Safeguard, the Philippines’ leading family germ protection soap, has been keeping the nation safe for over 54 years. Today, Safeguard is at the frontlines protecting Filipinos at home and beyond with its wide portfolio of germ protection products, including hand sanitizer.
As the nation’s health and hygiene partner, Safeguard further strengthens its mission towards a SAFE Philippines with the launch of its partnership with Shopee Philippines in keeping its 6,000 Shopee Express riders equipped with proper hand hygiene. This partnership ensures that Filipinos who are shopping safely from their own home and Shopee Express riders are equally protected by Safeguard from the 99.9% of ill-causing germs.
Ensuring 99% of SAFE Deliveries
The initial restrictions in movements during the first few weeks of lockdown have led to the closure of restaurants, malls, supermarkets, and shops in general. It led to the rise in delivery economy and services that have since connected millions of Filipinos. As our country adjusts to the new normal, wherein most are still staying at home, delivery services have proven to be essential in providing Filipinos their necessary needs without the inconvenience and heightened threat of outside exposure.
With this, Safeguard and Shopee sealed its partnership to provide safer transactions in every delivery by equipping 6,000 riders of the Shopee Express fleet with on-the-go Safeguard hand sanitizers. The alliance puts in place stringent protocols of hand sanitation before and after every delivery, which includes using sanitizers when running water and soap are not available.
The partnership encourages riders to effectively practice proper hygiene through the disinfection of their hands and ensures that customers are provided the safety they need against the threat of germs whenever they receive their deliveries. Safeguard and Shopee has been partners not just in e-commerce but also in helping the nation during these uncertain times.
Advocacy in Keeping Filipinos SAFE
Safeguard has partnered with the Department of Health for the BIDA Solusyon laban sa COVID-19 campaign. BIDA, which stands for Bawal walang mask, Isanitize ang kamay, Iwas hawak sa mga bagay, Dumistansya ng isang metro, and Alamin ang totoong impormasyon, are key preventive measures that Filipinos can do to fight the pandemic. The program aims to help Filipinos realize the value of doing their own part in helping prevent the spread of COVID-19 through proper hygiene and social distancing measures that they can practice at home and beyond.
According to a survey from the DOH, only 1 out of 10 Filipinos know how to wash their hands properly. As a way to address this, Safeguard utilized its media network and alliances with groups like the Philippine Association of Medical Technologists (PAMET) to strengthen proper hand hygiene education. Over the next few weeks, Safeguard, along with other P&G brands, will release a series of informational materials that demonstrate proper hygiene practices, one of which is handwashing.
Safeguard hand sanitizer removes 99.9% of germs and is one with the World Health Organization (WHO) in urging the public to practice protective measures of social distancing, wearing masks, and most importantly, proper handwashing and hand hygiene to reduce the chances of being infected with diseases.
Now that the country is slowly easing in reopening, many are left to wonder how effectively they can keep themselves protected from the threats of germs and viruses. Together with masks and social distancing, Safeguard helps Shopee towards the vision of a SAFE Philippines by protecting the deliveries that a lot of Filipinos rely on.
