Encouraging hygienic habits

Japara homes around Australia have recently implemented a new initiative designed to educate young visitors about hygiene.

The initiative encourages kids to use antimicrobial handwashes and become more ‘germ aware’ through the display of a series of fun, educational posters at the entrances to our homes.

New handwash pumps have also been installed at a lower height with child-friendly instructions to make them more accessible for kids.

As this is an ongoing project, the success of the initial roll-out will be monitored, with further improvements and ideas to be added down the line.
