STAFF can adopt various methods of cutting the risk of passing on superbug infections while working in the community.
Community infection control nurse Julie Hartley said these included such actions as using alcohol gel.
Workers could keep this in a tube which could be attached to their waist on an elasticated strap.
The gel could be used like hand cream three times before soap was needed. There were also hand-wipes.
And she said plans were afoot to provide alcohol hand wash gel at the end of every bed at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary.
It is available in every ward.
Portable sinks are increasingly being used.
Julie said: "For example, if a podiatrist is working at a village hall which does not have a sink, a portable one can be used.
"We are always auditing facilities and we have found better compliance with the regulations, year on year."
The roadshow is the fourth such annual event run by the Community Infection Control for Huddersfield and Calderdale. The aim is to raise awareness, investigate hand washing facilities in health centres' clinical areas, assess staff's compliance with hand hygiene policy and find out care workers' attitudes to and knowledge of hand hygiene.
The roadshow was first held in 2001, in response to a Department of Health document of March, 1999.
A roadshow for primary care trust staff was held at Mill Hill Health Centre, Dalton, yesterday.
One is being held this afternoon at Holme Valley Memorial Hospital, Holmfirth.
