Why take a hand hygiene quiz

It’s no secret that hand hygiene is one of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of infection. In fact, hand hygiene is so important that it’s one of the six main principles of the World Health Organization’s Global Strategy for Hand Hygiene. But hand hygiene is more than just washing your hands with soap and water. Hand hygiene also includes using alcohol-based hand sanitizers, especially when soap and water are not available. One of the most common ways to contract an infection is by touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with contaminated hands. Hand hygiene is the key to stopping the spread of infection, and it’s important that your workers are aware of the best practices for hand hygiene. That’s why we’ve put together this quiz on hand hygiene. It’s a great way to ensure that your workers are up-to-date on the latest hand hygiene practices and know when and how to use hand sanitizers.

Deploy a hand hygiene quiz to your team

In food service and healthcare settings, good hand hygiene is essential for protecting workers and preventing the spread of illness. However, many workers don’t always follow proper hand hygiene guidelines. This quiz can help identify any areas where your team may be lacking knowledge and close these knowledge gaps so your team can better protect themselves and others. This training is critical for protecting the health and safety of your team, as it teaches them how to properly wash their hands, using the right techniques and products. With regular hand hygiene refresher training, your team will be more confident with following proper hand hygiene guidelines, which can help prevent the spread of illness and keep your workplace safe. Plus, you’ll also get access to your team’s results ​​so you can understand individual workers’ knowledge gaps, as well as overall performance once the quiz is complete. For teams that require more regular refresher training, you’ll also have the option to deliver the hand hygiene quiz to your team in bite-sized chunks, at regular intervals. This allows your team to reinforce their knowledge at their own pace, making them more likely to recall and implement what they learned sooner than if they were to have completed a one-off training program. And the best part is that your team can access this quiz on their preferred device whenever they have 5 minutes to spare – whether that’s on their commute, in between tasks, or before they finish up for the day.
