'HSE - Working safely during the coronavirus outbreak – a short guide'

Just received among my e-mails.

Here again emphasis on frequent hand washing. No mention of:

Water temperature (should be lukewarm or cold)

Rinsing ( as important as applying the soap. If you don’t rinse everything off you leave both soap – to cause skin damage – and micro-organisms – to cause infection – behind on the hands.

And no mention of the need to restore skin condition by using an emollient (moisturiser).

At least some emphasis on alcohol sanitisers, a small step forward.

And this is the advice from the ‘experts’!
