We recognise that a high standard of hygiene is vital for staff and customer wellbeing, and we have the flexibility and experience to meet all your needs.
Germs - the facts
Our hands are the most significant agents in the transmission of infections. This is especially true when bacteria are involved but virus infections are commonly hand -spread.
Germs cost you money
Germs could make your staff ill. Do you want staff to need time off?
Germs spread in your washrooms could cause your staff to require time off and could even lead to legal action if the resulting illnesses are severe and can be directly linked back to your negligence.
Germs that can grow in the washroom
Rotavirus - Rotaviruses are transferred from hand to hand and live on hard work surfaces in your washroom and cause fever, vomiting and diarrhoea
Faecal Coliforms - Coliforms are found in faeces, these contain germs that thrive in an unclean washroom.
Some of these can be very serious such as:
Streptococcus which can cause sore throats & blood poisoning
Parasites - Parasites such as protozoa and parasitic worms can also be transferred in the washroom by hand contact. Parasitic worms grow in the gut and can cause liver, lung, brain & lymphatic damage.
Hand washing is the single most effective action to reduce the spread of bacteria
While hand washing alone cannot guarantee to kill every kind of germ or virus, it is the first line of defence against their spread and used in conjunction with stringent sanitation, can greatly reduce the risks.

ITS Hygiene can remove the inconvenience of replenishing soap dispensers. Your company can choose from an extensive range of hand cleaning systems, designed to suit your individual requirements.
