Children’s Hand Washing in conjunction with the Evans Evolve Dispenser
Hello, my name is Edward Evans Hello, my name is Emily Evans We are here to teach you about good hand hygiene. Meet Edward & Emily
Why should we wash our hands? Did you know that the most important thing you can do to avoid being ill is to wash you hands? Every time you touch something with your hands, you can pick up germs (bacteria, viruses & fungi) from it. Even if your hands look clean, they may not be because germs and bacteria are tiny and invisible to the naked eye. The next time you touch something you could then pass on these germs to someone else. These germs and bacteria can make your poorly, for example giving you coughs and colds or upset tummies. So to stop germs spreading, you need to WASH YOUR HANDS
Meet The Germs Edward & Emily would like to introduce you to some of the germs that you could have on your hands and explain how they could make you ill. Colin Cold (Common cold ) Swine Flu Sid (Swine Flu) These two viruses are passed from person to person by coughing and sneezing. You can also get these by touching something that an infected person has touched.
Meet The Germs Mr SA (M.R.S.A.) Nora Virus (Norovirus – Winter vomiting virus ) This is a very contagious virus and is passed from person to person on dirty hands after going to the toilet or touching something that an infected person has touched. This virus causes sickness and diarrhoea. This is a bacteria found on the skin and in noses. It causes infections in people who are very young (babies), very old or already ill.
Meet The Germs Carla Bacter (Campylobacter) Swine Flu Sid (Swine Flu) These two bacteria are found in tummies and are passed from person to person on dirty hands after going to the toilet. These bacteria cause sickness and diarrhoea.
When should we wash our hands? After using the toilet Before and after eating After playing outside or gardening If your hands look dirty It is impossible to avoid germs, viruses and bacteria in your daily life but you can reduce the chance of infecting yourself and others by knowing when hands should be washed. It is important to wash your hands If you are suffering from a cough or a cold, you will need to wash your hands more often. Even if your hands appear to be clean they may still carry germs capable of causing illness.
Did you know! Damp hands spread 1,000 time more germs than dry hands. When you cough germs can travel about 3 metres if you do not put your hand or a handkerchief over your nose or mouth The highest recorded speed of a sneeze was 102 miles per hour Bacteria double their number every 20 minutes Almost one million bacteria can be created by one person in a school day The number of germs on your fingertips doubles after you use the toilet A third of people do not use soap when washing their hands 95% of people do not wash their hands for long enough or dry them thoroughly
