Hand sanitizer is quick and convenient. But it’s dangerous, irritates skin, and isn’t a true long term solution.
Conventional sinks are great to use. But they are expensive and difficult to install everywhere needed.
Students the world over need to clean their hands properly, but their choices are falling short. Their current options can lead to serious injury.
Behavioural science, design & testing has led to simple, yet groundbreaking portable sinks that people love and that eliminate the risk of children ingesting alcohol sanitizer or suffering chemical burns in their eyes.
We’re in a global health crisis but conventional solutions are slow or compromised.
Leading organisations are now implementing high quality facilities that are safe and ready to use in days — not months. Innovative portable sinks are simple to install and use, just as effective as conventional sinks.
SETUP & TRAINING
EASE OF USE
It’s not enough to provide sinks and soap only in bathrooms. Why? Because it’s not enough to wash hands only after using the toilet.
The future of hand hygiene is washing in more places and at more times. This will require a shift in facilities management - everywhere from schools, to clinics, to transport hubs, to workplaces.
No more leaving the room, going down the hall, finding the third door on the right, just to wash hands. Instead, handwashing within reach. Everywhere.
The ancient practice is so simple that we assume that we’ve got it covered. But as the world changes and we face new threats, the old approach is no longer fit for purpose. The days of teaching kids a handwashing song but keeping sinks behind closed doors should be over.
HappyTap is singularly focused on helping others imagine a new state in which handwashing is easily done in the most convenient place: where you are. In the classroom, in the waiting room, at the entrance, in the restaurant, at the airport, at home - not searching for the bathroom.
