H-Wash Handwash Stations

We needed to make the workplace safe after the coronavirus outbreak. We wanted to give the workforce plenty of opportunity, out on site, to wash their hands, kill germs and protect themselves.

The H-Wash hand wash system was the ideal solution as it is a portable self-contained unit which requires no plumbing or electrics and can be installed anywhere on site. It allows operatives to wash their hands with soap and water using a foot pump system. It also has a paper towel dispenser and a bin contained within the unit to allow operatives to dry their hands. The unit encloses a grey water collection drum which is emptied regularly. The H-Wash hand wash system is lightweight and transportable but is also robust enough to withstand the site environment.

The H-Wash handwash system has been very successful out on site. The logistics contractor has been trained to replenish stocks and clean the units. Operatives are informed of the units in induction and are told how to use them. All employees are able to wash and dry their hands in easily accessible locations from their workplace.

This example of best practice is just one way that projects can work to tackle the virus and reduce the spread. For full guidance and the latest Government advice read the Construction Leadership Council’s Site Operating Procedures.
