Information Sharing: The Benefits of Hand Washing The most effective thing you can do to protect yourself against a number of infectious diseases is to wash your hands correctly with soap and/ or an alcohol-based hand rub. Your hand may appear to be clean, however hands can pick up micro-organisms (germs) in a number of ways. Minimize your risk by: Washing your hands frequently especially after: coughing or sneezing (when you cough or sneeze use a tissue or raise your arm up and aim for your sleeve) never cough or sneeze in your hands, before and after eating, before and after preparing food, after petting an animal and after using the bathroom. Keep surfaces clean and sanitized in your home or office, i.e. doorknobs, light switches, telephones, and keyboards. Teach your children how to hand wash properly and always supervise very young children. Please contact Laura-Lee Kelly at 905-768-0141 ext. 241 if you would like more information on Hand Hygiene.
