School and College Hygiene Services

Educational establishments are particularly susceptible to outbreaks of colds and flu, because of the high volume of users from different areas, .

Initial offers a full range of services and educational information to ensure your school or college has the right hygiene standards to stay healthy.

The risks of poor hygiene in education

  • Failure to comply with health and safety regulations.
  • Academic performance suffers due to increased staff and student absenteeism.
  • Potential damage to your reputation for prospective parents and students.

Bad hygiene hotspots in educational premises

Our comprehensive range of products can improve hygiene standards in all of these problematic areas:


The usual epicentre of germs; our soaps, sanitisers and hand dryers can help to prevent harmful pathogens from escaping the washroom.

Reception / Front Door

First impressions are crucial. Installing any of Initial’s fixed or serviced matting will ensure yours is a positive one.


Kitchen hygiene keeps staff and students safe from food related illnesses. Our soaps and sanitisers will minimise the amount of germs in the food preparation areas.


Dirty classrooms are breeding grounds for harmful bacteria. Portable or fixed hand sanitisers notably reduce the risk of school-wide infection outbreaks.

Why is hygiene important in educational establishments?

  • Children are more at risk of contracting and transmitting infections at school due to their immature immune systems coming into close contact with other children and pathogens.
  • The regular use of hand sanitisers can reduce absenteeism by 30-50%
  • In a classroom test, a virus was detected on up to 50% of surfaces and norovirus on up to 22%. Children in this control classrooms were 2.32 times more likely to report absenteeism due to illness than children in a properly treated classroom.
