The Truth About Hand Washing and Drying at Work

New independent research has found that the majority of employees do not wash and dry their hands properly at work, despite both washing and drying being important to help reduce the spread of bacteria and viruses, including Covid.

The YouGov research, commissioned by national washroom service provider, Elis, found that 55% of employees say they wash their hands for less than the recommended 20 seconds when they are at work, with 27% washing their hands for ten seconds or less. Only 37% said they wash their hands for 20 seconds or more, with those over 55 (45%) more likely to, compared to other age groups.
