When it comes to washing their hands, Americans say they are getting the message, but their actions speak otherwise. While nine out of ten (92%) Americans, in a recent telephone survey, said they always washed their hands after using a public restroom, an observational survey in 5 cities found the actual number to be more like 3 out of 4 (77%). That’s down nearly 10% from a similar study done in 2005, and it’s all the men’s fault!
This amusing and effective video, filmed and submitted to YouTube by Ben Spring, highlights the importance of hand washing in the workplace. Ben's work was nominated for Florida's Suncoast Regional Emmy, which he won for this piece.
