Washing hands is one of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of illness in offices. The World Health Organization advises that the most important action we can take during the COVID-19 pandemic is to wash hands “regularly and thoroughly” to remove any viruses that may be on them.
Rentokil has created free educational material for businesses to help train staff about hygiene. You can download our free poster showing the nine steps for effective handwashing.
