Kimberly-Clark Professional Champions Scott®
Clean Workplaces to Promote Hand Hygiene on
Global Handwashing Day 2018
T
his 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
12
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.
