Biosecurity Action Point – Hand Sanitizers

Action Point: Add hand sanitizers to barn aisles every five horses alternating on different sides of the aisle and at all entrances with explanatory short sign.

Rationale: Hand hygiene is considered essential to infectious disease control in human medicine, and in veterinary medicine (Scheftel et al. 2010). Since going to the washroom between horses is inefficient, I think that having hand sanitizers easily accessible with clear explanations as to how they are a simple way that can reduce biosecurity risk, will encourage people to use them more.

This is the sign that we would be using for our Hand Sanitizer stations in the barn
