Can New SCRUBS Hand Cleaner Towels Improve Productivity?

SCRUBS® Hand Cleaner Towels

  • Clean your hands ANYWHERE, ANYPLACE, ANYTIME!®
  • Blue textured towel is saturated with a powerful, yet gentle citrus-based cleaner
  • Dissolve dirt, paint, grease and grime and lock it into the towel

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, $21.97 is the average hourly compensation rate for production workers in manufacturing (or $0.36 per minute).

When a worker takes a break to go clean their hands, it will typically take several minutes. If such a break were to last seven minutes, it would cost the employer $2.52 per break.

If you consider that some restrooms may be some distance from the work area and co-worker conversations take place along the way, the total amount of time (and cost) may be much greater. If a worker has to clean their hands three times during an 8 hour shift, the expense adds up to $7.56. For a shop of 10 workers working a 40 hour week, this adds up to $378 of lost productivity.

The average end-user cost of a SCRUBS® Hand Cleaner Towel is only about 19 cents. That means that a seven minute trip to the wash room would pay for over 13 towels ($2.52 / 0.19).

This estimates that a worker’s use of 13 towels will eliminate 3 trips to the wash room just to remove grease and grime. As a result, at least 21 minutes of lost production time are regained per 8 hour shift – that’s 5% of the workday.
