The Importance of Using Industrial Hand Sanitisers in the Hospitality Sector

Never has hygiene and cleanliness been as important as it is now across all of society, but this is particularly the case in the hospitality sector. With frequent customer interactions, the sector has often been in the spotlight during the COVID-19 pandemic. With rules in place for social distancing and hand hygiene, hospitality venues have needed to respond to keep their venues open. One tool in their armoury has been the use of hand sanitisers which we explore in this article.

What do we mean by the hospitality sector?

The hospitality sector (also sometimes called the “hospitality industry”) refers to a group of service-oriented industries where there is often frequent contact with customers.

Included in this sector are event venues (e.g., weddings and sports), hotels and accommodation, pubs and bars, restaurants, theme parks, etc.

Supply hand sanitiser where soap and water are unavailable or inaccessible

Governments and health organisations have recommended washing with soap and water and where this is not available to use hand sanitiser instead. As hospitality venues need to sanitise customers at the point of entry, access to hand sanitiser is the obvious solution. It is as simple as this if hospitality venues have inadequate sanitising facilities they will be closed down, until suitable solutions are in place.

A range of sanitiser solutions are available including wall-mounted units, spray bottles and free-standing units of various shapes and sizes. Wherever possible it is recommended to use sensor automated dispensers that sense motion and automatically dispense hand sanitiser. This is beneficial as it removes the cross-contamination risk of many people handling the sanitiser unit.

Coler Medical PPE’s advice is not to worry unduly about the consistency of the sanitiser, this can be supplied in foam, gel, liquid, and spray, etc. It is not the consistency that matters, it is whether the sanitiser you choose kills viruses, bacteria, and germs upon contact.

Hassle-free installation

Many consumers believe that installing hand sanitisers is difficult, but this could not be further from the truth. Hand sanitiser station dispensers are easy to buy, are delivered quickly and can be installed in minutes. Most sanitiser stations use instant sanitiser from various sources, but it is always advisable to read the advice of the provider.
