GOJO Offers Tips to Help Industrial Hand Cleaner Pay Off for Workers

AKRON, OH--(Marketwired - Apr 23, 2013) - Companies that rely on people's hands to get work done in tough environments can benefit from providing education at their wash basins, according to the hand care specialists at GOJO Industries.

GOJO industrial hand cleaner products have been a mainstay for hardworking employees for nearly 70 years. GOJO is the innovator in cleaning and conditioning dirty hands to resist complications from years of hard work in tough soils, and leads in providing hand hygiene and industrial hand cleaner education. 

"Since we introduced industrial hand cleaner for Akron's rubber and other manufacturing workers, GOJO has helped companies educate employees about cleaning and conditioning their hands. That education, in turn, can enhance their at-work experience," said Jim Brown, GOJO Tough Soils market manager.

"GOJO has informative videos, posters and other materials available on our website to share with workers," he said. "Our educational materials are useful in automotive shops and manufacturing plants to complement our line of industrial hand cleaner products." 

Healthy hands begin with quality skin care. "Do" tips include:

  • Use professional-grade skin conditioner before and after work.
  • Wash regularly with the industrial hand cleaner designed for your soils.
  • Use the gentlest cleaner that is effective.
  • Wash hands in warm water.
  • Use wipes for in-between cleanup.
  • Keep tools clean to help keep hands clean.

Some "Don'ts":

  • Never use harsh detergents, solvents or chemicals to clean skin.
  • Don't use regular bar soap if your hands are greasy and grimy, as weak soap can cause you to scrub too hard.
  • Don't use abrasives or brushes not designed for skin.
  • Never put dirty hands into gloves.
