By incorporating the gel dispenser into the door handle it ensures that anyone who enters either a low risk or high-risk area (such as food production areas) will use the sanitising hand gel. thus helping to reduce the risk of comtamination entering the area.
There are numerous reasons why the food manufacturing industry is quick to adopt the units. These include:
- Desire to improve Hygiene Standards across the site - Improvements in Low Risk areas will carry across to High Risk areas
