Are you planning on hosting an outdoor event this summer? If so, you should consider renting a portable handwash station. Outdoor events are a great way to enjoy the warm weather, but it’s important to be vigilant about practising proper hand hygiene and maintaining sufficient social distance to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

Advantages of Handwash Stations

Portable handwashing stations promote good hand hygiene practices and can stop the spread of germs. Here are some additional benefits of renting one for your outdoor event:

  • They allow guests to clean their hands. In addition to eliminating germs, handwashing ensures the elimination of dirt, pesticides and other chemicals that alcohol-based hand sanitizers can’t remove.

  • They’re more accessible than bathrooms. Handwash stations provide convenient outdoor access to soap and water. They ensure your guests don’t have to seek out bathroom facilities nor wait in lengthy lineups to clean their hands.

  • They can ensure compliance. Handwash stations can help guarantee that your event follows public health recommendations.

In addition, portable stations can be more affordable than other handwashing solutions.

When to Install Handwash Stations

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of proper hand hygiene. Washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds can kill the COVID-19 virus. While alcohol-based hand sanitizers are great for killing germs, they’re not effective for visibly soiled hands. Here are some examples of outdoor occasions that can benefit from portable handwash stations:

  • Weddings

  • Birthday and anniversary parties

  • Corporate events

  • Picnics and barbeques

  • Concerts and festivals

  • Golf tournaments

  • Fundraisers
