Justrite’s Portable Hand-Washing Station Reduces Spread of Covid-19
Justrite, a global leader in industrial safety products, announces the launch of a portable hand-washing station, a mobile, self-contained hand cleansing system that enables employees to effectively wash hands in any location.
Justrite Safety Group president and CEO Mark McElhinny said the portable hand-washing station is a practical tool against the spread of germs and viruses in the workplace.
McElhinny said: “As Covid-19 infections numbers continue to rise in various parts of the country, businesses need an easy but effective method to ensure the safety of their workforce. Our portable hand-washing station is designed to provide an all-in-one hand cleansing solution for worksites without the need for plumbing.”
The portable hand-washing station features a 30-gallon tank that supports approximately 150 hand washes.
The self-contained hand washing station provides a reliable way for personnel to ensure they can practice safe personal hygiene in any location. The station features hands-free, foot activation for ease of use and to help reduce cross-contamination.
It also features fillable soap and paper towel dispensers, making it an all-in-one hand sanitisation station that can be placed anywhere, indoors or out. Without having to leave the work floor, an employee can wash their hands often between tasks in full confidence of their safety.
The portable hand-washing station is essential since handwashing is one of the best ways to protect yourself and your family from getting sick, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Germs spread easily from people or surfaces. This is especially important to take into consideration if employees come into contact with the surfaces that may be frequently touched by other people. Hand washing is the most effective way to reduce the spreading of germs, especially after blowing the nose, coughing or sneezing. The CDC said that frequent handwashing can keep you healthy and helps prevent the spread of respiratory and diarrheal infections from one person to the next.
Frequent handwashing is still the most effective method to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
McElhinny said: “As businesses continue open and to get back to full capacity in the midst of the pandemic, it’s essential to protect employees and their families from the invisible threats. The portable hand-washing station makes it easy for any business to give its employees peace of mind. With convenient access to hand washing, employees can maintain a high level of personal hygiene all day and help limit the spread of germs and viruses.”
