Proper hand hygiene is one of the easiest ways to help prevent the spread of germs in schools. A big challenge schools face, though, is how to make learning about proper hand hygiene enjoyable for students. Symmetry Hand Hygiene assemblies are fun, engaging and educational to help students develop lifelong hand hygiene practices. They are designed for students in Pre-K to 3rd grade and feature Biscuit, the Paw-Washing Dog. The assemblies include an interactive video along with germ facts and proper hand washing/hand sanitizing steps.
Symmetry Hand Hygiene assemblies are part of the Symmetry Hand Hygiene Program. The program offers a complete set of customizable education and awareness tools to assist in creating a culture of hand hygiene at your school. You can customize informative education and awareness pieces that focus on the “why” and “how” of proper hand hygiene. There are wall charts, posters, handwashing videos, and product literature available for your school. You can also implement the Symmetry Behavior Modification System (SBMS), which uses behavioral science to drive hand hygiene practices. It incorporates 6 key tenets to inspire hand hygiene compliance including: Benevolence, Accountability, Responsibility, Variation, Emotion, and Direction. The goal of SBMS is to provide tools that capture attention in the moment, driving an immediate hand hygiene event to take place. These resources are designed to help students understand the importance of proper hand hygiene, but also enjoy learning about it.
