The Purehold PRO hygienic door handle was initially trialled at Unilever Norwich in 2013, and was quickly followed by Unilever Purfleet and Unilever Burton-on-Trent. The handles offer an additional barrier to protect their sites and staff in their constant endevours to meet the highest possible standards.
The human hand is one of the primary causes for the spread of contaminants within the food industry. 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 contaminants 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,
- Culture Change - Reminds staff that hygiene is of the utmost importance at all times and that there are no excuses for complacency,
- Desire to stay ahead of the competition - Demonstrating to customers the committed to excellence through innovation and protecting the end product,
- Strong business case - i.e. Customer Satisfaction, Significant CFU Improvements, Protect the product .
