Soap Dispenser Alarm Shames People Into Washing Their Hands [Video]
Safeguard makes it difficult to leave the bathroom with dirty hands.
Even though bathrooms are breeding grounds for germs and other bacteria, only 1 in 3 people wash their hands after using a public toilet. Add to that that only 5% of people wash their hands well enough to kill germs, and Safeguard‘s new Germ Alarm seems like a great idea. It emits an ear-piercing beep that can only be deactivated by pressing the wall-mounted soap dispenser.
The soap dispenser uses pressure sensors that are connected to cubicle stall doors, which once opened, trigger the germ alarm. Each of the dispensers also has a guide alongside it that teaches people how to wash their hands properly.
