Question:

Should public and workplace toilets have wash basins in the cubicles?

If someone went to the toilet and did not wash their hands properly before touching a door handle and then you touched it, you could catch norovirus. The droplets stay on door handles and other objects for many hours. Most public loos you can't wash your hands before opening the cubicle. Is this unhygenic or will a good hand wash after you leave the cubical be enough?

Answer:

Washing your hands thoroughly prior to leaving the washroom will do a fine job of protecting you. Simply placing basins in the restroom stall won't impel people to wash their hands so it's not really all that necessary or even likely to decrease infection rates, realistically.

Having a sink on top of a toilet allows the water from your hands being washed to be recycled in the next flush. Thus being both green as well as being hygienic for the reasons you have given. So i agree with you 100% _()_

I examine for cleanliness and bathroom paper. it is not significant which stall that's. although, at artwork i exploit the top stall. that's a tad wider than the others and the dispenser is located forward and up from the accepted placement. I want the adult men who set up the bogs might ask women folk's evaluations in the previous they set up the bathroom tissue dispenser. that's often interior the way.

That would add too much cost. Washing after you leave the cubical is good enough. You can carry hand sanitizer if that isn't good enoug for you.

No- just wash your hands, keep the towel and open the door with it.. part of proper hand washing procedure.
