Reducing the Spread of COVID-19 with Hand Wash Station Signage

It’s important to manage the risks of spreading COVID-19 now that public buildings are re-opening. Find out how our hand wash signage can help.

 

Coronavirus

The current COVID-19 pandemic has changed much of our daily lives and continues to be a highly important consideration as we now begin to re-open shops, schools, universities, leisure centres and non-essential healthcare facilities. However, the risks of spreading coronavirus in public areas are still very much present, and we must ensure that the proper infrastructure is in place to minimise the spread of the virus and promote hygiene.

Hand washing stations are a fantastic way to encourage safe hand hygiene practice and reduce the risk of spreading the virus. Many places are implementing these stations as they prepare to re-open, however the effectiveness of hand wash stations will be greatly reduced if they are not implemented in a way which promotes their use or if the facilities themselves are not kept clean.

Promoting hand hygiene facilities

Our hand wash station signage promotes these facilities by providing clear visual indicators and easily readable text to direct people towards using the stations. This helps ensure people don’t pass by without noticing that the facilities are available, as well as reminding those in the building of the importance of hand hygiene. Our signage panelling also includes basic instructions and labels for using these facilities, making it clear and easy for passers-by to identify how to use them. Adding these signage panels helps ensure as many people in the building as possible are making use of these stations in order to take full advantage of their presence.

Making cleaning easier

As well as making sure as many people as possible use your hand wash stations, our signage panelling also helps make the station itself more hygienic. Made from rigid PVCu, these panels do not support the growth of bacteria or mould and provide an easily cleanable surface which can be thoroughly disinfected to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

These panels also prevent scratches and dents to the wall over time. These imperfections make cleaning more difficult and can harbour dangerous bacteria and viruses; however, with our protection products in place, the walls around your hand wash station are shielded from this damage, contributing to a more hygienic overall environment.

Bespoke options available

Our station signage is available as a CNC product for areas of very high traffic, or as a digital print product coming in either standard or bespoke designs. We can manufacture these to include your branding, bespoke text and imagery or to fit your unique requirements for size and shape.

These products are available now – contact us today to discuss your hand wash station signage needs.
