Logo of Hand Hygiene at Work website, with tagline: "Evidence-based resources for workers & decision-makers"

Good workplace hand hygiene has benefits for both organisations and their employees. If appropriately promoted and supported, good hand hygiene can lower the risk of workers catching and transmitting infections, it can reduce absence from illness and it can signal a management commitment to employee well-being.

This research-led website considers issues and challenges relating to hand hygiene in the workplace. It is informed by researchers and designers based at the Universities of Sheffield and Leeds, and by research partners from industry and the public sector. It is a constantly developing resource, designed to provide comprehensive information that can facilitate important environment-related decisions:
