Handwashing Protection For Colleges & Universities

Has your school, college or university had a flu season, a norovirus outbreak or other episode of illness? Foodborne illness and norovirus are 2 of the biggest threats facing schools today, and Meritech can help by assisting you with a variety of automated handwashing systems for kitchen staff and for student use. We have installed systems in college dining hall entrances for students to use prior to eating, in cafeterias at the front of self-serve lines, in food prep and in ready-to-eat production areas for food production hand hygiene. All of our systems help to reduce the risk of disease transmission or food borne illness by insuring that students and staff wash more, wash more effectively every time, and become more aware of the importance of a hand hygiene in stopping the spread of infectious disease.

With thousands or tens of thousands of students all living in close proximity and moving quickly around campus, pathogens can be spread rapidly from facility to facility and ultimately from student to student which elevates the need for hygiene solutions. To prevent this cycle of contagion, Meritech can work with your college’s dining and facilities staff to determine the best location in each facility to insure that students have an opportunity and an incentive to wash before entering the living or dining space. And your college’s food production and food service areas are perfect for Meritech’s automated handwashing stations to encourage your food prep team to wash more often and to make every wash effective.
