Hand Inspection Cabinet for Schools
UK educational equipment supplier HBS Group is distributing Daro UV System’s hand inspection cabinet into schools and nurseries.
The unit features a striking visual design to attract attention, and relies on ‘safe’ Ultraviolet light and light-responsive Glitterbug lotion to highlight areas where handwashing should be improved. After applying the lotion, users place their hands in the inspection cabinet which will fluoresce any areas where washing was not sufficient to remove the lotion.
Daro has been working with the NHS and schools to help teach really effective hand hygiene.
The company’s managing director, Mervyn Douglas, says: “The education sector is a key one for us when it comes to teaching life-long hand hygiene habits with the aid of the Hand Inspection Cabinet. We are therefore delighted to have HBS Group on board.
“We’ve received very positive feedback from trusts and schools’ heads about how the Hand Inspection Cabinets have really helped at such a trying time. Not just in demonstrating to school children the value of good hand hygiene, but also in increasing confidence in staff and parents in a safer return to school. There is no better teaching aid, and we’re keen for schools up and down the country to embrace what it has to offer.”
Selwyn Doouss, director of sales and marketing at HBS Group, adds: “When schools return in September 2020, we are well-positioned to really support their every stationery and hygiene need.
“The Hand Inspection Cabinet is not an impulse buy, but an ongoing, longlasting tool to support the improvement of handwashing and hygiene in schools. Its reasonable pricing should see it being well received by teachers and parents alike. Pupils need to wash their hands properly, and this is a fun way of introducing this requirement into the classroom.”
