All About Hygiene
Tork Easy Cube
Tork Safer Choice
As a hygiene expert, Tork, an Essity brand recognizes that paper towels are the most effective hand-drying solution – and, this is based on preference and science. Did you know:
- End-users prefer paper towels over air dryers: 70% wish more facilities offered paper towels
- Jet air dryers are not as hygienic: can spread up to 10x more germs
- Paper towels offer multi-uses beyond drying hands: use towels to avoid touching common surfaces in restrooms
We also have a new web page to support our Safer Choice campaign – check it out here: https://www.torkusa.com/saferchoice
Remember, as businesses begin to open back up, some regulations/States are banning the use of air dryers in certain segments – this means opportunities for hand towel systems like Tork PeakServe) towel systems.
The past months have changed our everyday life in a way we couldn’t have predicted. Today, there is a stronger focus on hygiene to ensure a healthy and safe environment. First and most important is a good hand hygiene. And for people to be able to do a proper hand wash, you as a facility manager have to make sure that sanitary facilities are user-friendly, accessible and replenished. You also have to consider the number of people in a room, when and how often to clean and disinfect the surfaces and where you should arrange portable stations with sanitizers. This all together to achieve a high hygiene standard.
