Get ideas to produce your own Hygiene Posters... or try one of ours!

We are posting a (picture) list of poster ideas that can be used to hang around health facilities, clinics, schools, daycares, preschools, homes, food services, restaurants or other areas that germs frequent.

The posters seen in this article have not been professionally published. They are just ideas that you can use for your school or facility to remind of health topics.

Poor Hygiene Doesn't Make Sense Either (Idea 1)

Preventative Health Measures Make Sense

A little weird to have this poster design hanging in your organization? Of course it is! That is a great reason to post it because it gets noticed.

Having an infection control plan in your organization or home is one of the best ways to OUTFOX illness and disease. Teaching kids, co-workers, employees and others about hygiene can benefit everyone! Teach hand washing, environmental cleaning, sanitation, food safety and other methods of infection control.

Poor Hygiene Doesn't Make Sense Either (Idea 1.1)

Not much on this poster idea makes sense... but poor hygiene doesn't either! Washing your hands, covering your coughing/sneezing, staying home when sick, seeing a doctor when appropriate, getting sleep and other methods keep you healthy. Not to mention, you help keep others around you healthy. Have a concrete infection control plan for your organization or home so you can OUTFOX illness and disease!

Mom Making Out With BigFoot Doesn't Make Sense... and Neither Does Poor Hygiene! Continually improve your personal infection control plan to get sick less often. OUTFOX does not promote germophobia but does support a responsible approach to germs. Tak responsibility with your own actions and others will follow!

Poor Hygiene Doesn't Make Sense Either (Idea 1.3)

Chicken Eating Chicken.. Make Sense? No! Neither does conducting your life in a manner that is inconsistent with good hygiene principles. Maintain a healthly lifestyle with simple steps. Wash your hands, carry hand sanitizer, sleep well, eat well and visit the doctor when appropriate. You don't have to be OCD to be healthy often- just take responsibility for the areas in your life you can control! Be aware without going overboard.

Poor Hygiene Doesn't Make Sense Either (Idea 1.5)

Some things are wrong and gross... The attached poster is an example of one of those things. Although the poster doesn't make sense, we can focus on things that do make sense. For example, we can focus on maintaining a simple and effective infection control plan for our personal lives. Using simple steps of hand washing, hand sanitizing, sleeping well, eating well and going to the doctor when appropriate can help us live better. Promote better hygiene principles in your organization or home today!

Hand Washing Debate... Vote: Do you feel secure with hand sanitizer?

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!
