Global Handwashing Day at Meritech
by Meritech, on October 15,2020
On October 15th our team celebrated Global Handwashing Day! On this day we encouraged everyone to spend some time increasing awareness of the importance of handwashing and educating others on the proper handwashing steps. Our team shared why we washed our hands, held a social media contest to encourage others to celebrate Global Handwashing Day and put together an entire toolkit to encourage hand hygiene education.
Celebrating Global Handwashing Day at Meritech
As part of Global Handwashing Day we wanted everyone to understand the “why” behind good hand hygiene. At the Meritech headquarters in Golden and across the United States, our team filled out their handwashing pledge, letting us know why they washed their hands.
We also celebrated with catered lunch, which our partners in hygiene excellence could also win by sharing their Global Handwashing Day event on social media!

We also encouraged all of our social media followers to join the hygiene revolution by downloading the Global Handwashing Day Toolkit and posting images of their teams celebrating Global Handwashing Day!
Ongoing hand hygiene education after Global Handwashing Day
Because hygiene is intrinsically behavior-based, it is critically important to continuously reinforce hygiene best practices through constant reminders and regular training. At Meritech we offer the tools and resources you need to stay educated and inform those around you. Our team of hygiene experts works diligently to create webinars, free downloadable handwashing activities and other content so you can be as healthy and safe as possible.
