… about electric hand drying.
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.
Leading microbiologist Dr. David Webber concludes that the use of hand dryers in the washroom does not contribute to the spread of Covid 19 and that warm air hand dryers are safe to use during the current pandemic. The virus is spread by droplet transmission and contact with contaminated surfaces. To reduce the risk of infection in the washroom, guidance from the WHO states that hands must be washed thoroughly using soap and hot water and then dried using either a paper towel or a hand dryer.
To mark WHO’s World Day of Hand Hygiene (5th May), the electric Handdryer Association (eHA), the official body that represents the global hand dryer industry, shares its key facts to help the public understand the importance of thorough hand drying as part of the hand washing process – particularly during the pandemic. Correct hand hygiene safe lives.

Companies supporting the new alliance »electric Handdryer Association – eHA« are representing an efficient and sustainable market. Modern products in the air-based handdrying business are characterized by being environmentally friendly, efficient, and economically attractive.
Life cycle analyses have demonstrated that energy efficient electric hand dryers use less energy and fewer natural resources to dry hands than paper towels. In addition, replacing paper towels with a hand dryer reduces solid waste going to landfills, which reduces disposal and maintenance costs.
Our industry has lots of potential. We need to focus on that while simultaneously challenging the critical arguments made by the paper world. As long as nobody reflects on the communicational input from the tissue industry, things can be described the wrong way without consequences.
Therefore this initiative has been founded. You are interested in participating or you want more information? Please subscribe to our newsletter or get in touch using the button below.
