Key Information

Paper endorsed by Cleaning & Hygiene Suppliers Association

All paper hygiene refill products within our paper hygiene and hand care range come with CHSA endorsement, giving our customers full confidence that roll lengths are correct as labelled.

The CHSA represents all the major manufacturers and distributors, from global multinationals and national networks to privately owned independent businesses. All CHSA members adhere to the code of practice and the Manufacturing Standards Accreditation Schemes for soft tissue products, plastic refuse sacks and industrial cotton mops – this has driven up standards and ensures that customers get what they are expecting and paying for.

Using disposable paper towels can reduce the risk of spreading bacteria

Disposable paper towels are an ideal hand drying method because they absorb water quickly and are not touched by multiple users. Paper towels should ideally be kept in a dry area where they are not at risk of becoming damp, which could increase bacteria growth.

Often, when using hot air dryers in food preparation areas, users do not completely dry their hands. Leaving hands damp can promote bacterial growth. Users who become impatient whilst drying their hands with a hot air dryer and use their work garments to finish the task – are also at risk of spreading germs via their clothing.

As part of our paper hygiene range, we provide a variety of paper hand towels and paper centrefeed (with high-quality dispensers) for the swift and efficient task of drying hands, both in front of house and back of house areas.

The importance of washing and drying hands thoroughly

The most basic and important tool in preventing the spread of infection in a catering and hospitality environment is washing your hands. Hand washing is essential before eating, after using the toilet and especially before preparing food.

Although using hand soap is extremely important for proper hand washing, the way that hands are washed will also make a difference. The most important hand washing technique is to thoroughly wash and completely dry both hands. It takes at least 30 seconds to wash hands properly, from when the tap is turned on until hands are completely dry.

In foodservice environments it is important to always follow the recommended hand washing techniques as this will prevent harmful bacteria from being spread onto food.

When access to water and paper towels is unavailable, a hand sanitiser can be used to minimise the risk of spreading infection. As part of our hand care range, we provide PURELL sanitisers that are proven to kill 99.99% of most common germs that maybe harmful. The PURELL Advanced next-generation skin care formulation is clinically proven to help maintain skin health, skin moisture and skin feel.
