A long-lasting supply of skin-friendly soap that is easy for children to access will help to speed up handwashing. Tork Foam Soaps work well in schools because the dispenser contains 2500 shots of soap, compared with around 1000 in most liquid soap systems, which means it’s unlikely to run out during busy periods. The dispenser also requires a particularly low push force, which makes handwashing easier for young schoolchildren. The soap is also available in Mild and Extra Mild formulations which are kind to the hands.


Hand dryers take at least 10 seconds to dry hands and can also cause logjams and queues, which need to be avoided at all costs in our new, socially-distanced world. Paper hand towels are a better option because they speed up hand drying while allowing the pupil to take a towel and move away from the dispenser, freeing it up for the next student.


Tork PeakServe is a particularly good option for schools because it takes just three seconds to access a towel from the dispenser which means hand drying can be carried out quickly and efficiently. The unit also holds more than 2000 hand towels which means a long-lasting supply is ensured, and the towels are given out singly to prevent the risk of cross contamination. Additionally, the dispenser requires an exceptionally low pull force, which makes it particularly suitable for children.


Where pupils are washing and drying their hands more frequently there’s a real risk that their hands will become chapped and sore. It therefore makes sense to provide a fragrance-free conditioning cream such as Tork Non- perfumed Hand & Body Lotion for the pupils’ use. And hand sanitisers such as Tork Alcohol Hand Sanitisers are a good supplement to hand washing.


Encouraging hand hygiene and enforcing social distancing will potentially make life more difficult for teachers. We at Essity are therefore doing what we can to ease their burden by launching the Tork Safe at Work Education Toolkit.


This provides guidelines on surface cleaning and sanitisation to help reduce the spread of pathogens in schools. It offers recommendations for hand hygiene protocols for both teachers and students and incorporates downloadable leaflets, colouring-in posters and hand hygiene ‘diplomas’ to educate and incentivise children to carry out hand hygiene effectively.


It gives advice on the best places to situate sanitiser dispensers such as in libraries, labs, changing rooms and in entrances to prompt for staff and students to use them. Other highlights of the toolkit include activity cards, hand hygiene experiments and details of the Ella’s Hand Washing Adventure App which can be downloaded from the App Store or from Google Play.


There’s no doubt that the return to schools post-COVID-19 will present new challenges – just like every other part of our lives during the ‘new normal’. However, with the aid of good systems and good advice, the return to school this autumn will hopefully be both safe and successful.

“Since the threat of COVID-19 is an ongoing one, staff and pupils must prepare for the ‘new norm’ in the education sector.”
