and customers this winter.
With approximately 80 per cent of common infections transmitted by touch, one of the best ways to help combat this is with hygiene reminder signage.
From handwashing reminders, cleaning surfaces and equipment to wearing of PPE, these reminder signs have been proven to increase the frequency and length of handwashing in particular.
Spectrum Industrial has been manufacturing health and safety signs for over 25 years as well as recently introducing hand sanitising stations to their range. Inhouse manufacturing facility also enables them to provide custom designs or simply add your logo.
