Kimberly-Clark Professional champions Scott® Clean workplaces to promote hand hygiene on Global Handwashing Day 2018

08 October 2018

This year Global Handwashing Day takes place on 15 October and Kimberly-Clark Professional is embracing the annual event’s theme ‘Clean Hands – a recipe for health’ by supporting Facilities Managers with a range of tools to help them champion hand hygiene, health and wellbeing in the workplace in relation to snacking and eating.

“With Global Handwashing Day 2018 linking hand hygiene and food hygiene, we wanted to focus on how employees often eat at their desks or in meetings, using their hands and fingers.” says Caroline Stanley, UK Head of Marketing at Kimberly-Clark Professional.

“With increased ‘hot-desking’ and shared meeting spaces, proper hand washing and drying before and after food becomes even more important to help prevent the spread of nasty bacteria and illnesses.”

Kimberly-Clark Professional has created a special Scott® Clean toolkit for Global Handwashing Day which will provide Facilities Managers with everything they need to engage their guests and employees on 15 October to enhance hand hygiene and maximise infection prevention.

The Scott® Clean toolkit includes hand hygiene posters and washroom mirror stickers to display in and around the workplace.

Plus, to encourage maximum employee participation on the day itself, there are healthy snacks and hand hygiene postcards to hand out, plus a selfie photo frame and Global Handwashing Day themed novelties.

There’s also a Scott® Clean eToolkit available for Facilities Managers who want to spread the word via their company’s online channels like email, social media, website, intranet and digital signage.

Stanley continues: “We’ve designed the Scott® Clean toolkit to help Facilities Managers and employers show they really care for their guests and employees by promoting Scott® single use paper hand towels and foam hand cleansers in the washroom as an essential step before every meal or snack.

"We want this initiative to celebrate Facilities Managers for choosing Scott® and to positively impact employee health and wellbeing in the workplace."
