EDUCATION HYGIENE SERVICES
Hygiene experts have said that school toilets in the UK must be improved. If they do not, we could see a further rise in the number of children and staff absent because of illness through the ever more increasing spread of germs and viruses.
School classroom sizes have noticeably increased over the years, schools have more children, more staff, all of which adds to the need for better hygiene control. Educating children, young adults and staff on the importance of basic hygiene practices is an essential part of their education and their future lives.
Environments across the board pose high threats of cross-contamination, and educational environments rank high on this list. Due to the number of people who are on-site, schools, colleges and universities are a breeding ground for bacteria and viruses. Sustaining clean hygiene in schools can prove a difficult task but studies have shown that cleanliness has a significant impact on the overall health, happiness and performance of children, staff and visitors.
The simple act of hand washing can reduce the risk of stomach bugs by as much as 47%. Closing the lid on toilets also have a significant effect of reducing infectious diseases. The installation of soap and hand sanitisers promotes healthy hygienic living.
With most school budgets, seemingly always at breaking point, and as many as 72% of school leaders saying their budgets will be ‘unsustainable’ by 2019, the education sector needs to be doing everything it can to make the money go further.
