Collaboration sees leading education supplier supporting distribution of Hand Inspection Cabinet
British manufacturer Daro UV Systems (part of the Daro Group), is pleased to announce its partnership with HBS Group. The partnership aims to support the widespread distribution of the company’s Hand Inspection Cabinet into the education sector.
The hand inspection unit is designed to encourage good hygiene practices. It provides a striking visual and educational aid for schools, and other educational establishments by using safe Ultraviolet light and light responsive Glitterbug lotion to highlight areas where handwashing should be improved. Users first apply the lotion to hands, then, after washing, hands are placed in the inspection cabinet. Any remaining lotion, in areas where washing was not sufficient, will fluoresce under the ultraviolet lamp, thus demonstrating flaws in the hand washing technique of the user. By helping pupils, teachers and support staff identify where they need to improve handwashing technique, more effective infection control can be achieved.
NHS approved supplier Daro UV has been working with the NHS and schools to help teach really effective hand hygiene and has been a trusted specialist in ultraviolet (UV) systems since 1985. The company specialises in the design and manufacture of UV products for water, air and surface disinfection and hygiene equipment – using UV light.
HBS is a family business, founded in 1973 and is focused on providing exceptional value in educational supplies and resources for schools, nurseries and teachers, backed up by great customer service and next day delivery. The company has always had a focus on hygiene but has had to grow this side of the business since the onset of Coronavirus. Since the pandemic began, their team has worked hard to source a range of effective, affordable products during this period. Following feedback from one of the schools supplied to, HBS heard about the Daro Hand Inspection Cabinet and contact was initiated.
Mervyn Douglas, managing director at Daro, said: “The education sector is a key one for us when it comes to teaching life-long hand hygiene habits with the aid of the Hand Inspection Cabinet. We are therefore delighted to have HBS Group on board.
“We’ve received very positive feedback from trusts and schools’ heads about how the Hand Inspection Cabinets have really helped at such a trying time. Not just in demonstrating to school children the value of good hand hygiene, but also in increasing confidence in staff and parents in a safer return to school. There is no better teaching aid, and we’re keen for schools up and down the country to embrace what it has to offer.”
Selwyn Doouss, director of sales and marketing at HBS Group, added: “When schools return in September 2020, we are well-positioned to really support their every stationery and hygiene need.
“The Hand Inspection Cabinet is not an impulse buy, but an ongoing, longlasting tool to support the improvement of handwashing and hygiene in schools. Its reasonable pricing should see it being well received by teachers and parents alike. Pupils need to wash their hands properly, and this is a fun way of introducing this requirement into the classroom.”
