The primary reason to keep a washroom hygienically clean is to prevent the spread of infection. However, it is also important for another reason; in many respects, people perceive the health and hygiene of a washroom as an accurate reflection of the overall health and hygiene of a facility.

On Saturday 5th May, the WHO (World Health Organization) is calling on health facilities to prevent health care-associated sepsis through hand hygiene and infection prevention and control (IPC) action. Good handwashing practice not only plays a key role in the prevention of sepsis in healthcare, but can also help fight the spread of antibiotic resistance. It is an easy, affordable and effective way to achieve continued health, wellbeing and productivity – in our homes, schools, work places and of course in our hospitals and health facilities.
