WITH PURELL In its mission to promote a healthier winter germ season, GOJO has launched a new campaign to help businesses boost wellness across the workforce.

Each winter, infection rates rise as millions of people contract influenza (‘flu’), norovirus, and other common colds and viruses. However, something as simple as increasing the frequency and effectiveness of hand washing and hand sanitising can have a big impact on public health, which in turn can impact the well-being of a workforce and help to reduce absenteeism. Average rates of absence across Europe are between 3% - 6% of working time, which has been estimated to cost about 2.5% of GDP.

Dangerous pathogens are not only transmitted through direct contact with others, but also indirectly via hands and surfaces. Therefore, if just one employee comes into the office with a cold and doesn’t take care to follow good hand hygiene, the infection can easily spread around


SENSOR SYSTEMS Pressac’s products are now even easier to integrate with EnOcean sensor systems after they received certification from the organisation - one of the leading authorities in the smart building industry.

EnOcean, which manufactures the low power radio modules used in many of Pressac’s sensors, has given its Level 3 Certification, the highest possible, to the company’s mini-series sensors, repeater and under-desk PIR sensor.

It means the devices are guaranteed to be compatible with any other products with the same level of EnOcean Alliance certification, even if they are produced by different companies.

James Bailey, Product Manager for Pressac, said: “Achieving this standard means that customers can

be assured our products are of a high quality and can easily slot into existing systems alongside other EnOcean Alliance products. It’s the highest possible level of EnOcean certification and this guaranteed interoperability will also make it easier for them to add to and expand their smart solutions in the future.

“We’ve had to meet a number of standards during the manufacture of our products to ensure they meet the EnOcean standard - including testing

the quality of their radio performance and the data that is transmitted.”

The EnOcean wireless standard, which Pressac’s products use, is one of the most widely-used in the smart building world, and is in operation in more than one million buildings worldwide.

Achieving EnOcean Level 3 Certification means that the products can display an EnOcean Alliance Certified logo and will be listed on the Certified Product Database on the EnOcean Alliance website. TOMORROW’S FM | 21

the entire workplace before they have come into direct contact with anyone.

Gojo’s new website offers tips around when to wash and sanitise and talks through the benefits of hand hygiene in different markets. It also has a variety of materials that can be downloaded and customised such as:

• A selection of web banners to help raise awareness of the campaign

• Social media content and messaging to help engage audiences

• Posters and infographics to encourage hygienic behaviours

Chris Wakefield, Vice President, European Marketing and UK & IE Sales, GOJO Industries-Europe Ltd. Commented: “Given the impact on our health, we advocate for hand sanitising facilities, such as hygienic hand rubs, becoming commonplace in offices, shops, food service establishments and other workplaces across Europe, as they are in healthcare settings. In doing this, we can enjoy a healthier germ season.”
