Hand Sanitizer Stations to help fight COVID-19Joseph Costa
Whether we want to admit it or not, Covid-19 isn’t going to disappear any time soon. We must learn to live with it as best we can while working hard to protect those around us. One of the best ways that we can do this is through regular hand sanitization. We can kill the germs on our hands whenever we enter a public space and reduce the risk of infection.
However, not all customers and employees will carry their own personal supply of hand sanitizer on them at all times. That is where businesses and local authorities need to take responsibility and provide the means to via hand sanitizer dispenser stands.
How do these commercial hand sanitizer stations work?
A commercial station for hand sanitization dispenses a small amount of solution on the hands of the user. They can activate the device without touching it by placing their hand under the sensor.This means no contact with the surface of the machine and fewer risks of germ transmission. These dispensers are also compact enough to work in all kinds of spaces. The units are compact and can be mounted on a wall or on one of our stands. It is then the responsibility of the owner to find the perfect location and keep it topped up with hand sanitizer.
Who can benefit from hand sanitizer dispenser stands like this?
The great thing about the size and hygienic properties of these stands is that they work in multiple locations. The systems can act as effective lines of defense for staff, visitors, customers, and more in a range of scenarios. These stations will work in:
- independent stores
- hotel lobbies
and a whole lot more.
Protect your employees from passing around Covid-19 by installing a hand sanitizer station in a
Those that work in offices may not have many people in their department or on their floor, but there could be plenty using the lobby and the elevators. A sanitization station in the lobby, with friendly reminders, should ensure that everyone cleans their hands.
Ensure that customers use a station before browsing the items in your store.
One problem for shop owners is the risk of customers browsing items, contaminating them, and then other people picking up those germs. Either you go through expensive cleaning and rotation systems or you get customers to use a station like this before they enter. It is a small inconvenience for improved safety.
Stop the potential spread of Covid-19 in busy commercial areas like malls and cinemas.
The same is true for any commercial area where large numbers of people mingle in close contact. Masks and social distancing only go so far in malls, cinemas, and other facilities with shared handrails, escalator rails, plates on doors, seating areas, and more. Dot a few stations around the complex to encourage frequent use.
Help guests protect themselves and others before checking into your hotel.
Then there are the hotel guests that may come to a hotel with their close friends and family but then share space and facilities with people from out of town. Contamination in an elevator, the bar, or other common areas could lead to widespread infection. Convenient hand sanitizer dispensers at the entrance help to kill germs before guests even get to check-in.
A well-placed commercial hand sanitizer station is an important part of the fight against Covid-19.
There are many steps that businesses can take to try to minimize the risk of infections while reopening and getting back to some sense of normality. Encouraging people to wear masks where appropriate is a good start, but this is controversial and may not stop them from bringing germs into. Good hygiene practices go a long way, so a sanitizer station in a prominent place will allow more patrons to play their part. Businesses can also go further with additional sanitizer for
employees and deeper cleaning practices.
Whatever your business, the simple design and function of these stations makes them a practical choice. You can’t force people to use them. But the easy-to-use system and location should be enough of a prompt. The more people you prompt, the less likely you are to deal with cases of infections in your business. Take the time to install a station and make a difference.
