Do you know that high-touch areas of public restrooms can contain more than 1,000 colony-forming units per milliliter of infection-causing bacteria? Yes, and this is alarming issue regarding our health.
Another new study by Michigan State University researchers found that only 5 percent of people who used the bathroom washed their hands long enough to kill the germs that can cause infections. Also, 33 percent didn’t use soap and 10 percent didn’t wash their hands at all.
That's Ewww! Only 5 Percent Wash Hands Correctly.
And that's why Safeguard present its Germ Alarm system.The Safeguard Germ alarm is a loud, attention-grabbing alarm and soap dispenser in one. It is an invention made specially by Safeguard to tackle the issue of germs in public restrooms.
It is triggered once a person leaves a toilet cubicle, and is disarmed once the soap dispenser is pressed.
The Safeguard Germ Alarm was first introduced during Global Handwashing Day in October 2013.
Alarms were initially installed in McDonald’s branches around Metro Manila, schools and offices. It alerted more than 10,000 people to wash their hands after using public toilets.
It is recommended that everyone should wash his/her hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds in order to kill most of the germs.
I believe as a mom that its important to instill the habit of hand-washing among kids so that they can learn proper hygiene from an early age. This will also ensure parents that their children are capable of protecting themselves from germs when in school, or in other places where they may not have their parents around to guide them.
Through the Safeguard Germ Alarm, Safeguard, known to provide 99% germ protection, hopes to enjoin more establishments and schools in its fight against harmful diseases—and in effect, reduce the number of illnesses that could be prevented simply by regular handwashing.
Let's all support the Global Handwashing thru your regular and proper handwashing with safeguard.
