TouchSafe - Helping to keep you safe on your way to work 

Personal hygiene is crucial in preventing the spread of unwanted germs. But, if you’re a rail commuter what can you do if you’re faced with having to touch surfaces that you know are hotspots for germs like handrails on trains, buses, trams or the underground?

Our new antimicrobial handheld tool acts as a shield against germs to help keep you safe between hand washing. TouchSafe Transit is ideal for when you’re travelling to and from work using the UK rail network or across major cities by tram, buses, overground or underground trains. During these hours, at the beginning and end of your day, using sanitiser whilst travelling standing up can be impractical and there’s no easy access to handwashing facilities.

TouchSafe Transit is made from conductive material so you can stay safe when using a touchscreen to buy your parking or travel ticket at the station. It can also be used to shield your hands from germs on many other surfaces such as door handles, lifts, light switches, ATMs or entry keypads. It can even be used on shopping trolleys if you need to pop to the shops on your way home – there are hundreds of commonly used surfaces that you can use your TouchSafe Transit on.

How does it protect you?

TouchSafe Transit is an antiviral and antibacterial handguard specifically designed to protect commuters from touching germs whilst travelling. Just hook it over or grab overhead handrails, vertical poles or bars attached to seats or near the doors on trains, the underground, trams and buses.

As an added protection to wearing masks, some people have taken to wearing protective gloves when out and about, but this can be impractical and doesn’t prevent you from transferring germs to your face. Our unique design is shaped to minimise surface contact which means 80% less germs transfer from contaminated surfaces to the TouchSafe Transit compared to a hand.  TouchSafe Transit also has antimicrobial properties which kill over 80% of bacteria in just 15 minutes and up to 99.99% in two hours.

Easy to use

For ease of use when commuting, it comes with an easy clean wrist strap.

TouchSafe Transit can also be used on door handles, lifts, and keypads while you’re moving around your workplace during the day or going out to grab some lunch.  If you need to pop to the shops on your way home you can even use it on shopping trolleys.

To clean your TouchSafe Transit, you can give it a quick wash for a mere 20 seconds with soap and water during your lunch hour or pop it in the dishwasher at the end of the day. Compact, lightweight, multi-functional and robust, just the ticket to keep you safe when you’re on the go.

A Dr Bright Idea

TouchSafe was conceived by general practitioner, Dr Stephen Bright in response to the current Covid-19 outbreak. Dr Bright recognised a need for TouchSafe after observing how patients and healthcare colleagues touched the many door handles and surfaces in his surgery, with and without protective gloves and before and after access to hand sanitiser. The product was developed by UK manufacturer OGM which has launched the TouchSafe Transit for UK commuters.

Handwashing over all else

The use of TouchSafe is intended as a barrier to touching contaminated surfaces not as a substitute to hand washing. Hand washing with soap and water is still the most effective way to control the spread of infection from viruses and bacteria.
