STANDARD WITH TORK Tork is offering a one-stop resource hub to businesses keen to enhance their hygiene procedures under ‘new normal’ guidelines.

The brand’s ‘Secure the new hygiene standard’ website offers a free downloadable Back to Business Toolkit to help companies keep customers safe as part of a reopening plan.

According to a recent global survey, 81% of respondents have higher expectations of public washrooms to provide a safe and hygienic environment in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis.

“This period has been challenging for businesses, and customers’ hygiene expectations have increased,” said Essity President of Professional Hygiene Don Lewis. “This means hygiene practices will be scrutinised more than ever as businesses begin to welcome back employees and customers.”


AND SPARKLING HYDROTAP With employers searching to create COVID-secure workplaces in order for staff to return safely, Zip Water has created the HydroTap Touch Free Wave, a contactless drinking water system that delivers instant filtered boiling, chilled and sparkling water.

Available in the UK from December, the new Zip HydroTap Touch Free Wave is a 100% contactless drinking water solution and is the latest innovation in the flagship HydroTap range. With health and hygiene now an absolute priority in the workplace, the Zip HydroTap Touch Free Wave allows employees to stay hydrated and healthy, while avoiding surface contact to minimise the risk of virus transmission.

Smart infrared sensors detect hand movements when in a 1.5cm - 5cm range of the tap, with water flow stopping immediately once the hand is moved away. The tap also features a contactless safety lock for the delivery of boiling water.

The customisable Back to Business Toolkit includes informative posters, checklists, hand hygiene prompts and bold signage designed to remind the public about one-way systems and social- distancing requirements.

Other resources for businesses include:

A white paper, infographics and educational videos that detail how hygienic solutions such as paper towels, skincare products, tissue and napkin systems can help contribute to a cleaner and safer facility.
