THE HY-5 METHOD

A Simple, Easy-to-Learn Hand Wash Technique

There are many ways of teaching hand washing, some good, some not so. We believed there should be a simple, unified method that would be easy-to-teach, fun-to-lean and easy to remember. So we came up with the HY-5 Method (pronounced ‘High 5’). 

Based on the proven hand washing techniques of the W.H.O (World Health Authority) HY-5 comprises of 5 key stages of hand washing with each stage repeated 5 times. Each stage effectively cleans a targeted area of the hands, fingertips or wrists and when combined together, prove to be a very effective method of hand washing indeed.

To help make HY-5 hand-wash training both fun and memorable, we have produced a HD hand wash training film together with a range of affordable teaching materials, and take-home ‘hygiene-reminders’ for attendees.
