Guidance Posters

Education is a very important part of maintaining high hygiene standards on your premises. At Cannon Hygiene, we believe it is very important to not only provide the best hygiene facilities possible, but to also help educate staff and visitors to your premises on how to practice good hygiene.

That is why Cannon Hygiene provide a a selection of guidance posters, which range from basic hand washing techniques to waste segregation advice. The posters are available in PDF format and free to download. We would encourage you to use these posters and place them strategically around your premises to encourage and remind people to maintain good hygiene at all times.

If you have any questions or wish to discuss your hygiene service requirements, then please contact our team who will be happy to help. 

Washroom Hygiene Posters

Washing your hands is one of the most effective ways to remove germs, however worryingly research from The Royal Pharmaceutical Society revealed that 84% of adults in the UK do not wash their hands for long enough to effectively remove germs. Promote hand hygiene with Cannon’s educational washroom hygiene posters, which visually demonstrate how to wash your hands effectively with both soap and hand sanitiser.

Waste segregation posters

The United Kingdom has very strict legislation on the disposal of waste. Failure to adhere to the rules and regulations can result in your company being dealt a substantial fine. It is important that as a business owner you understand your legal responsibilities and then ensure that your staff are disposing of waste in the correct manner. The truth is that the legislation can be very confusing, so download our free posters and place them around your premises to remind staff on how to dispose and segregate waste correctly.
