FOOD PROCESSING & MANUFACTURING
Production entrance doors are often the final barrier to prevent pathogens entering food processing / high-risk areas. These touch points are used by thousands of staff each year so it’s no wonder that cross-contamination poses such a serious risk. The Purehold PRO is able to minimise the risk of contamination by ensuring that each person that enters through the door has sanitised hands.
HEALTHCARE & INFECTION PREVENTION (Hospitals / Care Homes / NHS / GP / Dental)
The Purehold PRO was designed with NHS Infection Prevention Specialists to be used in conjunction with existing hand hygiene policies (such as WHO 5 moments). Now installed in many NHS trusts, private hospitals and care homes across the UK, the Purehold PRO can help to reduce the spread of Norovirus, MRSA, Flu and other viruses. Pathogens can spread easily and rapidly from ward to ward due as a consequence of poor hand hygiene and cross-contamination from surfaces such as door handles.
PHARMACEUTICAL & CLEANROOMS
Contamination can be a major problem for pharmaceutical companies and represent a costly risk to brand reputation. The financial implications of contamination are equally as severe. Despite advances in technology, hygiene controls and procedures; unwanted micro-organisms can enter these controlled environments on the hands of staff. Independently tested, the Purehold PRO was proven to be 85% cleaner than a standard door handle, and is a simple yet effective measure to help combat these issues.
TOILETS & WASHROOMS
80% of infectious diseases are spread by touch, and yet studies show that 30% of the public do NOT wash their hands after going to the toilet. Dirty hands can routinely contaminate toilet door handles and vice versa, spreading germs quickly, and since everyone must exit through the same public door; cleanliness of the toilet door handle is a key concern. This is an ongoing issue in both public and staff toilets in all industries, including hospitals, office buildings, shopping centres, factories, food processing facilities, supermarkets... the list is endless!
Schools and Colleges can be perfect breeding grounds for harmful pathogens as they contain a large number of people together in close-quarters such as classrooms and playgrounds. In schools with younger pupils especially, the close-contact nature of how children interact makes the spread of germs inevitable. As well as leading to pupil absence which can be damaging to a child's education, an outbreak of infection can also force teachers to take time off which can cost schools and colleges financially and also disrupt the learning of pupils.
Marginal Gains from hand hygiene?
A top premiership club has recently installed Hygienic Door Handles into its training ground facility as part of a suite of measures to improve marginal gains.
