Hand Sanitizer Posters that work

Updated on February 28, 2015

Hand Sanitizer Posters that Help Remind About Effective Hygiene and Infection Control

Posters are an important part of every hygiene or infection control campaign. It doesn't matter whether you are in a school, daycare, hospital, clinic, healthcare facility, food service, restaurant or some other germ hotspot. The principles you teach to maintain a clean environment to reduce the spread of illness and disease will be similar.

Posters are great ways to promote health in your organization. Picutres and catchy phrases go a long way in your fight against germs. You want to arm your students and employees with as much information so they act responsibly when it comes to hygiene.

You usually start with a lesson, talk about hygiene standards, demonstrate hand washing or environmental cleaning, discuss goals, define measurable objectives, establish incentives/consequences and then follow up with reminders. Posters can be placed at the beginning of campaigns to induce thoughts about hygiene topics. However, they are most effective after students or employees are aware of higher standards.

We are excited to share these posters and know they can make a difference in your organization!

You can obtain these posters from our website here ( We are giving away a free hygiene poster (digital) right now. Just email us at and we will send one to get you started.

Together we can OUTFOX illness and disease!

The "Drop Everything" hygiene poster is good reminder tool for a business atmosphere. Our society is always running around busy and often forgets about good hygiene. Drop Everything is a great notice for business people to carry hand sanitizer or wash their hands frequently.

Sometimes the most effective thing you can do is Drop Everything and focus on one important task. That one important task is hand hygiene. Hand sanitizers are very effective when hand washing with soap and water is not possible... so get a drop or two of sanitizer!

A Poster When You Can't Finder Water to Wash

There are plenty of places we work or play at that do not provide adequate water. Camping, working outside, traveling abroad, etc. are only a few examples. Place this poster in areas to remind employees or students to carry hand sanitizing gels or sprays as much as possible. You never know when you will need to wash your hands only to find out there is no water or soap. The CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) has released information that supports hand sanitizers as an adequate replacement for hand washing in most situations.

This poster reminds people that even though there might not be adequate soap and water, you still need good hand hygiene! This can be accomplished by using hand sanitizer in between good hand washes.

Hand Washing Debate... Vote: Do you feel secure with hand sanitizer? - Give us your opinion opinion on hand sanitizers.

There has always been a running debate between hand washing and hand sanitizers... Does soap and water always trump the alcohol and non alcohol sanitizer rubs on the market? Recently as the CDC and other entities have recognized hand sanitizers more, we've seen an increased number of people that are washing less and sanitizing more.

Germs are everywhere which facilitates people carrying sanitizing gels and sanitizing sprays around with them, but should you be getting to a sink with hot water and soap more often then you currently do? You tell us. We just know that living according to effective infection control principles and maintaining high hygiene standards is important!

Reminders About Hand Washing Are Important!

This hygiene poster about hand sanitizers has been appealing to busy professionals because of the reference to "schedule." Effective placement has been done in office buildings in general, employee bulletin boards, break rooms, scheduling areas, mail rooms and other areas where people look for timely information. This is only one way to construct an effective infection control strategy for your organization.

Sometimes you just need to tell people to squeeze hand hygiene into their busy schedules! If we don't remind people about the importance of proper hand hygiene at home, work or play then they will forget! Most are decent at washing their hands before eating, after using the restroom and other important times... but we need to remember sanitizer when we can't get to a sink to wash our hands.

How It Works: Cleaning Hands with Waterless Hand Sanitizer

From the Minnesota Department of Health


Two components

1. Waterless hand sanitizer

2. Friction


Four steps:

1. Make sure all organic matter is removed from hands.

All visible organic matter (for example: dirt) must be removed from hands prior to applying waterless hand sanitizer.

2. Apply a dime sized amount of waterless hand sanitizer to the palm of one hand or use a waterless hand sanitizer wipe.

3. Rub hands together covering all surfaces of hands and fingers.

4. Rub until waterless hand sanitizer is absorbed.

How it works:
