Coronavirus pandemic has changed the way we work — forever.
The World Health Organisation has stated that proper hand sanitization and wearing masks go a long way in preventing the pandemic.
Also, considering around 80% of any infections spread by hands, the World Health Organization and the CDC have recommended using hand sanitizers is one of the best tools available to avoid getting sick and spreading germs. Though washing your hands with soap and water is the best option, it isn’t convenient at the workplace.
Most workers come to work even if they’re ill because of the increasing workload and stress, so it’s best to make sure that your employees aren’t more vulnerable to falling ill at work. An NCBI research study pointed to how proper hand sanitization resulted in 40% less respiratory illness amongst the workers.
Installing an automatic hand sanitizer dispenser can be a game-changer in the workplace. An automatic hand sanitizer is a device that only dispenses a controlled amount of hand sanitizer every time.
Here’s why having an automatic hand sanitizer in office spaces is a must:
It is a contactless dispenser
An automatic hand sanitizer dispenser has a built-in infrared smart sensor that will ensure automatic dispensing when it senses a hand below the dispenser. It works on the same principles as the automatic hand dryers in hotel bathrooms.
It’s more hygienic and prevents cross-infection
An automatic hand sanitizer’s most significant advantage is that it is contactless, which means that there’s less chance of any infection spreading from one person to another if many people use the hand sanitizer.
This is more hygienic in a workplace as many people will use the hand sanitizer at once, and since it is automatic, there will be virtually no chance of cross-infection.
It’s more sturdy and durable
A contactless sanitizer dispenser machine is sturdier and more durable. Since it’s usually mounted on a wall and nobody touches it, it usually will last for a long time.
It dispenses a standard quantity
The best part about an automatic hand sanitizer is that it will dispense the perfect amount of solution, which is enough to wipe both your hands.
It is more convenient for employees
An automatic hand sanitizer is more comfortable for employees to access than a one with a foot-operated mechanism, which might get stuck and need repairing if many people use it. And an automatic hand sanitizer is more convenient for employees than each employee bringing their own hand sanitizer bottles every day to work.
It doesn’t require a lot of maintenance
The automatic dispenser requires less maintenance since it has a smart sensor that only reacts when you put your hand under the nozzle. Because of this mechanism, it has minimum wastage and doesn’t require regular maintenance.
It helps your employees feel less stressed about their health
All your employees might be constantly worried about their health and might be taking a lot of precautions to shield themselves from getting any potential infections. Having automatic hand sanitizers at work will make them feel a little less stressed.
The advantages of having an automatic hand sanitizer at work are innumerable. Keeping the workplace clean and healthy is essential for all employees and even for your company’s productivity.
