Proper hygiene is the best way to prevent the spread of dangerous pathogens. Unfortunately, making sure your team is following all hygiene SOPs to ensure food safety each and every time is difficult. So can you overcome the variability of human behavior and ensure handwashing compliance for food safety at your facility?
Our fully automated hygiene equipment is clinically proven to remove more than 99.9% of harmful pathogens in seconds. We also offer educational guides and resources such as handwashing posters and safety day kits to help you reinforce good food safety hygiene behaviors with your team.
Automated hygiene systems help build effective employee hygiene SSOPs for food safety.
Proven in certified, independent laboratories to remove more than 99.9% of pathogens from hands.
Fast and easy for users, regardless of age, language or skill level to eliminate 99.9% of pathogens from their hands.
Designed for optimal pathogen reduction when used in Meritech automated hygiene systems.
75% less water and waste compared to manual handwashing.
Poor hygiene significantly impacts the health and safety of your employees, food products, and ultimately—your customers. No matter how stringent your hand washing procedures and SSOPs are, humans are prone to variability and error, resulting in poor hand hygiene and the spread of harmful pathogens.
Meritech eliminates cross-contamination risk from hands and footwear with fully automated, validated, and standardized employee hygiene technology:
We have conducted extensive efficacy studies in FDA-certified laboratories to prove that CleanTech® handwashing systems consistently remove more than 99.9% of harmful pathogens with each wash cycle. These studies were conducted on CleanTech® equipment using Meritech Hygiene Solutions. These independent laboratories specialized in topical antimicrobials and the science of hands and used the ASTM hand hygiene testing that is mandated by the FDA in the Guidelines for Healthcare Hand Hygiene TFM to test our CleanTech® systems.
The ASTM hand hygiene testing is only standard in the United States for validating hand hygiene effectiveness, and this standard employs the “Glove Juice Test Methodology” which is administered in a controlled environment that minimized the variables that affect skin hygiene testing.
Across these studies it was validated that Meritech’s CleanTech® automated hygiene systems remove more than 99.9% of pathogens from hands during each 12-second cycle.
Handwashing is the most powerful defense against the transmission of pathogens, but humans are prone to error, leaving room for contamination in your facility. CleanTech® provides a hand wash that exceeds FSMA, FDA and USDA requirements in 12 seconds, every time. By automating the process, you remove the variability of human behavior, in turn reducing your risk and increasing employee compliance.
While we are certainly proud of our innovative technology, Meritech is more than an equipment manufacturer—we are a strategic partner in hygiene excellence. Our goal is to make effective handwashing easy, effective, and sustainable for the environment, all while providing you with real-time and simplified insights from our CleanTech® systems to help you proactively address hygiene compliance issues.
Meritech's proprietary solution formulations are specifically designed to work with our automated hygiene system to ensure the removal of 99.9% of pathogens during each hand washing cycle. Not only are these unique solutions designed for optimal pathogen reduction and skin health, they are also alcohol-free, fragrance-free, triclosan-free, dye-free, biodegradable and kosher.
When employee hands are placed in the hand washing cylinders, jets deploy water and our proprietary solution evenly across all areas of the hands, achieving a balance of removal of dangerous pathogens without excessive damage to the skin, in two ways - gentle friction using a mild anti-microbial and balanced formulation of surfactants, and the addition of skin healthy emollients in our solutions to promote skin health and a normal skin ecology.
Meritech CleanTech® systems not only consistently and effectively remove 99.9% of pathogens from each user’s hands, these automated handwashing stations also:
