Bactol® Hand Hygiene Range

Hand hygiene is a simple act – yet one that can save the lives of your patients and staff. Regular hand hygiene has never been more important, but poorly formulated hand sanitisers are wreaking havoc on our hands. This is where Bactol® steps in – with effective cleaning, balanced by emollients leaving skin feeling soft and healthy.

“Hands are the main pathways of germ transmission during health care,” according to the World Health Organisation. “Hand hygiene is therefore the most important measure to avoid the transmission of harmful germs and prevent healthcare-associated infections (HAIs).”

Whiteley understands the importance of hand hygiene and has developed a range of products and educational programs to reduce the spread of HAIs. The Whiteley hand sanitiser range includes Bactol® Clear and Bactol® Blue, both 70% ethanol formulations and are manufactured in Australia.

The McLaws Hand Hygiene Compliance Calculator

Developed by renowned epidemiologist Professor Mary-Louise McLaws to improve hand hygiene compliance in hospitals.

Hand hygiene compliance is crucial within hospitals to prevent the spread of bacteria and infection from one patient to another. This simple calculator is designed to assess how many hand hygiene moments healthcare staff are performing daily and estimates the amount of hand hygiene product usage that is required to meet recommended compliance levels.

The Science Behind Bactol®

Modern healthcare workers got the message: regular hand hygiene has never been so important. But with increased frequency comes dry, cracked skin which compromises skin integrity.

Bactol® Sanitisers help alleviate this problem in two ways. Firstly, by delivering exactly the right kind and amount of cleaning agent for each hand hygiene application. Secondly, every Bactol® product is enhanced with emollients that help keep skin soft, smooth and healthy.

The Bactol® range of products are fully Australian made; the result of decades of research and development, including extensive feedback from healthcare workers and facilities.
