Dr. Will and Henry the Hand have crafted some strategies that are both effective and easy to implement in your office!
We are trying to accelerate the adoption of the Health Shield (Face shield) offers for your personal safety, comfort and protection from others. Barriers have been proven to be an effective method for preventing transmission of fluids from penetrating any orifice that you are trying to protect. In this case it is both fingers and droplets/aerosols we are protecting from the mucous membranes of your eyes, nose or mouth (T Zone).
With our Health Shield you will experience ease of use, efficacy of communication, breathing and full facial expressions that are important to our social interactions while maintaining personal safety in any environment. The highly virulent and turbulent environment of the hospitals require an additional N-95 mask because so much airflow and density of organisms on ALL surfaces including clothing and hair.
Many people do not wear a mask correctly and have a tendency to adjust it and contaminate their mucous membranes inadvertently. We must be more intentional about re-training this unconscious behavior to help you and others to prevent self-inoculating their facial mucous membranes with Coronavirus or many other viruses that cause respiratory or gastro-intestinal infections. If we normalize this technique of wearing a face shield when Coronavirus or other infectious diseases are in our community it will significantly improve the individual’s health.
We have T Zone Awareness Posters (Do Not touch your eyes, nose, or mouth) to help those nail-biters, nose-pickers, and eye-rubbers “break the habit” and stay healthy! The poster depicts the main portal of entry into our bodies for
ALL respiratory infections and how to PREVENT self-inoculation of the germs that might be lingering on the surfaces in YOUR work environment!
We have Handwashing reminders for your bathrooms that will catch the eye of your employees and remind them to wash their hands after using the toilet (not everyone does!).
In order to be successful, it is important that their family is practicing good hand hygiene behavior. So, we have created promotional packets for employees to take home to teach their family how to reduce the risk of them contracting an illness and maintain better health! These promotional packets display the 4 Principles of Hand Awareness and cues in visual display how to stay healthy, a few stickers and bookmarks and other products to help teach family how to stay healthy. Hand out a packet for each employee to take home and share with their family or household members.
* * Chuck Gerba’s, PhD, research demonstrates that within 24 hours of a respiratory infection being introduced into the work environment, 90% of the commonly touched surfaces are contaminated with those germs.* *
With your employees’ compliance, this program is guaranteed to REDUCE ABSENTEEISM in your office. By stressing the significance of the T Zone and changing their unconscious behavior, they will avoid giving themselves any infection, Coronavirus or the Flu and how to keep their families healthy! A healthy workplace is a more productive workplace!
