Reckitt, parent company of Reckitt Professional, has revealed the company distributed more than 10,000 bottles of hand sanitiser as the official hygiene partner of the Platinum Jubilee Pageant.
Dettol Pro Solutions also installed more than 100 hand sanitiser dispensers and provided hygiene kits for all volunteers, staff and attendees across the celebration weekend. An estimated number of 150,000 people attended the pageant during the event.
Jonathan Weiss, commercial director at Reckitt’s Pro Solutions, said the company was delighted to have been the official hygiene partner of the historic event.
“Active communication is key to building confidence and reassuring thousands of attendees, so we’ve aimed to create an experience that maximises the perception of care, to inspire behaviour change when it comes to practicing good hygiene,” Weiss said.
“Overall heightened awareness of hand hygiene among staff and customers is something businesses should look to not just sustain, but actively encourage.
“We believe that simplicity is key when it comes to following good hygiene practices. Making antibacterial products easily available to visitors or providing training for staff and volunteers has proven to be simple and effective to help us achieve that.”
According to Reckitt research from June 2021, 56 per cent of Australians said that they washed or sanitised their hands more frequently compared to the year prior.
The latest research from Reckitt shows that 74 per cent of Australian consumers are still concerned about germs, yet 68 per cent of Australians are more likely to be confident in the level of hygiene of a business if they use Dettol, which increases to 81 per cent amongst those who are ‘hygiene driven’.
