There are vast differences between washing your hands and cleaning them with hand sanitiser. Help your visitors practice effective hand hygiene with our free instructional poster.
Washing our hands is one of the most effective ways to remove germs, but there are many situations where soap and water are not available, or not practical. In these instances, hand sanitiser gel is a practical alternative. Though not a replacement for traditional hand washing, the use of hand sanitiser allows people to maintain hand hygiene until they are in a position to wash their hands again.
Our guide to hand cleaning with sanitiser covers the basics with easy to understand instructions and diagrams to ensure visitors practice effective hand hygiene in your establishment.

The Importance of Effective Sanitiser Hand Hygiene
Regular and thorough hand hygiene practices are critical in preventing the spread of germs and bacteria and keeping you and those around you healthy and safe. Without an understanding of how to clean effectively with hand sanitiser, this could lead to a risk of infection transmission.
Help your visitors practice effective hand hygiene with our free instructional poster and remind them to use hand sanitiser wherever it is available.
Throughout the day employees and visitors are exposed to germs, viruses and bacteria through contact with surfaces, often without realising they have touched anything. For example, opening doors, making coffee, answering telephones and many more daily tasks happen so routinely and automatically that we are unaware of the health risks they may bring.
By encouraging the use of hand sanitiser where soap and water are not available, you help to promote a healthy work environment and reduce the risk of illness to your staff and those around them.
