Disease Prevention: Hand Washing

Many illnesses start when hands are contaminated with bacteria and viruses. One of the best ways to prevent many common and life-threatening diseases is through regular handwashing with soap.

How do I wash my hands properly?

Step-By-Step Process For Effective Handwashing

Hand Hygiene - Wet hands with running water

Step 1: Wet hands with warm running water

Sensor taps provide the best solution to hygiene as your hands do not need to come into contact with the tap. This is particularly important in shared bathrooms, where users are exposed to germs from other users. The DEM ensures instant warm water without energy waste, and it delivers water at a maximum of 50°C.
