The Safeliving blog has a graphic of a poster from the National Health Service (NHS) headlined "Public Service Propaganda Posters." So it is the propaganda aspect that is interesting for researchers in this case. The poster informs us that "Hands can transfer germs to every surface you touch" and suggests "Clean your hands as soon as you can."

This is part of a discourse, fair enough, but it may also be true. There could exist such things as germs and it may be good practice to wash hands. I am making this point as it seems the sort of thing that may get lost in this IAS project.

The Safeliving Blog has added a link to the Protection Science Swicki and set the search to start with "anxieties" and "danger" . This explains why these search terms are getting bigger on the word cloud. See recent screenshot.

I have also added ISO27000 and this is getting some attention. The Swicki allows votes on results for each search. So it could get better, in various directions.
