Back to work? Simple steps for using your water cooler safely
Businesses are reopening after lockdown. Your staff and customers will want to continue to keep hydrated. Drinking water from water coolers is one of the best, sustainable and most convenient ways of providing healthy, safe, and hygienic hydration. Healthy hydration helps mental well-being and improves physical performance.

Here are some simple steps you can take to keep people using your water cooler dispensers safely: 

  • Regularly wipe water cooler taps and dispensing area using food-safe antibacterial wipes or spray
  • Empty the drip trap regularly and wash either in a dishwasher or sink with hot, soapy water
  • Keep the necessary distance (min. 2m) from other people when standing in line for water
  • Make sure to thoroughly wash your hands or disinfect them before using the water dispenser. Having hand sanitizer nearby for users is also recommended
  • Use a freshly cleaned water glass/bottle or use recyclable cups
