On WHO’s World Day of Hand Hygiene, 5th May, the electric Handdryer Association (eHA), the official body that represents the global hand dryer industry, points out the importance of proper hand hygiene and welcomes several countries' decisions to lift bans on electric hand dryers in public restrooms and workplaces.
In recent months, hygienic hands have been heavily associated with staying healthy during the global COVID-19 pandemic and electric hand drying has been recommend by WHO as one of the most effective and safe ways to complete the hand washing process. The electric Handrying Association’s (eHA), which is made up of hand drying firms across the globe, is not only committed to promoting good hand hygiene, but also fighting false information on the internet – and now the growing organization is pleased to announce a new special partner, UK-based Intelligent Facility Solutions, an international supply of energy-efficient hand-dryers.
Andy Cameron, Managing Partner of Intelligent Facility Solutions, comments on the special partnership and the challenge the industry faces:
“I am delighted to be joining the electric Handdryer Association. For so long, the multi-billion euro paper towel industry has been using its power to attack hand dryers which are safe, effective and a far more environmentally friendly option. The hand dryer industry must unite to hit back at the PR-lead, dubious science and misinformation put out by the paper towel industry and promote its own positive messages, and the eHA is perfectly placed to galvanise innovation and achieve important environmental objectives.”
Statement from Udo Sonnenberg, Managing Director from eHA:
“We are happy to welcome Intelligent Facility Solutions and its agile founder, Andy Cameron, on board. It’s important the electric hand drying industry helps to educate the public and commercial industries on the truth when it comes to hand drying and we have built a web-site which breaks down fact from fiction. I am optimistic that, with sources of information such as this and the combined effort of the eHA, that electric hand drying in the long run will become the leading, sustainable hand drying system.”
