Some say that ‘cleanliness is next to Godliness,’ but the reason that handwashing stations are essential is much more down to earth than that. The real purpose for having these stations at your workplace or scattered throughout your event location is grounded in basic hygiene.
Heath science, and basic common sense, tell us that germs and viruses can live on surfaces. We touch those surfaces and then touch other things, such as our food and drinks. Contaminants can easily be transferred with this contact, but there is a simple way to prevent that and protect yourself. Wash your hands and eliminate the risk of these germs spreading and making you sick.
If these stations are available, they give patrons at your event or workers at the job site a place to clean up they may not have had otherwise. Companies that offer bathroom rentals meet this need with porta-potties and portable handwashing units that are fully stocked and clean.
