Hand Dryers are Safe and Government backed

The UK government has joined global health experts, including the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in approving the use of hand dryers throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

The confirmation follows a campaign from the hand drying industry requesting government to update its official guidelines.

The government's 'Working safely during Coronavirus' guidance states that, to help everyone keep good hygiene throughout the working day, businesses should provide hand drying facilities in the form of either paper towels or electrical dryers.
