"Hygiene is the sum of all measures which serve to sustain human health"
The aim of our work is the recognition of infectious diseases and intoxications and their prevention. The precautions taken for this include diminishing the risk for exposure to pathogens and toxins, techniques and procedures for cleaning, processing, disinfection and sterilisation. With respect to the variety of conceptual formulations hygiene is a multidisciplinary special field of work. The term hygiene is derived from the name of the Greek goddess for health and well-being, Hygeia.
