Hand Wash Stations

Hand Washing Practices

Participants must wash their hands:

Before eating or preparing food

Before touching your face

After using the restroom

After leaving a public place

After blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing

After handling your mask

After changing a diaper

After caring for someone sick

After touching animals or pets

Moving from one activity or station to the next

Upon getting up 1st thing in the morning.

A hand wash station is a location with water and soap available for participants to wash their hands. This can be a regular restroom or a unit based on plans here. If the hand wash station is a regular restroom, disposable towels must be available for the participants to dry their hands.

Events should have one hand washing station for each activity area and several for any meal areas. Each unit should have one per every 12 participants.

Unit based hand washing stations

This link goes to hand wash stations sold by Downriver Equipment company: https://www.downriverequip.com/camping/kitchen/down-river-equipment/down-river-hand-wash-station-pid-1954

A unit or even can make their own for about $40. Here is an example: https://www.amazon.com/Tye-Works-Standard-System-Sanitation/dp/B007QUJ7B0?ref_=fsclp_pl_dp_2

Instead of the attachment on the bucket with a fancy attachment system just duct tape the tube to a Spring Claim and clamp it to the bucket. https://www.homedepot.com/p/ANVIL-2-in-Spring-Clamp-99691/302755764

2 bucket Hand Wash Station. Clean water comes out by pump (foot action), and dirty water goes into the bucket. This also conservers water. You have to pump to get water. Get hands wet, soap without water, then rinse with water. If you put water jugs up high for people, they turn the water on and let it run when they wash their hands. This also cross contaminates by turning the water on and off. Dirty water needs to flow into the dirty water bucket to not damage the environment.

Pumping the water with your foot allows for less water loss, and you only use the water you need. No cross contamination.

I would suggest when we fill up the clean water buckets with new water you add a few drops of chlorine to double kill anything that might be in the water or get contaminated out in the field unless you are using portable water.

Assign one person with a truck or golf cart who runs around and refill’s water and soap. Dependent on our situation the dirty water can be dumped or collected. If dumped, dumped 100′ away from the hand wash station, or it becomes a muddy mess.

Instead of an aluminum pump holder, you just use tube straps on a piece of wood or rubber mat. It keeps the pump flat and easy to access: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Oatey-1-1-2-in-Galvanized-Tube-Strap-2-Hole-33500/303434697

Water hose only needs to 1/8″ or ¼”

Cheap, easy, extremely portable, you can put all the contents in one bucket and slide one bucket into the next. Make them part of your units camping equipment.

If you want to get fancy, by half the buckets with lids and cut a hole in the side for the tubing. It puts the hand wash up a little higher as one bucket sits on the lid of the other bucket.

You can just put the soap on the ground or hand one from the side rubber banded to something that hooks on the bucket.

I will be receiving the Silver Beaver Honor from the Denver Area Council, Boy Scouts of America this March.

It is truly an honor to be recognized by this organization

However, I could not have received this honor without the hard work and dedication of the volunteers of the Timberline District, Denver Area Council, Boy Scouts of America.

They do all the hard work, I just look good because of their efforts.

Thank you.

Way to go Primal Wear! and the Denver Area Council of the BSA!
