Meeting Classroom Sink Regulations
Because hand washing is such a valuable part of a child’s hygiene routine, it’s important to have sinks readily available for children of all ages. In fact, this isn’t a nice sentiment, but it is actually a legal requirement for many childcare facilities. If you are in charge of a classroom, whether this is a preschool, daycare, Head Start program or grade school - you’ll need to know what is required, and then how to get the tools you need. Here are a few guidelines and requirements in regards to classrooms and sinks.
Hand Washing Habits Start in the Classroom
At All Portable Sinks, we realize the importance of healthy hand hygiene. This is part of the reason we help people put sinks where they need them most - despite the availability of plumbing! One area where hand washing is so important is in the education system. From daycares to schools, you will have hundreds of kids gathered together bringing all types of germs with them to exchange. As many studies have shown, proper hand washing can make a huge impact in this area. Let’s dive into several challenges that come from bad hand washing habits, and how providing portable sinks in the classroom can be such a huge benefit.
